Muktinath had always been a holy place for not only Hindu but for other religion like Buddhist also. It was my perception that most Hindus visited this place but I was quite amazed to see people from other religion also visiting there. a few people were there for a spiritual reason and few were for other adventures. Few people were there for traveling purposes

I got a chance to visit Muktinath with Swamiji, that was a really awesome journey which I will always have in my life. Starting from Bus hiring from Gorakhpur we went to Muktinath via Kathmandu and Pokhara. We had a lot of fun activity on our journey, which made our journey full of fun.
We were almost 40-50 members, we also had a kitchen staff with us, whose duty was to prepare food as per our menu. His work was awesome. he prepared awesome foods for us. We halted at many places to enjoy the beauty of Nepal. As its maximum part is a hilly area, so you will get many moments to capture mountain valley beauty. Once we reached Muktinath, we were enlightened with joy.we halted there in the night and next morning We made darshan of Muktinath. We went to a few beautiful places which were amazing. After a few pics, we packed our luggage in the hotel and came back to Gorakhpur.
