Muktinath day tour by Helicopter

One of the most popular helicopter tour packages in Nepal is the Muktinath Heli Tour. The tour offers us great peace and tranquillity with views of some of the highest mountains of the world, Annapurna I with 8091 meters and Mt. Dhaulagiri with 8167 meters. We will be able to explore the holy temple of Muktinath and a Tibetan monastery. The tour provides a great experience for the people who do not have enough time for trekking to the sacred place of Muktinath which sits at an altitude of 3710 meters in the Annapurna Region. Muktinath also called Mukti Kshetra and Chumig Gyatsa is a sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists as the temple brings all the elements: air, water, earth and fire, together. The temple is considered one of the eight most sacred sites for the followers of Lord Bishnu. According to the Hindus, the crimes of the people are overlooked if they take bath in the 108 water spouts which pours water from the temple tanks at a freezing temperature.

We start our tour with a helicopter flight around the sacred area of Muktinath located at the foothill of the Thorung La Pass. We will be able to see great views of the high mountains, the highest being the Dhaulagiri and then the Annapurna I. The chopper will land at the helipad of Ranipauwa and provides us an hour to stroll and explore the holy land of Mukti Kshetra. The temple is half an hour far from the helipad which is why we will have to ride horses and jeeps. As we get to the temple, we will worship the god or perform a pooja. Then we will have lunch and get back to Ranipauwa as quickly as possible as the strong winds may affect the flying time of the chopper. The Muktinath helicopter tour is suitable for all age groups and requires a minimum level of fitness. The tour is recommended to groups rather than an individual as the prices vary with group size.

Recommendations for Yatra

Trip insurance is important documents. Touch Kailash Travels and tours do not need your insurance policy for permit and visa confirmation. it is only for your secure and immergency. make sure your insurance cover travelling up to 5600 miter altitude and cover Emmergency rescue and Medical bills.  

Oxygen level is less at higher altitudes. The inclement weather and high altitude induces certain illness generally not encountered over the plains. Headache, nausea, lassitude, lethargy, breathlessness, general uneasiness [malaise], high irritability, light loss of balance, disorientation, incoherence and insomnia are a few. It is common to all irrespective of the age, sex and physical fitness. Gradual acclimatization is the best answer. Tranquilizers, sleeping dose and strong anti-biotic must be avoided. Some of symptoms indicate that the body mechanism is readjusting to new environments. The best idea is deliberately slow down all the activities and follows the following rules:

  • Rest.
  • Relax-do not exert, be excited.
  • Reduce talking.
  • Walk slowly – adopt one third of your speed and space.
  • Keep your load light.
  • Walk for 15 minutes and rest for 5 minutes.
  • Whenever you feel uncomfortable, just stop; rest and relax.
  • Ignore the sudden outbursts of fellow pilgrims and avoid arguments.
  • Observe silence with smile.
  • Never go too high and too fast.
  • Consume plenty of liquids; never proceed with an empty stomach.
  • Chant a prayer or visualize everything around to suit your pleasant thoughts or put on the earphones and listen to your favourite music, bhajans, chanting etc.
  • Be careful not to catch a cold. It is better to be over clothed than under protected. En-route avoids taking bath or drinking water from Lake Streams or rivers, as your system is not conditioned for this.
  • Keep your boots/Ked inside tent. Protect yourself against dust and direct sunshine during the long stretches of driving. Face, feet and hands must be well protected.
  • The uneven ground, steep slope and slushy banks are full of potholes. Do not combine walking and sight seeing together.
  • Always listen to your guide or the one with experience. Never leave the group.
  • On this trip, over exertion is to be avoided and drinking plenty of fluids is recommendable. During winter, heavy warm clothing is a must.
