Day 1: Helicopter tour to Gosaikunda

Overview of Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour

The Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour takes you to the sacred Gosaikunda Lake. This lake believed to have been the former residence of Lord Shiva and Parbati. Countless pilgrims, especially from India and Nepal, come here for their holiness. Due to its beauty, thousands of hikers come here for trekking and extension on the Langtang Valley Trek or Helambu Trek.

The regular hike to Gosaikunda Lake lasts about a week. You also have to cross a mountain pass called Laurebina La, which is quite tricky. Of course, the hike is worth the full strenuous hike for hours for a week if you have the time and energy. When hiking, you can also get in touch with the local culture. However, multi-day trekking in the Himalayas is not the best option for everyone for many reasons, including lack of time or physical strength. However, this shouldn't be the reason not to enjoy this extraordinary Himalayan beauty, especially if you are looking for a spiritual retreat or part of exotic Hindu culture.

Samudra Manthan has been mentioned in many Hindu scriptures as Bhagavata Purana, Vishnu Purana, Ramayana, and Mahabharata, during which Lord Shiva drank the poison. It is believed that he received water from the mountains and formed Lake Gosaikunda to alleviate his sore throat.

There is no risk of altitude sickness as long as you only spend the recommended time on the lake. No preparation is required. The Gosaikunda Lake Helicopter Tour can be immediate decision to add a more exciting and worthwhile activity to your trip to Nepal.

Best Pilgrimage trip in Nepal : Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour review

We were in Nepal on our family vacation trip and had visited many places like Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. However, we were not entirely satisfied with the tour and asked Kishor about the special pilgrimage. He suggests a helicopter ride to Gosaikunda. We didn't know about the helicopter flight to Gosainkunda and that made everything easier. Kishor explains everything in detail. Then we booked the Gosaikunda Heli Tour as it was one of the most important pilgrimage sites of Lord Shiva. There was no way to walk to Gosainkunda and there were no buses available.

It only took us an hour to complete this tour and we had more fun than we thought. The landscape and the lake were so amazing and the lake was surreal. We all were so happy. Thank you Kishor for this amazing experience, I will visit Nepal again.
