Muktinath Yatra - 6 days
Muktinath- Muktikshetra Place of Shalagramas and Abode of Lord Vishnu

Muktinath- Muktikshetra Place of Shalagramas and Abode of Lord Vishnu. It is also called Chumig Gyatsa (Hundred Waters) in Tibetan is a sacred place for both Hindus and Tibetan Buddhists at 3750 meters (12,300 feet). It is a great example of how two religions can share the same holy spot with mutual respect and support.

In Muktinath all the elements are represented; not only earth, air and holy water, but also fire. Beside trees are growing at an unusual altitude. For this and reasons unseen yogis from both religions do their meditation at Muktinath.

Shaligram stone, the black-coloured Ammonoid fossil is found only in Nepal, mostly to river Kali Gandaki near Muktinath. It is believed to be the representation of Bhagwan Shri Vishnu in Hindu religion. This river, also known as the Salagrami, is a few hours walking from Muktinath.

Twelve village) in the district of Mustang in the north central part of Nepal,and it is about 20 kms northeast of Jomsom at an altitude of about 3800 meters from the sea level. It is a gate way to Mustang from Manang in famous Annapurana circuit Trek route. Named after highly referred Muktinath shrine the valley is one of religious place in Nepal for both Hindus and Buddhist.The Hindus call it Muktichhetra (Place of salvation) is one of the four religious sites. Many Shaligrams (Ammonite) found here are considered by Hindu as incarnation of lord Vishnu and worship them. According to Hindu Myth lord Vishnu turned into Shaligram because of Brinda’s Curse.Similarly Buddhist calls this valley the Chumig Gyatsa (place of 108 waterspouts).

It is believed that Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambha) the scholar founder of Tibetan Buddhism once meditated and gained lifetime achievement of spiritual knowledge here while on his way to Tibet on 12th century. The valley has seven historic village: Putak, Jhong, Chhyonkhar, Purang, Jharkot and khinga. Ranipauwa (lit.queen's pilgrim hostel, named after queen Subarna Prabha Devi) is a new settlement founded by people of Purang. The main ethnic group of the valley is Bhotias.
