  • My holy journey for "Shree MUKTINATH" on 4th july 1985 from Pokhara-kande-Chandrakot-Tirkethunga-Ooleri-Ghorepani-Lete-Dana-Tatopani-Tukche-Larjung-Jomsom-Kagbeni-Jharkot -Barkot-Lord MUKTINATH darshan on foot with Ajit Majhi,Nitai Konar,Dilip Mondal,Samir Chatterjee,Bibek Saha and two Nepali porter. It took 21days. This journey was one of the toughest and memorable journey for me than my Kailash-Mansarobar yatra 3rd batch in 1983, 300 kilometer on foot. "My lifelong desire fullfill by virtue of almighty".
