Muktinath Temple is reached by a short flight to Jomsom and short drive of around 48 kms. Muktinath is a highly venerated sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists. For Hindus it is sared as this is one of the eight sacred places known as Svayam Vyakta Ksetras (the other seven being Srirangam, Srimushnam, Tirupati, Naimisharanya, Totadri, Pushkar and Badrinath), as well as one of the 108 Divya Desam, or holy places of worship of Lord Vishnu. Additionally, it is also one of the 51 Shakti Pitha goddess sites. Buddhists believe that once Guru Ringpoche also known as Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism meditated on this sacred place while on his way to Tibet. After completing prayers and worship at the Muktinath temple many pilgrims, both Hindu and Buddhist, visit Mebar Lha Gomba, the small monastery of `miraculous fire’, which is situated near the entrance gate of the temple. This monastery, dedicated to Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) and containing a statue of the Buddhist deity Chenrezig (Avalokitesvara), is famous for its continuously burning natural gas fire, which Hindus worship as Jwala Mai, the Goddess of Fire.

After visiting Muktinath this tour will take you to Mankamana Temple after flight and drive on the way to Kathmandu. Manakamana Temple is considered to be powerful deities and the goddess will fulfill every wish one can ask by getting there. The name Manakamana is derived from two words, Mana, meaning heart and Kamana, meaning wish. It is believed that the Goddess Bhagwati rewards those who make the pilgrimage to her shrine by granting their wishes, and she is especially popular with newlyweds who pray for sons. The temple can be rached by a short cable car ride or hiking up the 1300 m hill. The Manakamana temple overlooks the Trisuli and Marshyang-di river valleys, and offers breathtaking views of the Manaslu, Himalchuli and Annapurna mountains to the north.
