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.

Chennai, India

I first reached out to Lumle Holidays for a trip to Muktinath. The response was immediate and with clear itinerary and what is covered and what is not. It was a 4-day tour.

On the day we landed, we were received by the operations manager and taken to the Hotel and he explained us the whole tour. Small changes were accepted and immediately arranged. Our tour to Muktinath by helicopter was excellent. Everything was arranged professionally, punctually and with great care. It was a great value for money tour and it was an unforgettable experience to Nepal.

We had taken a Mukthinath Tour organised by Lumle Holidays. We had started the tour from Khatmandu . we were given a excellent guide Mr. Mahdav. We were given a very homely treatment, excellent accommodation and royal treatment. 

The tour was customized for our needs. We never felt we were away from home. All our needs were taken care off and we had a wonderful Dharshan at Mukthinath besides, all other temples in Pokhara and Kathamandu too. We would recommend these tour operators very highly.

I and my wife had undertaken a 10N/11D tour to Nepal with the Lumle Holidays. The tour encircles the places like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Lumbini,Daman, Nagarkot. The whole tour was organised by Lumle Holidays. I should say that I am more than satisfied with the arrangements made by Lumle Holidays. Moreover the reciprocation and behaviour of MR Sharma and Mr Maharjan was worth mentioning. They were always replying fast to my emails and other communication. 

The hotels provided was among the best as per my budget. The travel arrangements were also very good( not to forget about Mr Tika, who was the friend, philospher, guide and driver for the entire tour). On a n overall basis I am pretty well satisfied and would look forward to contact them in all the future Nepal tours.

It has been a real pleasure dealing with Lumle Holidays. Initially we were a bit skeptical dealing with Nepal tour operator remotely. However, as responses and details were received, our confidence grew. Our main intent was pilgrimage to this holy place starting from Kathmandu.

All aspects of the tour program were clearly documented and all arrangements done including some of our special requests with reasonable charges. Travels, accommodation, entry tickets, sight-seeing and food arrangements/ suggestions were handled very well. Not only our main intent - Muktinath darshan, but also other attractions at Pokhara, Kathmandu and Manakamna enroute were covered - beyond our expectation. It was tailor made to a 7-day 6-night program (though normal standard seems 6D/5N). Despite some scares about possible weather / flight disruptions, we had a very good journey and darshan & sight seeing all through.

Ask them all questions what to carry and what not, and all tips about restaurants shopping etc,, you get response soon.

Overall it was time and money well spent with a professional operator.

The various guides were very knowledgeable & friendly, including Mr. Sharma himself and Mr. Maharjan & driver cum guide Teeka-ji. Professional dealing, homely comfort, good decent accommodation and transport.




Me and my family, total four member were planing to have a darshan of Muktinath and this makes possible by Lumle Holidays. It was well organised, well co-ordinated and special appreciation to Mr. Nipendra Maharjan for promptly calling and caring about our journey. Weather was really favorable on us and we saw the closest snowcapped mountain from Jomsom like standing infront of us.

On the whole it was a good trip and willing to visit Nepal again with these people. I do recommend to all to go with this company.
