Muktinath Dham pilgrimage is one of the holiest and the most highly revered places of worship for lord Vishnu’s incarnation of ‘god of justice’. Located within the surreal beauty on the base of the Thorong La Mountain Pass within the valley of Mustang in Nepal it is one of the holiest destinations for Vaishnavites where they come to take a holy bath under the muktidhara or water spouts that are situated in the temple’s courtyard.

The pilgrimage site is very difficult to reach and one of the most convenient and simpler ways completing the Yatra is via a helicopter journey.
