Best Time for Muktinath Helicopter Tour

Helicopter tours in Nepal are all season tour services in Nepal. The only difference is that some seasons are peak and crowded whereas some are not. In Nepal, there are 4 seasons: Summer/Monsoon, Autumn, Winter, and Spring. 

Among them, spring and autumn are the best seasons for Muktinath Helicopter tour whereas winter and monsoon are the least or off-season of the year. 

March-May and September-November are the best time of the year for the Muktinath tour as the weather is clear offering a clean and wide view of great Himalayas, drylands, villages, temples and more.

December-February and June-August are the least favorite time to visit Muktinath and Damodar. During the winter season, the temperature is freezing cold which makes traveling very difficult and cold mist blocks the mountain views and scenery. While in monsoon season, there is frequent rainfall, storms, strong winds which makes flight trip risky and rain clouds blurs the views and scenery of the surrounding area.
