Muktinath is the holy place for both Hindus and Buddhists and it is situated at an altitude of 3710m which comes under Mustang district, Nepal. The Hindus followers call it Mukti Ksheta which means the "place of salvation" and Buddhist followers call it Chumig Gyatsa which means "Hundred Waters".

Muktinath has a great importance for Buddhists because Chumig Gyatsa is one of the 24 Tantric places. The Muktinath shrine is also known as one of the eight most sacred shrines for Hindu Vashanavites. The temple is very small. It is also one of the most ancient Hindu temples of God Vishnu. People say that Muktinath temple was raised on its own. It is said that, those who are willing to undergo physical discomfort and rigor can go to Muktinath but above all one should have the Grace of the Lord also to visit it. It is bit difficult to travel because of tough weather conditions.

The most suitable time to visit Muktinath is from the month of March to June, because other months must be difficult to travel. The views of Himalayas are great from Muktinath.
