with you that Muktinath is very popular destination. I am feeling very happy to learn from you that only 2-4 Indian 2WD vehicles have visited the terrain till now as stated in the largest automobile forum.

As I did not visit Lo Manthang and the Kora La, I was reading this part in details. I think it's really helpful for everyone who will plan for Mustang Valley trip in future.

Muktinath is a popular destination on the religious pilgrimage circuit. After our trip i found of 2 others who have driven to Muktinath in 2wds in 2016.
However as I mentioned earlier, im yet to know of anyone who has driven to Lo Manthang and the Kora La border in an Indian vehicle prior to us. Let me know if u find anyone who has.

Well , everything wrt adulation , praise, jawdropping sentiments and what not has already been covered and conveyed by much more accomplished folks with more travel stories beneath their hoods.

All i can say is that this was an absolute pleasure to go through the TL , to feel the raw, untamed desire in actually charting a path , where paths dont exist. Super , my respects and congratulations

This is opening up a new chapter in the wanderlust stricken community of Tbhp-ians , who were earlier getting Leh'd , now to look at a different more challenging and enriching experience , apart from the Leh, Spiti circuit.

Thank you both @jaysmokesandleaves and @genesis for taking this journey, and thank you for posting this and allowing us to virtually feel the thrill of travelling with you. Inspiring!!!

@jaysmokesleaves

What a trip! I have been reading all the comments and ovbiously trip log too. So, below is the first lot of my set of queries:

1. Doable on a Continental GT? Doable on a Domi?
2. Can I do it solo? If yes, advisable?
3. Details about permits. Cost, procedure, documents, where to get?
4. Number of days ex-delhi considering my last longest run was 1150km on a Domi from Muzaffarpur to Delhi on day 13 of my East-West Bhutan Circuit.


Thanks in advance.

Just one word for the travelogue, Wow!

Did you get to see the Dhaulagiri and Annapura summits from road anywhere in the journey?
I have heard that Dhaulagiri is visible from Gorakhpur on a clear day.
