Muktinath Temple is located in the Annapurna Conservation Area at Mustang District of Nepal at an altitude of 3710 meter and 20 km North-East of Jomsom. The Temple is popularly known as "Muktinath Dham" for "Hindus" and "Chumig Gyatsa" for "Buddhist". Hindus worshipped the place as "Mukti Kshetra", from where people are liberated or obtain Moksha. Similarly, Buddhists worship the deity as one of the "Bodhisattvas". It is said that Guru Rinpoche, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism and also known as Padmasambhava, mediated here on his way to Tibet.

Muktinath is the only place on earth where one can find all five elements – Fire, Water, Sky, Earth, and Air. They found in their own form at the place near Jwalamai Devi Temple. Thus, is known as Sri Murthy Mahatmyam.

Muktinath Temple word is derived from "Mukti" and "Nath". "Mukti" means "Salvation or Nirvana" and "Nath" mean "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.

Muktinath Yatra by Road has never been a quick or easy journey due to the geographical difficulties and ever changing mountain weather. Muktinath Temple can be reached via rough dirt roads drive spending lots of days by four wheeler jeep from Beni in the south or via hiking from the East or North crossing Thorong-La Pass Mountain at 5416 meters. Therefore, if you lack time and desire to visit Muktinath Temple in just a day then, this "Muktinath Helicopter Tour" might become beneficial to you.

The first best time to visit Muktinath Temple of a year starts from March till June and second begins from September till December. You will find the blue sky and clear climate throughout these months. You can spot lots of snow-capped mountains ranging from Langtang to Annapurna in the north direction while flying by helicopter.
