Damodar Kunda is a very important Hindu Pond which is located in the mustang district of the Dhaulagiri Zone in the Western Development Region of Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 17,716 ft above sea level in a very remote place of Mustang. As it is very difficult to travel, this tour is specially designed for people who are tight in schedule, old, or who are not physically fit but want to enjoy the view of the valley and peaks from above the sky.


The freed region is thought to start at Damodar Kunda, a well-known holy place in Upper Mustang. According to the Puranas, Kubera's sons bathed at Damodar Kunda to wash away their sins. When Lord Krishna was bound to a tree by his mother Yashoda in the Dwapar period the trees collapsed due to Lord Krishna's application of force. Kuber's son Nal Kuber was the one who chopped down the trees. Narthi cursed Nal Kuber, who had become rooted like a tree. Narthi cursed him to be the tree's root since he had been mocked, according to legend.

While Nal Kuber pleaded for deliverance, Narthi said that only the touch of Lord Krishna from the Dwapar period could liberate him from the curse. As a result, when Lord Krishna was pulling the rope tied by Yashoda Mata, Nal Kuber soared into the air, surrounded by demons in the shape of trees. Even though he was not under the curse, he prayed to God for the forgiveness of sins. Following this, Lord Krishna instructed Nal Kuber to travel to Damodar Kunda, where the dam of Kush hurled from Vrindavan used to fall. As a result, he went there to be rescued. Nal Kuber was rescued by swimming in the same tank. As a result of Krishna's rope being flung into this location from Vrindavan, it is known as Damodar, and the reservoir at this location is known as Damodar Kunda.
