Muktinath is a sacred place both for Hindus and Buddhists located in Muktinath Valley at an altitude of 3,800m at the foot of the Thorong La mountain pass (part of the Himalayas), Mustang, Nepal.
The Hindus call the sacred place Mukti Kshetra, which literally means the “place of salvation”. It is also one of the 51 Sakthi peetams. The Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa, which in Tibetan means ‘Hundred Waters’. For Tibetan Buddhists Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa is a very important place of Dakinis, goddesses known as Sky Dancers and one of the 24 Tantric places.
