Muktinath is not only popular for trekking, it is an equally sacred & important pilgrimage place both for Hindus and Buddhists. Muktinath is the single word of two separate words Mukti & Nath. Mukti means Salvation and Nath means god and Nirvana so it holds great significance for spiritual people. Muktinath (the provider of salvation) has been one such holy site, where thousands of devotees flock for attaining the much sought-after moksha (freedom) from the cycle of birth and rebirth. It is an ardent wish or a dream if you may say, of every Hindu to get Mukti-Nirvana from this cycle taking births over and over again. The Hindus believe that this world is "MAYA" (an illusion) and the earliest one gets out of it the better and a visit to Muktinath will help them achieve that goal. Since then it is called Muktinath. It is believed that one should visit this temple after completing the pilgrimage of four special religious sites, Chardhama Yatra of India; Muktinath must be visited once. Some people called this place a bank of Saligrama, the Hindus considered a saligrama to be an incarnation of the lord Vishnu. Indian people called this place "Muktidham" It means holy pilgrimage place of salvation. Most South Indian People compulsory to visit this place once in their lifetime. Similarly Buddhist calls this valley the Chumig Gyatsa which means 'Hundred Waters' in the Tibetan language. For Tibetan Buddhists, Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa is a very important place for Dakinis, goddesses known as Sky Dancers, and one of the 24 Tantric places. They understand the Murti to be a manifestation of Avalokitesvara.
