Muktinath Helicopter Tour

The Holy Muktinath, a sacred place both for Hindus as well as Buddhists, is located at an altitude of 3,750 m at the foot of Thorong-La pass in Mustang district. The Hindus call the place Mukti Kshetra, which means the "the place of salvation", while the Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa, Tibetan for 'Hundred Waters'. The main shrine of Muktinath is a pagoda – shaped temple dedicated to the Lord Vishnu. Water from the Gandaki River spurts out of the 108 waterspouts near the temple and Hindu devotees take their ritual bath. Muktinath is also one place where one can find 'saligrams'. Saligram (Ammonite fossil) is a black stone that when broken open, reveal the fossilized remains of prehistoric ammonites formed about 130 million years ago. Hindus believe that Lord Vishnu reside in the saligrams'. Jwala Mai Temple, Marme Lhakhang and Gompa Sarwa are the other religious shrines located in the vicinity of Muktinath Temple. You can either hike up there from Jomsom which will take you about 5-7 hours or simply choose our offer of heli flights to Muktinath. Heli tour to the sacred Muktinath has recently been gaining popularity. Helicopter tour is not only a great way to save time but also gives you an impeccable view of the whole region from a bird's eye, something only a handful of people experience. Some say the Muktinath heli tour felt like a 'fairy tale'.

Ground time : 1.5 hr at Rani Pawa Gaou.
