This temple also lies in the west-north of Pokhara and holds great importance to the Hindu and Buddhist people of Nepal. While Hindus believe that a bath Muktinath can bless you with any wishes, Buddhist followers regard this place as the resting point of their Gurus before traveling to Tibet.

Muktinath lies in a semi-deserted land of the Mustang district. The colorful hues of the plants and the dull backdrop of the large hills with mountains shining far away make the most beautiful landscape you can witness. There are waterfalls, forests, and mountains at the same viewpoint making Muktinath the favourite 2 days itinerary in Nepal.
