Muktinath Temple

The famous Muktinath Temple, a holy place of pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists in Mustang, is open from today. A meeting of the COVID-19 Crisis Management Center and the Security Committee held at the District Administration Office, Mustang on September 21 had decided to open the Muktinath Temple. The temple has remained closed since last April.

Chief District Officer Srinath Poudel, who is also the chairperson of the Muktinath Development Committee, shared that worshipping at the Muktinath temple has been opened for the pilgrims and devotees from outside the district.

However, admission to the Muktinath temple requires a PCR, antigen test report, or corona vaccination for the Nepali nationals and a seven-day valid RT-PCR report for foreigners.

After the opening of Muktinath and the tourist spot, the number of people going to Mustang by road and air has increased. Fifteen people have lost their lives in Mustang, including seven in Ranipauwa near Muktinath temple, due to Coronavirus.

Located at an altitude of 3,710 meters above sea level, Muktinath is considered a common pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists.
