Muktinath is cherished by all srivaishnavites as a life time adventure. No sooner one moves from Pokhara, than the divinity permeates the visitor. The details can also be viewed on www.myswamyjee.in under pilgrimage menu.

Srikrishna Prapnnachari’s Travelogue to Muktinarayan
.Visit to the sacred abode of lord Muktinath (Mukti Narayan) was inspired by SriGovindrajan Swamy, a revered priest of SriRang Mandir, Vrindavan. This has been inmy family tradition also and my father had visited the sacred divine abode by trekkingabout one hundred km from Pokahara itself.This is situated in Annapurna range of mountains in Nepal. Actually Pokhara is thegateway to proceed towards Muktinath. By whatever mode of transport one adopts,Pokhara is the first destination, whether one comes from Kathmandu side or Gorakhpur(India) side. One can take luxury buses from Delhi for either Kathmandu or Sunauli(India –Nepal border town while coming from Gorakshpur side). Besides taking a shorttime flight from Pokhara to Jomsom, one can take a bus from Pokhara to Beni which isabout 70 km from Pokhara. From Beni fourteen seater jeeps are available for Jomsomwhich takes about 10 hours travel time using the gravel road. At Jomsom one has tocross Kali Gandaki by the footbridge (as there is no vehicular bridge), and on the otherside of the Gandaki river again similar jeeps are available for Muktinath which take about2 hours to reach Ranipaua (traversing on gravel road through rugged mountaineousterrain), the foothill settlement about one km down the Muktinath peak. Either one cantrek through broken grounds, about 700 steps up, from here or take a motorbike to bedropped at the temple gate of Lord Muktinarayan.
1. Start : Delhi, May 29, 2009
Took train from old Delhi railway junction for Gorakhpur. Amritsar Katihar express (alsocalled Amrapali) reached Delhi Junction four hours late and left Delhi station at 7:30 pminstead of 3:30 pm. While reaching Gorakhpur the train became late by six hours and Icould get down at platform at 1:45 pm, May 30, 2009 against the schedule time of 5:50am.
2. May 30, 2009 Gorakhpur
Took bus from Gorakhpur to Sunauli (Indian boarder town) and reached there at about 6pm. Crossed the border line, and on Nepal side a formal check of the baggage was doneby the Nepalese officials. Got a night bus from there to Pokhara. Sometimes the busesare not available right at Sunauli border and one has to go to Bhairwan, a couple of kminside Nepal. The bus left Sunauli at about 6:30 pm via Butwal and reached Pokhara inthe morning at 7 am, May 31, 2009.While buying bust ticket (
INR 250; Indian currency is popularly called IC, and Nepalese currency called NC; 100 IC = 160 NC; Hundred rupees Indian currency is acceptable in Nepal and other larger denominations are rarely accepted in routine shopping transaction 
) at Sunaulithe travel agent also booked a single accommodation room at Pokhara (Dharmma Inn)

for a tariff of Rs 400 (INR), and I had to pay INR 200, half money as advance at Sunauli.The Dharmma Inn representative had come to receive me at bus stand and took me tothe hotel by a Maruti car (hotel vehicle) as the transport was complimentary in the hoteltariff.
3. May 31, 2009 Pokhara
After I settled down in the hotel room, and finished my breakfast, the hotel representativetook me at 10 am to Nepal Tourist Registration office at Pokhara. I had to carry 2passport size photos, and after filling a prescribed form and submitting the fee of NC300, I got the permit for trekking . The permit is said to be valid for 3 months althoughnothing is mentioned in this regard on the permit paper. I had to pay additional NC 100to the hotel representative for his assistance in taking me to the office and taking back tothe hotel.Before leaving to obtain the trekking permit, the payment for the air ticket of Yeti air lineswas made in cash at the Dharmma Inn help desk counter itself. Up and down ticket forPokhara – Jomsom – Pokhara was booked on telephone on calling YetiairlinesKathmandu office number (977 – 14465888) from India on May 27, 2009. For payment atime limit of 12 noon, May 31, 2009 was prescribed by the airline. The relevant PNR ofbooking was noted down from the airline while booking the seat from India. Accordinglywhen I conveyed the PNR of booking, the hotel representative helped in buying theticket ( 2 x 3790 NC or its equivalent IC about 4700) within the time limit of the payment.
