Literally ‘the one that redeems from worldly bonds,’ Damodar Kunda is located at the altitude of 22,000 feet atop Mukti Kshetra amidst enchanting, sky-high Mountains in the remote Himalayan district of Mustang in western Nepal. In the vicinity of lake lie two other kundas-Sweta Kunda and Rakta Kunda. Human beings are believed to experience sacramental divinity and attain atonement from all the sins after dipping down on to the lake.

An interesting mythical story is associated with this Himalayan Lake. Once, due to the intoxicative arrogance of wealth and youth, Nalakubar and Manigreev accompanied by voluptuous woman treated the Devarshi Narada with disrespect. Angered by their disrespectful behavior, the Devarshi cursed them to be the immovable trees in Gokul. Lord Damodar, in the incarnation of Lord Krishna, rescued them from their sorrowful life and dictated them to take the holy bath in Damodar Kunda in Himalayas which alone, Lord said, would restore their previous heavenly bodies. Thus, as the grandeur of this Himalayan lake came down to the human beings through lord Damodar, the lake is believed to have acquired its present name.

This mystical place is noted also for the abundant availability of the holy idols of Shalagram and large meadow of Kusha around, which make this place captivating even for the secular sightseers.
