Best time for Damodar Kunda by Helicopter

Most people travel to Damodar Kunda or the Upper Mustang area between April and September. The majority of Nepal’s trekking routes are accessible for hikes in the fall and spring. This is because these months feature consistent weather with little snowfall or rain. In these months, issues like road closures, difficulty from rain and snowfall, muddy trails, etc. do not happen.

The Upper Mustang trail trekking, however, is not covered by this. The region does not experience monsoons since it is in a rain shadow. So, people can visit the region from mid-spring to mid-autumn peacefully. However, the winter months on the trails bring severe cold and snowfall. So Damodar Kunda’s visit is not typically scheduled for the winter. But this does not necessarily apply to our Damodar Kunda by helicopter trip.

The majority of people believe it to be the leader among “liberation areas.” According to Puranas, bathing in this lake allowed Kubera’s sons to wash their sins away. Because they consider this location to be sacred, pilgrims frequently travel there. During holidays like Janai Purnima and Chaite Dashain, a large number of pilgrims visit the sacred spot.

Mansarovar, another well-known Hindu destination, is where many people think the lake’s water originates.
