We quickly freshened up and by then Jeep arrived and Driver Mahesh took us around Jamsom, frozen lake and a beautiful Morpha village. Since it was Off season not many tourists found and place was totally calm and heavenly.
It was new for us to see the stone structured houses with wooden roofing. We went around the village, had lunch in one of the house cum restaurant, shopped dried apple and walnuts.
Good dinner is served at Hotel Om and dining room is kept warm by non-electrical mechanism a boiler heater. Internet connectivity is very good in the hotel and we were too happy to share the amazing pics of our awesome day with family and friends in that remote place. Weather was getting too cold may be around minus 17 D by night.
2nd day was Mukthinath Darshan. After a great breakfast, we started around 9 am from Hotel by jeep towards Mukthinath. There are no words to praise our experience of passing through the Himalayan valley. We filled our heart and mind full of Himalayan view and took enough pics. We crossed Khinga, Jarkot, Kakbani villages, Kali Gandaki river and drove towards Mustang and arrived to Mukthinath base.
After 30 mts trek, we reached the holy temple Mukthinath. Our dream of seeing god Mukthinath has come true. The faith overrides all difficulties is true. We could take bath in ice cold holy water here. We had a very good darshan as there was less crowd due to minus temperature.
We purchased few saligrama on the way back to Jamsom. Also bought few woollen shawls from theweaver who was weaving on the sides of the road.
We reached back hotel around 6.30 pm. During dinner time, we met owner of the place Mr Triple, Owner of the Hotel and had good discussion on local culture. Our stay at Om’s home was great and gave us feeling of staying at home. Staffs at Om’s home were like family members and even during minimum temperature they were awake to serve food on demand and their service was top notch. Food was very tasty. We were amazed the way hotel is maintained in the remote place in par with City’s Five Star hotels.
Third day with life time memories, we started from Jamsom to Pokhara by early morning flight. Hotel Manager took us again by walk to Airport around 6.30 am.
We found people of Nepal are very cautious of their land, respect Himalayas and treat it like God. Women are respected, they go all alone freely. All the places we visited in Nepal are clean and neat and rest rooms are kept hygienic. This we felt may be because Nepalese treat their land a Gods place.
