Muktinath Helicopter tour

The helicopter flight to Muktinath temple

Last October, we did a helicopter tour of Muktinath Temple with our 10 group of people from Kathmandu. We got to know that only five people can travel in one helicopter. Thus, Boundless Adventure managed two helicopters for our team. The tour went amazing. The helicopter flight to Muktinath temple with the aerial view of the majestic Himalayas will forever be in our hearts.

As it was peak season, we couldn’t land at the nearest helipad in Muktinath. We landed a little far and got to Muktinath through horseback riding. The professionalism and friendliness of the Boundless Adventure team made the trip even more enjoyable. They were ensuring our safety throughout our journey. We highly recommend the Muktinath helicopter tour with Boundless Adventure.

Landing near the Muktinath temple

We can’t express our feelings by writing this review we had in our Muktinath helicopter tour. And, of course, Boundless Adventure’s exceptional care and service towards us is commendable. The scenic flight of around one and a half hours was thrilling, with each part providing a different perspective of Nepal’s extraordinary landscape.

Landing near the Muktinath temple was so relaxing, and that feeling was like stepping foot in heaven. Luckily, we were in a less traffic season. Thus, we could land at the nearest helipad without requiring long walking to reach the temple. From the temple’s premises to each part of the region, everything seems to be magical. Boundless Adventure ensured that our journey was smooth and memorable.

We highly recommend the Muktinath helicopter tour to anyone seeking a quick and unique Nepal adventure with no other Boundless Adventures.

Muktinath Temple and the Buddhist monastery.

Choosing the Muktinath helicopter tour with Boundless Adventure was a decision that I’ll never regret. Our family had a memorable time and journey on the tour. Boundless Adventure welcomed us hospitably at Tribhuvan International Airport and dropped us off at our hotel. They were our best companions from the beginning to the end of our journey. We had a great chance to explore the Muktinath Temple and the Buddhist monastery.

The helicopter was of the latest model, the pilot was skilled, and the journey was smooth and comfortable. Seeing the majestic landscapes of Mustang and Muktinath from above and closer was a sight we’ll cherish for our entire lives. Also, the aerial views of the Annapurna and other mountain ranges were just beautiful. Visiting the temple and bathing at 108 water sports provide our bodies with positive urges. The tour was memorable, thanks to Boundless Adventure for their well-organized service.
