One of the most popular Hindu temple visiting packages is a helicopter trip to Pathivara Devi temple in eastern Nepal. Pathibhara Devi or Mukkumlung (as stated in Mundhum of Limbu people) is one of Nepal's most important temples, located on the hill of Taplejung. It is also regarded as a holy site by the Limbu people. Worshippers from all across Nepal and India go to the temple on important occasions since it is believed that a visit to the temple guarantees the fulfillment of the pilgrims' desires.
