Muktinath Darshan Tours is one of the famous Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrimage tour in Nepal which takes you to the famous temple of Muktinath. Muktinath is situated in the district of Mustang in the north central part of Nepal, at an altitude of about 3710 meters from the sea level at a distance of 110 kilometers north of Pokhara. The Pagoda style of the temple signifies its reverence by Hindus as well as Buddhists. Hindus fondly refer to this place as Mukti chhetra, which means ‘Place of salvation’. Similarly Buddhist calls this valley the Chumig Gyatsa (Place of 108 waterspouts). It is believed that Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) 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 Sanskrit name of this temple is synthesis of two words; “Mukti” meaning Salvation and “Nath” meaning Master/God/Provider. Muktinath (Provider of salvation) has been one such holy site, where thousands of devotees flock for attaining the much sought after Mokshya (Freedom) from the cycle of birth and rebirth. Hindus believes that this world is “MAYA” (an illusion) and its better one get outs of it and a visit to Muktinath will help them achieve that goal.
