Mustang Damodar Kunda Trekking

Damodar Kunda trekking is one of the holiest lakes of all Hindus as well as Buddhists. The word kunda represents lake. Damodar Kunda is located in Mustang district at mid western Nepal. This area is very close to Nepal Tibet border. Lying at an altitude of 4890 meters, Damodar Kunda carries wonderful natural beauty. The Gandaki River, a major Himalayan river originates from this holy lake. The most of the part of Damodar Kunda trekking lies in rain shadow area. So here you experience unique barren landscape having low vegetation. While trekking you encounter coldness with sandy wind.
