Muktinath Helicopter Tour (From Kathmandu)

Muktinath Helicopter Tour (From Kathmandu)

Muktinath Helicopter Tour (From/to Kathmandu) for best adventure holidays or religious journey is one of most popular Muktinath tours by helicopter ride.  Muktinath Temple (Chumig Gyatsa) is located at the laps of snow-capped mountains at Thorong-La mountain pass at an altitude of 3,802 meters above sea level in Mustang district of Nepal. This temple is covered in one of the famous trekking routes of Annapurna Circuit.

The Pagoda style Muktinath Temple is a symbol of the religious symbiosis between both Hindus and Buddhists. Hindus believe that Lord Vishnu got salvation from the curse of Brinda (wife of Jalandhar) here. Therefore he is worshipped as Muktinath (Lit. the lord of salvation). The holy shrine, which is said to have risen on its own, is one of eight such shrines (the others include Srirangam, SriMushnam, Tirupati, Naimisaranyam, Thottadri, Pushkaram, and Badrinath). It is also one of 108 Vaishnava shrines. Here in the early 19th century, the Hindus consecrated a Vishnu Temple and named it Muktinath - Lord of Liberation. Against a backdrop of incredible starkness, you can sit and stare to the south at the snow-covered Annapurna range, or to the north the Tibetan plateau.

Muktinath Temple word is derived from Mukti and Nath. “Mukti” means “Salvation or Nirvana” and “Nath” means “God or Master”. 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. The name is a synthesis of two words - (the provider of salvation) has been one such holy site, where thousands of devotees flock for attaining the much sought after moksha (Freedom) from the cycle of birth and rebirth. It is an ardent wish or a dream if you may say, of every Hindu to get Mukti-Nirvana from this cycle taking births over and over again. It is the belief of the Hindus that this world is “MAYA” (an illusion) and the earliest one gets out of it the better and a visit to Muktinath will help them achieve that goal. Since then it has been called Muktinath. The Hindus call it Muktichhetra (place of salvation) is one of the four religious sites. Many Shaligrams (Ammonite) found during Muktinath Tour over here are considered by Hindu as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and worship them. According to Hindu Myth lord Vishnu turned into Shaligram because of Brinda’s Curse. Muktinath Temple is open throughout the year but especially in Rishitarpani, Ram Navami, and Bijay Dashami. Thousands of pilgrims gather here to celebrate the festivals.
