Best time for Gosaikunda Heli Tour

The fact that you are not at the whim of muddy, slippery routes, closed roads, heavy downpours, or snowfall is the primary advantage of seeing Gosaikunda Lake on a helicopter trip. The Gosaikunda Helicopter tour package is one of the many that Footprint Adventure has available at all times of the year. However, the fall and spring seasons are when the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour is at its busiest, so those are the best times to go. Besides this, during the festival time, it would be even more interesting to explore such as Janai Purnima, Dashain, Tihar, etc
