The Pathivara Temple is a significant pilgrimage site in Nepal. Located at an altitude of 3794 m (12444 ft.) in eastern Nepal, this temple is dedicated to Goddess Pathivara Devi. This incredible temple is also known as “Mukkumlung” in the local language.
A helicopter ride to Pathivara temple provides you breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains and another natural vista. You can observe Kanchenjunga and other mountains of the Kumbhakarna Himalayan range. Pathivara temple is a famous “Shakti Peeth” worshipped by Hindus and Kirats alike.
Moreover, the Pathivara Mai is also known as the goddess of wealth and energy. The pilgrims believe that worshipping in the temple fulfills their desire and wishes. It takes quite an extended hiking journey to arrive at the temple. Not many pilgrims can make this uphill hike in remote terrain.
