Trip Overview

Muktinath as said is the provider of Salvation & has a detailed elaboration in our Dharma Shatras. Muktinath is the only shrine where a combination of Hindu and Buddhist priestdom is found.  The shrine is a beautiful pagodial signature of mix of indo gangetic and Tibetan cultural. A Shradha at the confluence of Kag khola and river Kaligandagi at Kagbeni and worship after that in the shrine of lord Muktianth is heavenly and boon bestowing. One would be enlightened and thrilled to have the Darshan of Lord Vishnu flanked by the idols of His divine consorts Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess earth on right and left. The temple is at the altitude of 3667 mand covers a beautiful panoramic Himalayan view.

A green Oasis at the junction of the Jhong khola and Kali Gandaki river. Kagbeni looks like a town out of the medieval past, with closely packed mud houses, dark tunnels and alleyways, imposing chortens and a large, ochre-colored Gompa perched above the town. Many people still dress in typical Tibetan clothes, though the children have even in this faraway village, learned to beg, rather insistently for pencil a rare commodity.

Around the temple is a wall from which 108 waterspouts, cast in the shape of cows’ heads, pour fourth-sacred water. Even more sacred is the water that issues from rock inside the ancient Tibetan style Jwala Mai Temple, a short distance below the pagoda.
