Aum Namah Shivaya!


Holy Mt. Kailash is considered as an important pilgrimage destination as well as a
power point where it is possible to gain inspiration and energy to transform oneself
from this physical to a higher spiritual level. The custom of circumambulating mount
Kailash is believed to purify the soul and cultivate in each pilgrim the ability to perceive
the divinity. The experience is elevating and inspiring, and many pilgrims return to
their homes with feelings of exaltation and spiritual inspiration.

Karnali Excursions was one of the first tour agencies in Nepal to offer pilgrimages to
Shree Kailash in 1993, when China opened its doors to tourism. Ever since, we have
been providing a strong, well-organized and spiritually fulfilling experience for those
who join with us for this holy piligrimage of a lifetime.

Muktinath
Muktinath, the place of salvation, is one of the 108 Divya Vishnu Dhams in the world.
It is situated at the elevation of 3800 meter on the lap of Thorang peak in Annapurna
Mountain range. Mukti Kshetra and Thiru Saligrama, are the other names of Muktinath.
As mention in Gandaki Mahatmya of Vishnu Purana, Lord Vishnu is considered reclining
in the Himalayas with his head placed towards the Damodar Kunda (the Saligram Lake)
and the chest being located at Muktinath. So it is a very important pilgrimage site for
the Hindu followers.

Karnali Excursion Kailash Yatra 2018

There are 108 holy water


spouts considered to be fed
by different holy sources
dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

The main sanctum of


Muktinath Temple houses
the idols of Vishnu, Sridevi,
Bhu Devi and Garuda.
Buddhists believe the image
of Vishnu placed in the
Muktinath temple, is one
of the manifestations of
Avalokiteawara.

Narsingh Gompa, Jwala Mai (perpetual natural eternal flame) and small shrine of
Bhagwan Nilkantha Swamy are other not-to-miss attractions of the Muktinath. Narsingh
Gompa is the sacred site for Buddhist followers. Jwala Mai is the melting point of the
five super natural elements (Pancha Mahabhut: Prithvi, Jal, Vayu, Tej and Aakas). The
founder of Swamynarayan sect, Bhagwan Nilkantha Swamy also visited this place and
sanctified by meditating here. It is believed that Guru Rimpoche (Padmashambhav),
also meditated at Muktinath and sanctified this place while he was on his way to
Tibet. Thus, Muktinath is considered a very important pilgrimage site for both, Hindu
followers and Buddhist believers.

Kagbeni, the confluence point of Kaligandaki and Muktinath Rivers, is believed to


be another important holy site for Hindus in the antiquity of Muktinath area. Hindu
peoples perform ablution (Tarpan) in the name of departed souls).
