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. You start this trekking from Jomsom following the route of Upper Mustang trail. After you get to Lomanthang you acclimatize there for a day. Then you proceed to north east. From Lomanthang it takes three days to arrive Damodar Kunda. From this sacred lake you see the Tibetan plateau & Damodar Himal to the north and the Annapurna Himalayan massive to the south. Damodar Himal is a mountain range. It Includes Muktinath Himal (6,706m), Bhrikuti Peak (6,364m), Chuungian Chanma Himal 6165m, Mustang Himal 66234m, Arniko Chuli 6034m and other mountain peaks.
