    About - Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour

    Gosaikunda is one of the most popular and best destinations for Helicopter Tours in Nepal. Every year thousands of people visit this holy place in pursuit of peace and blessing. Gosaikunda is a sacred place in Nepal that is venerated by both Hindus and Buddhists. Gosaikunda Lake is an alpine freshwater lake in Langtang National Park in the Rasuwa district, at an elevation of 4,380 meters (14,370 feet). Each year during the months of Shrawan (mid-July to mid-august), thousands of Nepalese and Indian pilgrims visit this holy place to worship and pray to the supreme god Lord Shiva and Goddess Gauri.

    Gosaikunda is not only known as the great holy place of Nepal but this is one of the most beautiful destinations to explore for natural beauty. A huge number of tourists visit Gosaikunda to enjoy its true beauty in a peaceful environment. The lake's surface area is around 34 acres, and it remains frozen for the entirety of the winter season, from October to June. The beauty of the Gosaikunda Lake and other associated lakes mesmerize anyone who approaches there. The oligotrophic lakes reflect the snow-capped mountains, and mostly the treeless hills take your breath away. Gosaikunda is one of the best destinations with lots of things to do. The most popular are the Trekking and Helicopter Tours. The Gosaikunda trek requires long walking while the Helicopter tour is the quickest, and simplest way to approach the Holy land.

    Gosaikunda's origins may be traced back to the Ramayana and Mahabharata epics, which allude to the lake as Samundra Manthan. According to Hindu mythology, Gosaikunda is the abode of the Hindu gods Shiva and Gauri. The water of Gosaikunda is considered holy, and people from all across Nepal and India go to the site during the Hindu festivals of Gangadashahara and Janai Purnima. The lake is thought to have developed after Lord Shiva sank his Trishul (Shiva's Trident) into the mountain to collect water to soothe his burning throat after swallowing poison. Pilgrims believe that drinking water from Gosainkunda Lake will protect their bodies from damage for the rest of their lives.

    The greatest way to appreciate the magnificence of the entire Gosaikunda region is to take a Gosaikunda helicopter tour. Because the flight departs from Kathmandu, you will be treated to spectacular aerial views of the entire Kathmandu valley as well as the surrounding lush hills. Slowly, the plane rises, revealing a vista of the Himalayas rising over the foothills. You'll be mesmerized by the overhead views of the hills, rivers, cannons, communities, cultural and historical landmarks, and ponds. The aerial views of the hills and clouds surrounding the valley are the highlight of the flight. The rest of the flight is incredible.

    The treeless slopes gradually appear, followed by a series of oligotrophic aquamarine lakes. The Gosaikunda area is known for its treeless hills. The snow-capped Himalayas dominated the background above the treeless hills in the north. We land near the GosaiKunda, or Gosai Pond, and begin exploring the gorgeous Gosaikunda area, as well as visiting several surrounding linked lakes. If you are a pilgrim who wants to pray and worship, there is also time set out for Havan Puja. Before flying back, we eat breakfast in a nearby village, having gained a once-in-a-lifetime experience and capturing the grandeur of Gosaikunda's remote and holy region.

    Major Highlights of the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour 

    Spectacular Aerial Views

    The aerial views are one of the delights of the Gosaikunda Helicopter tour. The gorgeous Kathmandu valley and the neighboring hills around it are breathtaking. Furthermore, the hills and ridges hidden behind fogs and clouds, as well as the cannon between two massive hills shrouded in mist, are like a fantasy realm. The first thing you notice is the breathtaking aerial view of the Langtang valley and Gosaikunda, both of which appear to be breathtaking from above.

    Treeless Hills around the Gosaikunda Area

    Gosaikunda is the Himalayan land and the lakes are frozen almost for half of the year. For more than 4 mounts, the snow covered the entire area. The significance of the Gosaikunda and the ridge around the Holy ponds are no trees and somewhere a few small bushes. The isolated desolate of the Gosaikunda is boring or disgusting. Unlike other remote areas, Gosaikunda is a calmful plate. The area is both serene and shrine.

    Biggest Pilgrimage in Nepal and the popular destination for holy travelers

    Nepal is the most popular destination for the holy tour among Hindus and Buddhists from all around the world. Gosaikunda is one of the religious sites in Nepal where numbers of Hindus make the religious tour.

      I always wanted to experience the thrill of a Helicopter ride in the Himalayan area in the surrounding nature and i did that in Nepal on my last trip. I have planned the trek to Annapurna Base Camp and the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour. Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the best treks i have done so far and it is a very beautiful region. And the Gosaikunda Heli ride is best. I am really glad that i did this heli ride and get a new experience for myself. All thanks to the Luxury Holiday Nepal Team.
