Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa is one of the most important pilgrimage sites of Nepal for both Buddhists and Hindus. It is a great example to our world of a sacred place shared in harmony by devotees of two world religions.

The traditional caretakers of the sacred place are the nuns of the lineage of Lama Wangyal. Their international support is channeled via the MFI. For more information, please see our donation page.
For other nunneries nearby, please see here. This page includes a link to a very nice movie about Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa and the nuns of the lineage of Shangpa Rinpoche.

The renovation of Narsingh Gompa and the Central Temple are both completed.

In 2021 Muktinath will be open starting January 5th. The Mukinath nuns took special precautions to be able to receive the pilgrims.
