Damodar Kunda is the holy lake situated in the Upper Mustang region of Nepal also known as the rain shadow area of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. It is one of the most popular holy destinations for all Hindus. Hindu mythological belief describes Damodar Kunda as the holiest lake that makes you free from all sins and bad karma that ultimately leads you to Mokshya. According to Hindu religious book “Puran” Lord Krishna suggested to the sons of Kuber to take a holy bath in Damodar kunda to be free from sins and wrong doing of their previous birth. Immediately after the bath they are freed from the sin. The holy lake is situated at 5110m in the remote Himalayan district of Mustang. The lake is also popular as the origin of Gandaki river and holy fossils known as Saligram.
