Muktinath, located within the famous Annapurna Circuit Areas, is one of the most famous and respected shrines in the country. The beautiful aspect of the shrine is that followers of both Hinduism and Buddhism regard the shrine with utmost respect. Pilgrims come to pay their homage to the god all throughout the year.
With the harsh and arid landscape of the path that leads to the temple, the trek was previously limited to serious trekkers. However, a newly construed road (It's slated to complete later this year) is intending to change all that.
The Holy Area of Muktinath attracts people from all walks of life, from pilgrims to the adventure seekers. Pilgrims come to bow before the god, while the adventurous one more excited by the wonderful journey they have just had. But granted that everyone is looking for an experience of some sort-be it religious or otherwise-all of them return with the blessing and get what they came looking for in the foothills of the mountain: the adobe of the gods.
