First, we visit Muktinath, one of the four major religious sites of Nepal. It is known also as an area of Shaligram (Ammonite) which is taken by Hindus as holy stone holding the soul of Lord Vishnu. Muktinath is one of 108 Vaishnava shrines which apart from religious significance hold immense potential for nature viewing. Against a backdrop of incredible starkness, you can gaze into the snow covered Annapurna Range to the south and Tibetan plateau towards the north. Ceremonies are held each year in Ram Nawami, Rishi Tarpani and Vijaya Dashami during which thousands of Hindus and Buddhist pilgrims pay homage to the Muktinath Holy Premises.
Then we visit Halesi Mahadev. It is believed that the Halesi Cave has been used as a dwelling for 6000 years. Lord Shiva hid there when hiding from the demon Bhasmasur. The location of this cave is between the holy rivers of Dudh Koshi and Sun Kosi. During Shivaratri, Rama Navami and Ganesh Chaturthi fairs and festivities are held in the region.
Muktinath and Halesi Mahadev Tour with ‘Adventure Himalayan Travels’ is a specially crafted 10-day tour package which initiates from Kathmandu and proceeds along Prithvi Highway through the scenic beauties of the Himalayas and terraced rice fields to Manakamana Temple where we will stop briefly to make our wishes to the wish fulfilling goddess before to continuing journey to Pokhara. After a one night stay, we will board a flight to Jomsom. A quick drive from Jomsom will take us to Muktinath - the place of salvation. After, we drive to Kathmandu and then Ghurmi to visit the Halesi Mahadev, a sacred site for both Buddhists and Hindus alike.
