  • If anyone wants to experience the eternal peace and spiritual feelings, this is the perfect pilgrimage. This is the perfect example of cultural harmony between Buddhism and Hinduism. There are several nuns living inside the premises of this holy site. This place is also significantly important in terms of Geology due to the presence of a flame right from the water.
  • It was my fantastic experience on motor bike ride. It is a precious place to be. Most visit to everyone.
  • Its a only heaven on earth as my experience.. Waterfalls, snow, caves, volcano traces, monasteries, rivers, mountains, lake, gumba & temple are the complete adventure package. You all must visit once..
  • Beautiful to explore the inside after a hard day of trekking. When we visited there was a bunch of locals trying to lift a rock - which was apparently a spirit - for good fortune! It was too heavy for all of us. Maybe you can do it?
  • This place has very important value with both socially & naturally.I suggest to go to temple by walking from Mustang main hotel centre.I view gorgeous & elegant nature View of many mountains.Mountains are seems very near while walking.Best destination for unforgettable enjoyment of natural & cultural enjoyment.This place is too peace & silent.It seems like the heaven of the Earth because temple is very famous & lies in very unique natural place.
