Leaving the snowy peaks behind, we head for the thirsty valley of the Mustang to the west. We will keep marching with the sight of standing tall Dhaulagiri Mountain Range in the far horizon.
Hiking upwards for the icy altitude will be tiresome but the steps that we take can be worthy as this is rewarded by the amazing views from the top. The climb down can be made as carefully as the ascent. Initially the path comprises of loose gravel but later it converts into the rocky solid part which makes it easier to walk though.
The important Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage site of Muktinath will be reached in the late afternoon. Behind a very long surrounding wall and thousands of prayer flags is an oasis of springs, banyan and peepul trees with a Vishnu temple and a Buddhist shrine: testament to the mutual religious harmony in Nepal.
