At the same time, one can witness magnificent mountain panoramas.

We commence our Muktinath Jeep Tour from Kathmandu if you are in Kathmandu and it also can be done from Pokhara. If you like to begin the Muktinath Road Trip from Kathmandu, you have to either take a short flight (35 minutes) or a 6-7 hours drive to Pokhara. Or you can directly take a jeep from Kathmandu to Muktinath passing through Pokhara, Beni, and Jomsom. If you are already in Pokhara and want to experience the incredible Mustang Jeep Tour by Road, you can book the jeep and go for Muktinath Darsan. The jeep you hire can be shared by 7 people. Or optionally, you can take your private jeep which will be more convenient and luxurious for you.

Here, we plan a Muktinath Jeep Tour from Kathmandu. We spend two nights in Pokhara, and one night in Jomsom. Staying at Jomsom, we take a one-hour drive to the holy Muktinath Temple. This tour or jeep ride is also known as Holy Muktinath Darsan. The day we drive to Muktinath temple will completely be a spiritual journey. Here, we offer a holy prayer to Lord Vishnu, enjoy the incredible surroundings, and the mountain peaks around, and come back to Jomsom for an overnight stay.

The final section of the tour takes us back to Pokhara where you can, further,  rejoice in various activities including paragliding and boating. Pokhara city tour is very popular among the tourists which takes them to various religious and natural heritages like Gupteswor Cave, Barahi Temple, Talbarahi Temple, Phewa Lake, and Davi’s  Fall.
