This helicopter tour is considered one of the shortest helicopter tours in Nepal. The Gosainkunda Lake Helicopter tour from Kathmandu to Kathmandu offers landing at the bank of the holy lake Gosainkunda. Before returning back, a break is given to the visitors for any puja, Havan, or holy bath. Further visitors can also explore the beautiful lakes and spectacular mountain views. Strolling around the lake one can get to see the astonishing reflection of surrounding snow-clad mountains in the crystal clear lake of Gosainkunda which is truly outstanding.


Gosainkunda lake is considered a holy site for Hindus and Buddhists. Due to its holiness, every year a large number of pilgrims visit this sacred place. Gosainkunda Lake is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva when he thrust his holy Trident into a mountain to extract water so that he could cool his blazing throat after he had swallowed poison. Further, the large rock in the center of the lake is said to be the remains of the Shiva Shrine. Pilgrims visiting this place believe that taking a bath in the holy lake takes away the pain, sorrow, and sins.

Not only for the religious tour, Gosainkunda is also popular for incredible mountain views and beautiful glaciers lakes. The enthralling beauty of Gosainkunda attracts thousands of trekkers to do the Gosainkunda Lake Trek. A number of trekkers do this trek as part or extension of Langtang Valley Trekking or Helambu Trek.  If you wish then you can also relish in the serene environment of Gosainkunda by joining the Gosainkunda Lake Helicopter Tour.

Situated at an elevation of 4380m, Gosainkunda is one of the renowned mountain trekking destinations in Nepal. It is an alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake in the Rasuwa district of Nepal and has been designated a Ramsar site on 29 September 2007. The lake melts down and remains frozen to form the Trishuli River and remains frozen for six months of the winter from October to June. For this reason, Gosainkunda lake is also known as a frozen lake.

    FAQs

    • Q1. Is the Gosaikunda lake helicopter tour safe in Nepal? 

      Yes, as long as you strictly follow the advice offered by our travel professionals, the  Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour in Nepal is entirely safe. The flights will take off only after a thorough assessment of the weather and surroundings.  Only until the experts have signaled that it is safe to fly do we begin the tour. 

      All of our fleets are constantly maintained and flown by highly skilled pilots with an exceptional flight crew. So, in terms of safety, you will be addressed with and by the best.

       

    • The tour will last around 1 and 1/2 hours from the time we leave the airport till we return.  However, the time it takes to go to the airport will be determined by where you choose to fly from. You can fly out of either Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu or from Sivapuri national park. 

    • The helicopter's maximum altitude is unknown. However, the maximum height for landing and taking off at Gosaikunda Lake will be 4,380m. The chopper ascends above 4,500  meters on this flight.

    • 'It depends,' is the quick answer. The Gosaikunda Helicopter conserves energy and time.  Except for the hike itself, you will not miss anything. However, not everyone has the luxury of spending long hours trekking, and not everyone is physically well enough to do so, 

      which is why most people prefer the help trip. Aside from that, the tour has perks. You will have an exciting helicopter flight to and from Gosaikunda. A breathtaking bird's-eye view of the Langtang region's natural beauty and scattered settlements. Furthermore, you will avoid the additional expense of camping and trekking equipment. Nonetheless, it is dependent on your preferences and what you hope to gain from the vacation. 

    • Given the short length of time, we will spend at Gosaikunda Lake, we are unlikely to get altitude sickness. Because the location is relatively low in altitude, the risk is lower. Please keep in mind, however, that you may never be completely certain. If you have AMS, our crew will provide first-aid treatment. If your condition worsens, you will be moved to a  lower altitude or to Kathmandu. If more therapy is required, it will be offered.

    • Whatever time of year you visit, the Gosaikunda region has something special to offer.  However, if we had to choose, the finest season for the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour would be autumn, followed by spring. The lake is at its most fun during these periods, and the mountain vistas are unobstructed. 

    • Yes. Flight delays and cancellations are common during the monsoon season due to heavy rain and severe weather conditions. The helicopter trips will be organized at first to avoid any delays or issues. However, there is always the possibility of a flight delay or cancellation. If the flight is canceled, you will be refunded in accordance with our refund policy. 

       

    • Yes, we have emergency oxygen tanks on every single one of our helicopters. The course of acute mountain sickness (AMS) can vary. As a result, we always have first aid supplies and an oxygen tank with us. 

    • Yes, children and elderly people can take the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour in Nepal. 

       

    • Weather conditions and forecasts will affect the time of landing at Gosaikunda. We often arrive in 20 to 25 minutes.

    • Beautiful scenery

      There are no words to describe this level of natural beauty. Must visit location! Beautiful scenery along the way. This lake is located at a height of 4300 meters above sea level. Very daring, but well worth it. It was simple to make a reservation with Mountain Rock Trek.

    • sacred lake, Gosainkunda Lake.

      The Hindu and Buddhist communities in India and Nepal are very fond of Gosainkunda. Lauribinayak Pass trekking is also well-known. I had some truly incredible experiences there. I traveled to Gosaikunda by helicopter this time , which offers simple and quick access to the most sacred lake in the world, Gosainkunda Lake.
