About Muktinath Temple

Muktinath Temple covered by snow

Muktinath Temple is located in the Annapurna Conservation Area at Mustang District of Nepal at an altitude of 3710 meters and 22 km North-East of Jomsom. The Temple is popularly known as "Mukti 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, meditated 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.

The word Muktinath is the composition of two words "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.

Amazing Trip to Mukthinath by Helicopter

Amazing Trip to Mukthinath by Helicopter

We had an amazing trip to Mukthinath by helicopter from Kathmandu organized by Lumle Holidays.

Nipendra Maharjan and his team put together a flawless program that helped us to achieve our ultimate objective. 

The day we arrived in Kathmandu was raining. And we all we're worried about our heli ride to Muktinath. But, due to the grace of Muktinath, we were lucky that the weather became very clear from the morning, and without any disturbance our trip became success.

His team is highly recommended without any doubts.

Perfectly Safe & Comfortable Heli Yatra to Mukthinath

Perfectly Safe & Comfortable Heli Yatra to Mukthinath

Mukthinath yatra by helicopter from Pokhara through Lumle. A big thanks to Mr. Naresh who accompanied us and Mr. Nipendra, who coordinated.

The arrangements were excellent, the hotel very comfortable. Mr. Naresh was very helpful and went out of the way to ensure we got a great darshan.

Everything was timely, the helicopter arrangement to Mukthinath was the best. We got to spend nearly an hour at the holy temple.

The chopper ride was smooth. Mr. Naresh made sure we got the best darshan. He took care of every need and was kind enough to drop us back to the hotel at Kathmandu.

We felt perfectly safe, comfortable, and well informed about important places en route.

Thanks, Naresh and Nipendra for everything.
