Trip Overview

Muktinath Temple Tour is a religious tour. Where there is a religion, there is a history. Undoubtedly, Muktinath is one of the gateways to one of the famous religious places of the Hindus. In the eyes of the Hindus, and from the perspective of the Hindus, Muktinath is worth exploring. Muktinath a religious tour, it won’t be wrong at all. Just like the Hindus, the Buddhists hold the Muktinath in a high esteem. Located in the district called Mustang, Muktinath, the temple, has bountiful, natural beauties.

Altitude wise Muktinath is located at 3710 m. and distance wise it is 48 km away from north east of Jomsom. Muktinath is little visited by the tourists in comparison to Everest.

Muktinath Temple has a pagoda style design, dedicated to Lord Bishnu, in a picturesque location. When you see 108 water spouts behind this beautiful temple, in the shape of cow headed, you have a feeling that you have self-imposed yourself in a mythological place.

Muktinath draws a lot of visitors during the festival season of Janaipurnima. Muktinath can be accessed by a flight from Pokhara to Jomsom or by a walk.

Muktinath temple tour creates a buzz that this world is “Maya” (an illusion). Muktinath is considered to be one of the 24 Tantric places in the Tibetan Buddhist faith. According to tradition, Guru Rinpoche, who founded the Tibetan faith, stopped here to worship the Dakinis or sky dancing goddesses, on his way to Tibet. For the Hindus, the importance of the shrine is a bit different. Hindu Vashanavites consider the Muktinath shrine to be one of the eight most sacred shrines on earth. They consider the Muktinath to be one of the 108 holy places where a person should worship lord Vishnu. The desert beauty of Mustang will steal your heart, and it is mesmerizing.
