The plan for the 16th looks a bit ambitious. Are you going to go up by jeep ? You'll probably not have much time in Muktinath if you plan also to be driven back to Tatopani, and even less if you hope to get to Beni

Hello Kamaldatta,

Welcome to TripAdvisor forum for Nepal!

I agree with Alan's point about 16th. I would suggest something like:

14th POKHARA S/S

15th Proceed to JOMSOM by flight/helicopter, drive to Muktinath O/N.

16th proceed to back to Beni/tatopani o/n

17th retn Pokhara o/n

18th Onward KTM via Manokamana-o/n

19th Drive to Dhulikhe, sightseeing Bhaktapur on the way

20th Return KTM, sightseeing in KTM o/n

21st KTM TO return from Muzaffarpur

I think this plan will be more comfortable in my opinion.

Good Luck!

Hello again,

If you reach Gorakhpur by 11:30 AM then I see possibility to reach Tansen after visiting Lumbini on the way. I guess you won't spend long time in Lumbini. It will be pretty tight but doable.

Good Luck!

Hi again,

It's difficult to reach Muktinath and return back same day. If there are not obstacles and if everything goes smoothly you can reach Pokhara by late evening but if you are in a fixed plan then I recommend you to skip it. You can go to Muktinath on day one and try to return wherever you can. If you reach Pokhara that's fine and if not you can return to Pokhara by next mid day.

You can't drive to Muktinath by car as the road is not paved. 4WD is a option however it's so expensive. Once I asked for a 4WD cost to Muktinath and it was about NRS 65,000 which was quite a long ago. Now, it might be expensive than that.

Good Luck!
