What can be said about Muktinath Temple which has already not been stated or written.This is an out of the world place. more »
I was amazed that this site is still profoundly evocative after 24 years. This in spite of the commercialization down the road with many would be spiffy hotels and shops. The key thing to do is open mind and heart to the powerful mystical presence of this pilgrimage site.
A beautiful temple located at a height of 13500 feet!Need to trek up from Muktinath town. Very serene and peaceful. Went during rainy season and it was very cold.
