Once upon a time, the lake turned blood red, or so the legend goes. A Buddhist priest performed some rituals, and it reverted to its original color.
At an elevation of 3,710 meters at the base of the Thorong La mountain pass in the Mustang district of Nepal, the “eternal flame” burns brightly at the Jwala Ji shrine in the village of Muktinath.
