Wehave all collectively crafted and placed a memory chip in our minds, embedded with ever green memories of Nepal as a whole. Pasupathinath and Mukthinath with host of other temples which we have never dreamt to even visit are truly soul kindling

Everest ranges often reminds us of " Resham firiri...Resham feriri song, which binds the country of Nepal.

Janakpur, Sakthi Sthal and Swayambunath are places which have thrilled us with it's antique beauty and architecture marvel.

Life can't be full without choicest friends and their families. Mukthinath has bestowed us with three families to ever cherish.

Our sincere thsnks to Base Camp tours Mr. SHANKAR...Our local guide Shiva , Pradeep..they r the best..very good hotel accomodation food and transport

A Hindu & Boudhdha temple dedicated to Sri Vishnu & Sri Budhdha.

Lot if people visit this holy place every year.

Situated in natural beauty at a height of 3800 mtr this place is attracts allof us when we reach this temple.

Darshan is easy. In front of temple there are 2 Kaunda's called Lakshmi & Saraswati Kunda. People take bath in these Holy Kunda.

There are 108 holy taps in which also people will take bath in all 108 taps.

But the route from Pokhra to Muktinath is very worst, I have ever seen. So it is advisable to travel by Helicopter to Muktinath.

The name itself means to get Moksha... The freedom , the Mukti.
The temple has significant value for both Buddhist and Hindu.
Definitely should go there at least once.

What are the options of travel from pokhra to mukti nath?

What's the cost of travel by bike, pony or jeep on sharing basis?

Stay at Muktinath

Muktinath is one of the revered holy sites for Hindus . Situated at an altitude of 3800 m , the place is accessible via helicopter or road transport from Pokhra . In both cases , there are high chances of altitude sickness because the ascent is swift . The temple is truly remarkable with the deity of Vishnu with four hands gracing the devotees by its supreme tranquility . This temple is a unique amalgamation of Hinduism and Buddhism, with Hindus worshipping the deity as Vishnu and Buddhists ,as Avalokiteswara ,indeed a great place for both . The main deity is Vishnu in the centre and Lakshmi and Saraswati as big ones with Garuda , Buddha etc. The main temple inside is accessible only to Buddhist nuns ( surprising isn't it ,considering the staunch Hindu male oriented rituals ) . A Hindu priest sits outside for conducting pooja per Hindu traditions . The temple is also considered to be one of the shaktipeethas
The Tibetan Buddhist tradition states that Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, had meditated at Muktinath on his way to Tibet.( Wikepedia) . There are 108 bull mouth shaped sprouts spraying water and it's considered to be holy bathing under these 108 sprouts

The temple of Muktinath is an amazing, interesting and truly spiritual place.
We stopped by after walking down from the Thorung La pass, while hiking around the Annapurna. One just believes that the peaks, and the ice you see on the pass are the most beautiful things you can see. And then you come down, and you are overwhelmed by the magics of a place where ice, the sky, the natural springs leading to 108 sacred fountains, and a sacred natural flame burning inside the temple for thousands of years, and the shaligrams - materializations of Vishnu in the form of fossil ammonites - and the foot of the many sadhus out of the temple. All the main elements, fire, water, sky and earth - plus ice, a colorful humanity, and soft wool of the colorful scarves that artisans produce - meet in Muktinath. The most amazing thing is also to see the incredible harmony of Buddhism and Induism, both in the architecture and in the people visiting the temple. An amazing place (the temple), within an amazing place (the Muktinath valley), within an amazing place (the Annapurnas).

I visited the temple in the evening. The complex is huge, with many other temples inside the complex itself. There were not many people in the evening, so it was very peaceful to walk around and watch the sunset while sitting next to the statue of Buddha. The temple closes at 6, you can just walk in to the temple and observe the monk offering prayers, and also walk around to see the 108 springs. After crossing the Thorong La, this was a great place to relax. This temple gives you a good perspective into an amalgamation of Hinduism and Buddhism. Must visit in Muktinath

We were 30 of like minded people travelled from Delhi, visited Naimsaranyam, Ayothya and Mukthinath. It is all holy vishnu temples one should visit. Visit to Muithinath need to go with the guide as this is at the bottom of himalayas, wherein we could see the Annapoorna Peak. We were not able to get the flight from Pokra to Jom Jom but went by road and it was 12 hours travel, vehicle could only crawl to this place. The oxygen level is low at Mukthinath and it is advised to visit between 10 AM to 4 PM beyond that it would be difficult to breathe, having camphor would help in breathing. The holy water from himalayas flow in 106 Komuk and 2 kunds Papa kund and Puniya kund in front of the temple. Having bath in thee 108 holy water is considered to be washing away all sins. The idol is of salagram moorthy and also called as salagrama perumal. We are now planning to go to pancha dwaraka during Feb 2019. Mr. Narasimhan is operating from Delhi and provides with accomodation, south India food and his contact is 9810786366. He had planned for Mukthinath, Batrinath during April May 2019.

If you are a Hindu, you likely are visiting for religious reasons. If you are not, it still is worth a visit. Sit on one of the benches that lead up to the temple and observe the people as they go by. Their ages, their determination, their devotion....I was touched more by those than the temple itself
