November 7, 2008 Friday Muktinath Day 18

It’s 1:05 p.m. We’re sitting in the street level dining room at Hotel Nightingale in Muktinath. The group of Europeans we met in Kagbeni just arrived by horse back!

The walk was a little harder today (more uphill) but much more interesting. We walked east from Kagbeni along the Thong Khola (Thong River) through Klingar (very small) and Jharkot (a little larger) where we stopped for a tea break. We went uphill, then flat and then more uphill to Muktinath. It took us about 4 ½ hours to get here including tea break.

We are having lunch now (Spring rolls and momos), then we’ll shower and / or wash and go to the Temple. Bruce is a little tired and a little light headed, but feeling better now that we are here. Our last destination on trek!

We went to the Temple. Muktinath is a holy place for both Hindus and Buddhists. All the natural elements are contained here: earth, air (lots of wind!!), water (natural springs) and fire (natural gas). If you'd like some more information the Official web site is:
