Shiva Dhara Trek

Shiva Dhara is one of the most famous pilgrimage sites situated at the base of Mt. Makalu in eastern Nepal,   with  an altitude of 5000m  in  Makalu Rural municipality. The site is lying inside the Makalu Barun National Park along the route to Mt. Makalu Base Camp. This waterfall is considered as the most sacred tap of Lord Shiva. There is a large stone cliff that has a hole in its face and through which a  500 feet tall waterfall cascades.

Every year, pilgrims trek to the site to bathe in the holy waters on a full moon. Shiva Dhara is covered in snow throughout most of the year. According to ancient tales, it was Lord Shiva and Parbati’s playground, where they played and bathed in Spring. Today, it’s where pilgrims reach heaven and return with a sacred heart. 

But to get to this place one has to climb an extremely dangerous cliff for three to four hours with the help of a local porter guide. For more information please also visit a very good youtube video.
