The Gosaikunda Helicopter tour is the quickest and most convenient way to travel to Gosainkunda and the surrounding area. A high alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake with a surface area of 13.8 hectares, Gosainkunda is located in the Langtang National Park at an elevation of 4,380 meters above sea level. The Rasuwa district, which is in the northern portion of Kathmandu and close to the border with Tibet, is where this lake is located. It is sometimes referred to as the “frozen lake” since it is frozen from October to June throughout the winter.

A helicopter tour to Gosaikunda offers to explore the sacred pilgrimage in Nepal. Gosaikunda has been known for its holy spa since ancient times. Hindu mythology holds that Lord Shiva constructed this location in order to comfort his painful throat after ingesting poison.

Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims believe that Lord Shiva still exists today and that taking a holy bath in this lake will wash away their sins and sorrows and ensure that they will enter Heaven after death. There are 9 Kunda surrounding this lake, including Bhairab Kunda, Ganesh Kunda, Saraswati Kunda, and others. During the Jani Purnima festival, where thousands of pilgrims go from all over the world, the holy water of this Gosainkunda is very significant.

The Ramayana and Mahabharata epics, which refer to the lake as Samundra Manthan, are deeply connected to the origin of Gosaikunda. According to Hindu mythology, Shiva and Gauri’s residence was at Gosaikunda. During Gangadashahara and Janai Purnima, two significant Hindu festivals, people from various parts of Nepal and India travel to Gosaikunda to worship at the site.

It is thought that the lake was created when Lord Shiva pushed his Trishul (Trident of Shiva) into the mountain to draw water out of it to comfort his burning throat after ingesting poison. According to pilgrims, taking water from Gosainkunda Lake prevents lifelong bodily harm.

The Gosaikunda Heli Tour offers panoramic views of a variety of mountains, including the Shisapangma, Ganesh Himal, and Manaslu Himalayan ranges, as well as the lovely surroundings of Langtang National Park. Because of the ecological richness in this area, there are many different kinds of vegetation. Those who don’t have a high level of physical fitness are nonetheless able to participate in this excursion.

Heli ride to Gosaikunda is the least expensive in comparison to the Everest and Annapurna helicopter tours. A 30-minute stop is allowed at the shore of the lake so visitors can enjoy the breathtaking scenery and holy baths. The Gosainkunda Helicopter Tour lasts for two hours in total; however, the itinerary is flexible. This excursion can also be combined with Heli tours to Everest and Annapurna.

Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour begins from the domestic terminal of Tribhuvan International Airport of Kathmandu. It takes around an hour to get from Kathmandu to Gosaikunda. After a brief introduction of our captains and other required safety information, takeoff is initiated. They will also provide you with instructions on how to handle a crisis.

Following the briefing, the helicopter departs, leaving the runway in its path, and moves toward the north. Within a few minutes of takeoff, we enter Langtang National Park as we soar over Kathmandu’s crowded city. After circling above the scattered Tamang villages and flying next to the enormous, lush green hills, we will arrive at Gosaikunda Lake in about 15 to 17 minutes.

At 4,380 meters above sea level, at Gosaikunda, we will touch down to the backdrop of the enormous Langtang mountain range. Spending more than 30 minutes could lead to altitude sickness because we would have gone to 4,000+m in under half an hour. It is extremely unlikely, though. We, therefore, begin exploring the area to make the most of our brief window of opportunity.

You may let go of everything and just be present at the moment at Gosaikunda Lake because it appears unreal and creates a calming vibe. The enormous Langtang range of mountains will be all around you. It can quickly turn from being bright to snowy at Gosaikunda. Typically, the air is thin and the surroundings are quite cold. The journey comes to an end as we take off for the airport in Kathmandu after breakfast at the renowned Gosaikunda tea house.

Essential info:

Best season for the Gosaikunda helicopter tour

The Gosaikunda Lake is located 4,380 meters above sea level. There are regular weather changes at this height. In the Gosaikunda region, it is typically windy and dry. Therefore, choosing a time that is suitable for a helicopter journey is crucial. When choosing the time for our Gosaikunda trip, we try to avoid cloudy and rainy weather because both will obstruct the views and render the helicopter flight useless.

The autumn and spring seasons are ideal for visiting Gosaikunda. In our experience, most visitors choose autumn. It is simple to take a tour of the lake due to the warm, bright days and dry weather. This time of year offers the clearest views of the Himalayan mountains and the most beautiful scenery. We’ve provided a full description of each season below; we advise you to go through them before deciding which is the best time to visit Gosaikunda.

  • Autumn

For the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour, autumn is the ideal season. Be aware that Gosaikunda Helicopters enjoy favorable weather conditions throughout the year. Since the tour only takes a maximum of two hours, you can still choose a nice time if you missed Autumn. From mid-September through mid-December is considered autumn. The Himalayan views come to life during this period when the sky clears. It is consistently sunny and very pleasant outside. You should anticipate some traffic while visiting Gosaikunda because the majority of visitors choose the autumn season.

  • Spring 

You can also do the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour in the spring. (March to May). The Gosaikunda Heli Tour is thought to be most enjoyable in the spring. There is a mild temperature of between 10°C and 20°C. The view is spectacular at this time of year, and you’ll pass through lush woodlands flowering with rhododendron along the way. Going to Gosaikunda Lake in the spring is even more exciting because there is little to no risk of rain. But there is always a remote possibility, and you can never be too sure. Therefore, it is best to plan ahead.

  • Monsoon 

Summer monsoons occur from June to August. The Gosaikunda region has a warm summer during the period. In lower altitudes, the average daytime temperature is 25°C, although it decreases as you begin to ascend. Rainfall occurs frequently, leaving the area slick and soggy. During the monsoon, trekking is not really a good idea. Views can be obstructed by the weather, which can become hazy. Local farmers work very hard in the field during the monsoon season. Because of this, if you happen to be flying during the monsoon, you will get to see the beautiful terrace farming from the helicopter.

  • Winter

Winters in the Gosaikunda region are bitterly cold. The temperature decreases dramatically at night and varies between 6°C and 9°C during the day. In the winter, the lake will be frozen and surrounded by snow. The views do appear to be beautiful, though, we must concede. If you’re not acclimated to chilly weather, the weather could get uncomfortable. Therefore, if you intend to visit Gosaikunda in the winter, make sure you are well-equipped and packed. Even in the winter, you may enjoy a wonderful helicopter tour to Gosaikunda by following the advice of our travel specialists.
