Thrilling adventurous offbeat Mukteshwar
This is Jeet Rajput, back with the review of a famous place in Nainital- The Mukteshwar.
Mukteshwar is about 60 Km away from Nainital. It's on some height surrounded by beautiful mountains. Nainital to Mukteshwar track feels like you are travelling on a track just in the middle of a jungle. It's a very good experience tracking towards Mukteshwar, between the mountains.
If you are suffering from motion sickness I. E. Vomiting, stomach ache etc. Then you must carry necessary medicines with you. After reaching the Mukteshwar gate, you have two options- either go directly to the temple which is at a walking distance of 5-7 minutes. Or, if you love trekking as much as I do, then you should definitely choose to first track downwards to the Mukteshwar Peak at the left, which is at a distance of 400m from entrance gate and can track back to the Mukteshwar Temple via back side road.
After getting on the Mukteshwar Peak, the first word which will bounce out of your mouth would be "OMG! ". There you'll find many rocks and lush green valleys which are perfect for your valuable photo sessions. But take proper care of the extreme height. You can do adventurous things there like rock climbing, flying fox, rappelling, etc. And most importantly, you can do bargaining with the crew members on these things.
If you are feeling hungry, you can have some snacks at Maggie Point and can do breakfast there. After getting free from there, you can track back to the temple which is about 1Km away. It will take you about 15-20 minutes to reach there. Mukteshwar temple is situated at a height, you can have a great view of the beautiful scenery from there. The ambience there is very calm and peaceful which gives peace to your mind and relieves all the stress. The Mukteshwar Peak also seems amazingly beautiful from here. It's an offbeat place having relatively less rush and hence, you can give time to yourself. After spending a good time there, you can come back to the main gate.
