Damodar Kunda (lake) is famous for Hindu religion. It is situated high up in a rain- shadow area of the Himalayas, north of the famous Annapurna range. The elevation of the Damodar Kunda is 4890 meters. It is a cold and windy place, but also very beautiful.
Usually this area is open for visitors from April to September, but the best time to visit this area is during the full moon of August every year, when you can enjoy a big festival. Many Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims will also be there to celebrate the full moon.
From Damodar Kund, the views are spectacular, a bit higher than the lakes, just a short climb up some of the hills. From here you can see the Tibetan plateau & Damodar Himal to the north and the massive Annapurna Himalayas to the south.
The Damodar lakes are located three days walk North- east of the main Mustang trekking route & very close to the Tibetan border. Damodar Kunda lies in the upper Mustang region between Kagbeni and Muktinath. There are 65 peaks in this Himal range including Muktinath Himal (6,706m), and Bhrikuti Peak (6,364m).
