Mukti holds great significance for all spiritual people in the south Asian sub-continent. Muktinath this Sanskrit name itself has religious overtone and a sort of emotional ring to it for the devout Hindus.

Muktinath is the popular Vishnu temple located at Dhaulagiri. It is the first highest altitude in the world.

According to Hindu Myth, it is a belief that this world is "MAYA" (an illusion) of a life cycle of birth and rebirth. Everybody seeks to get rid of this cycle and get nirvana. A visit to Muktinath will help to achieve this goal. There are 108 waterspouts in the backyard of this temple called as Muktidhara where frozen water is continuously flowing from the bull head and two Kunda (ponds in front of the temple). Taking bath in these 108 waterspouts and two Kunda (ponds) believes to bring salvation.

It has a Miracle burning lamp on the stream which is believed to be created by the Lord Brahma (god of creation in Hindu mythology). The water pond on the front of the temple is regarded to be the pond for purifying the body and the soul along with the bath on 108 Muktidhara (water taps). The whole area is known as the salvation place where Buddhist monks and Hindu devotees meditate around here. Muktinath Helicopter tour itineraries can be varied according to your trip duration.

Damodar Kund is another holy site that lies in the restricted zone north of Muktinath temple near to Nepal China border. As mentioned in Barah Puran Lord Krishna has said that who pays a visit to this Kund and takes a dip he or she will be freed from all the sin.

In the Puran, it is also mentioned that two sons of Kuber were suffering from their wrongdoings that they did in their previous birth and Lord Krishna advised them to take bath in this holy lake. They followed Krishna’s advice and immediately after they were released from their sins.

Best time to travel Muktinath

If you are also the one planning to explore via helicopter then don’t forget spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the perfect seasons for planning a tour towards Muktinath via Helicopter. The most essential thing to remember is the permit. However, two permits of Annapurna Conservational Area Project Permit (ACAP) and Trekkers Information Management System Permit (TISM) are required to explore this territory. This scared related zone is totally restricted to scout and investigates without these two permits holding opposed religions with mythical stories from ancient times scriptures. So, don’t neglect to discuss the permits before boarding a helicopter. Almost entire devotees follow this scared destination on Himalaya aiming to collect unique experiences with blessings and virtues with pure heart by killing the sins as following the task murmured by old monks there and conduct worship with Buddhist monks by genuine and real heart. Pick up the Muktinath helicopter trip to collect amazing experiences within a short period by neglecting painful efforts behind.

“The road is scary. It is narrow, muddy and steep. I was terrified when the bus swayed side to side on the muddy road,” said Arun Kumar of Tamilnadu, India, who was returning after worshipping at Muktinath Temple.

The narrow stretch has been riskier due to rain. According to transport workers, it takes more than seven hours to travel the 76 km road. “Transportation along the Beni-Jomsom section has been difficult and dangerous due to mudslides triggered by rains. We have been operating transportation services running the full risk for the sake of passengers who are facing difficulties. We clear the debris every morning and run vehicles,” said Mohan KC.

So we recommend you to visit Muktinath temple by Helicopter with no pain.
