Damodar Kunda Upper mustang. (22 Days)

AnnapurnaDamodar Kunda sacred lake lies in upper Upper mustang and eastern south of Lo-manthang.
Damodar Kunda was celebrated as the trek year of 2002. It is opened for all trekker & Pilgrimage foreigners. It is one of the most fascinating remote lakes, famous for pilgrimage and to view the panoramic beauty of holy lake. It does not fulfill your dream of seeing to Damodar Kunda but also make you to realize to be reached in the heavenly beautiful place. The Damodar Kund {lake} is re-known for Hindu religion, it is located at the shadow are of High Himalayas north of Annapurna range. The elevation of the Damodar Kund is 4890 meters; it has almost cold and windy climate. Especially it is used to make trip during the full moon of August every year, because every year there is used to celebrate a big festival where many national and international pilgrimages Hindu and Bhuddist visit full moon of August. To visit in Festival time gives an immense experience, the views are great from some viewpoints a bit higher than the lakes, just a short climb up some of the hills. We can see the Tibetan plateau & Damodar, Himal to the north and the Annapurna Himalayan massive to the south.


Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern where the languages, culture and traditions are alike to those of the Tibetan people. This area is consider as one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal. The whole area has an isolated and mystical feel to it, enchanting and inspiring visitors to this region.
The trek to Lo- Manthang is through high altitude desert country climbing in and out of the huge sided valley of the Kali Gandaki. In places the gorge which the Kali Gandaki River runs through is the deepest in the world. This region is full of some of Nepal’s oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages with quaint white washed houses.

Luri Gompa and Yara/Ghara village is lies East South of Lo-Manthang,Luri Gompa (Cave monastery) sits high above the crumbling landscape like an eagle's nest. It is some of the last cave monasteries in Lo and Tibet. No written record exists for the construction of Luri Gompa. Luri Gompa and some other monasteries are affiliated with the Kagyu sect (one of the sect of Buddhism). The style of painting suggests they were done by Nepalese (Newari) artists working for Tibetan patrons. The cave temple dates from the 13th - 14th century. The central chamber of the Gompa is carved out of the rock creating a domed ceiling on which are painted a series of Mahasiddha, Sakyamuni Buddha and Chenrezig figures etc, which are the true masterpieces. Lining the walls are series of 14th century paintings, which depict India Mahasiddahs. Some are real individual and other mythical.
