Mukeshpuri is a 9,200 feet elevated mountain in the Nathiagali Hills where one can reach by trekking either from Nathiagali trek or Dunga gali trek. It is 90 kilometers north of Islamabad, Pakistan, just above Dunga Gali in the Nathiagali area of Ayubia National Park. Much of it the mountain is covered with Western Himalayan sub-alpine conifer forests. According to some sources the name Mukeshpuri is derived from the Sanskrit words: Moksha (liberation) and Puri (city). Mukeshpuri is of special importance for the Hindus because of the Legends relating it to the Pandavas of the Mahabharata. There are the five Pandavas, the heroes of the Mahabharata, who are favorite objects of worship in the east and sometimes addressed as the Panj Pir (five saints).
