muktinath, Muktinath Darshan, Nepal Tour

Muktinath Yatra with Swami ji 2017

Muktinath had always been a holy place for not only Hindu but for other religion like Buddhist also. It was my perception that most Hindus visited this place but I was quite amazed to see people from other religion also visiting there. a few people were there for a spiritual reason and few were for other adventures. Few people were there for traveling purpose.

If you want to feel the Aroma of Nature with the divine feeling of Hindu & Buddha Religion, come to Muktinath, 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 Mustang, Nepal.
