Myagdi: Muktinath temple located in the remote hill district of Mustang as a popular hub for tourists and inland visitors is open once again to welcome the tourists.
The holy temple of Muktinath and its surrounding place is revered by both Hindu and Buddhist devotees as this holy place has a spiritual aura to lure most of these Hindu and domestic pilgrims
A meeting of the Covid-19 Crisis Management Centre and the Security Committee held at the Mustang District Administration Office on September 21 had decided to reopen the temple so that more visitors can come and go from here as this holy place was closed since last April on account of the spreading spree of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
The security and Covid-19 crisis management centre of Mustang has however cautioned that admission to the Muktinath temple premises requires a PCR/antigen test report or the Covid-19 vaccination certificate for the Nepali nationals and a seven-day valid RT-PCR report for foreigners.
Following the reopening of this holy temple, there has been a rapid rise in the number of visitors. The Muktinath temple is located at an altitude of 3,710 metres and has been one of the most favoured tourist destinations in Nepal.
