Trip Overview

Muktinath Temple is located in the Mustang District of Nepal (Annapurna Conservation Area;3710 meters,22 km North-East from Jomsom). The Temple is popular among Hindus and Buddhists. The place is called "Mukti Kshetra" by Hindus as they believe that one can obtain Moksha/Mukti (salvation) if s/he worships here. Similarly, Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa (i.e The Hundred Springs).

108 water sprouts are the major attraction of the temple. Devotees take a quick bath in the icy cold water coming from the sprouts. Jwala Mai temple, nearby, also adds a religious significance to this place. It is one of the most famous pilgrimage sites of the Himalayan area.

Pashupatinath is the most sacred Hindu temple (Lord Shiva) listed on the UNESCO World Heritage site. Situated on the bank of the Bagmati river, it is a Pagoda-styled temple with a golden roof and four silver doors.
