At about 11 am we started moving towards the starting point of Mukshpuri trek. Its a 4 kilometer track starting from Shangrila Hotel Nathiagali; passing through thick pines forests it goes to 2800 meters high feet mushkpuri top. For details of our nathiagali stay, please see my other post A Trip to Nathiagali in December.
It is a very beautiful trek. There are two paths to reach at mukshpuri top, one from the nathiagali, and other from the dunga gali. Last year I with my friends had completed this trek from dunga gali side. This time we are doing it from nathiagali side. Main advantage you get on nathiagali side is that on the way to mukshpuri top there is Ayubia National Park along with a mini zoo build for the nathiagali leopards, it is at about the middle of the trek. Also trek is easier than the dunga gali side. It took about 2 hours to reach the top. Here we are at Mukshpuri Top. It has a very wide view. Enjoy the pictures:
