Introduction:

There are four religious centers of Hindus in Nepal. They are Muktikshetra, Rurukshetra, Barahakshetra and Pashupatikshetra. Two of them, Muktikshetra and Rurukshetra are located on the Kali Gandaki River. Ruru Region lies in the western Nepal. About 96 km to the north of Lumbini and 30 km to the northwest of Tansen lies Rurukshetra, at the confluence of the Kali Gandaki and the Ridi rivers. Ruru is on the tarred road linking Tansen with Tamghas. Ruru region covers Ruru, Thanapani and Aslewa VDCs of Gulmi district, Argali VDC of Palpa district and Karikot of Chanjebhanjyang VDC of Syangja district. Ruru, commonly known as Ridi, was named after a mythological girl named Ruru. She was born to a fairy named Pramlocha and brought up by a doe. Ruru, through her penance, pleased Lord Vishnu. When Lord Vishnu appeared before her and asked her to beg of him for a boon, she asked him to stay there forever. So, Lord Vishnu stayed there as Hrishikeshav. There are two separate temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Ruru Kanya. A four armed stone- image is seen inside the Hrishikeshav Temple. Other places worth visiting are Bhrigutungeshwor Mahadev, cave, Achammeshwor, Ram temple at Rudrabeni etc.

We approached Lumle for organising overland trip to Muktinath from Kathmandu and back. Operations Manager Nipendra Maharjan was the one who helped us plan our trip. He accompanied us all through the trip. We engaged a Mahindra Scorpio for our trip. Excellent and caring service has been Nipendra's hallmark. Along with the driver Sarath, both were outstanding. Ineffable to mention about their excellent conduct and service. I would strongly recommend Lumle if you are planning trip to Muktinath by overland tour. Nipendra is a great ambassador for Lumle.  Would recommend hiring an alternate vehicle other than Scorpio if you are looking at having more leg room and comfort.

Itinenary was prepared in nice manner considering the road conditions, traffic and other factors. Tour guide Nipendra assisted throughout the trip with more caring. Hotel and food arrangements were done nicely. Guided to collect the Saligrama stones from Kali Gandaki river that is excellent time to have in the tour. Nipendra assisted in the shopping also to buy some souvenirs and trekking items. When the return flight had issue due to Kathmandu runway issue stayed with me to make sure managed to get the flight and depart safely. Great tour operators and extraordinary guidance from Nipendra. Recommed to use LUMLE Holidays for Muktinath Tours for their caring service

We 5 friends went to Kathmandu Pokhara Muktinath trip from 9 April to 15 April. We chose Lumle Travel for our trip. We had started planning from February and Mr Nipendra of Lumle was involved with planning our trip. He always replied our e-mail and made our itinerary. When we reached Kathmandu airport he was there to receive us (we all are fifty plus ladies). We made plan to visit Patan and Pasupatinath temple after reaching Kathmandu on the same day. Mr Nripendra was kind enough to take us to Patan and Pasupati. He was with us all along on 9 April evening though our visit to Pasupatinath and sightseeing was starting on 10 April. Our Pokhara and Muktinath Darshan was also very pleasant .Hotel at Pokhara and Muktinath was also very good especially Om's home at Jomsom. Mr Hari of Om's home accompanied us to Muktinath. He is very caring and funny boy who took our luggage while we ladies were climbing. He was with us constantly with us at Muktinath looking after our luggage while we were changing after bathing and having Darshan at Muktinath Mandir. The driver who was all along with us Mr Kamal was also very nice n good never getting irritated or upset. Our nice and pleasant stay was due to Mr Nipendra of Lumle Travel. He was always available on phone, if we had any query. Thank you Mr Nipendra for such a wonderful n pleasant stay
