Route from Muktinath to Poonhill
I am currently in Muktinah, and I need to be in Pokhara on Wednesday. What is the best way to fill in my final days? I want to go to poon hill but I don’t know how to do it. What steps can I make and how can I move from one place to another (bus would be great)?
How adventurous is the travel from Pokhara to Muktinath?
Planning to travel next year April by jeep from Pokhara to Muktinath. It would be over 2 / 3 days with a night in Marpha and one night Kagbeni. Then driving back to Tatopani. A family trip with two 12 year olds. Anyone has any thoughts on this? How adventurous is the travel? From what I understand it takes 4 hrs from pokhara to tatopani where we stop for lunch then 2 hrs to marpha. About 2 hrs to kagbeni and half hr from kagbeni to muktinath. Then 5 hrs down to tatopani from where we will start our trek into the sanctuary.
