Besides, travelers can witness the entire Mustang region including Jomsom and Lo Manthang. Muktinath is astoundingly popular among Hindu followers and among all as Kedarnath in India. The English translation of Muktinath is the sacred land of salvation or redemption. Therefore, Hindus from all over the world go to Muktinath expecting that they can wash out their sins by having a bath from 108 water spouts there. People go there by trekking but the Muktinath Helicopter is the most convenient way of getting there and coming back to major cities like Pokhara and Kathmandu.

Muktinath Helicopter Tour is about a 4 hours tour. Muktinath Helicopter Tour can be done from both Kathmandu and Pokhara. If you like to do the Muktinath Heli Tour from Pokhara, the cost will definitely be cheaper than doing the Muktinath Helicopter Tour from Kathmandu. For this, tourists can take a short flight or road drive to Pokhara and then can do a Helicopter Tour to Muktinath. If you are already in Pokhara, you can simply book a helicopter and fly to Muktinath.

Initially, the flight heads to Annapurna mountain range and giant Dhaulagiri as you leave Pokhara. Or, if you are doing Muktinath Helicopter Tour from Kathmandu, you will enjoy incredible landscapes and other mountain peaks before the Annapurna Himalayan range looms over you. Slowly, you will begin to experience the beauty of both the Annapurna and Mustang regions. Finally, you land at Muktinath and spend around 1 hour exploring the Muktinath Temple located at an elevation of 3800m, and can take a holy bath from 108 water taps for eternal salvation.
