Muktinath Pilgrim Tour
Muktinath is a sacred site both for Hinduists and Buddhists. It is located in the Muktinath valley at an altitude of 3,710 meters at the foot of the Thorong La mountain pass (part of the Himalayas) in Lower Mustang, Nepal. It is also a gate way to Upper Mustang from Manang along the famous Annapurana circuit trek route. It is about 110 km from Pokhara and 20 km northeast from Jomsom. Each year it witnesses thousands of devotees flocking for worship in hope to receive moksha (salvation) from the cycle of birth and rebirth. The main attractions include temples such as Jwala Mai Temple, Swaminarayan, Shaligram and Gomba Samba. Jwala Mai Temple has natural gas. Apparently two flames are continuously burning above the flowing water. From here, you could also see great close-up mountainous views of Nilgiri, Thorong La peak, Dhaulagiri and many more...
