About Muktinath Helicopter Tour from Pokhara
Muktinath Temple lies in the Mustang district at the base of the Thorang La Mountain pass and is one of the important Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Thousands of pilgrims visit this site as a part of the Annapurna circuit trek, Jomsom Muktinath trek or some drive to the site to offer their praying to Lord Vishnu and bathe in the holy water of Muktinath.
Elevating to 3710m, the pagoda-style temple of Muktinath houses a golden statue of Vishnu. Apart from the main temple, the outer courtyard of the complex is equally divine. The most important one is the 108 bull-faced water sprouts. It is believed that taking a holy bath in the lake located in front of the temple and the water sprout will wash off the sins. Hence, pilgrimages visit the site to bathe in the sacred water to attain salvation.
