Overview

The Jomsom Muktinath Trek – 14 Days…A holy pilgrimage that blends into adventure as we make our peace with the gods…

A tryst with nature, religion, landscapes & trails that lead you into the fascination of the wild…at your pace….

Jomsom Muktinath Trek is one of the most exciting hiking activities in the Annapurna region where we climb up to the height of 3,800 meters and also it is a part of the Annapurna Round Trek. The trek is not perfect for pilgrims only but also for those looking for adventurous trekking in the Himalayas with natural and cultural beauty. Magnificent views of mountains can be seen while passing through dazzling landscapes. Our 14 Days Jomsom Muktinath trekking trail passes through the world’s deepest Kali Gandaki gorge with desert areas like the nearby Tibetan plateau.

Our Jomson Muktinath trek starts with a 7-hour drive to Pokhara city (City of Lakes) and then a short mountain flight to Jomsom which is known as the capital city of Mustang district. From Jomsom, we hike toward Kagbeni. It is a small beautiful village that gives us sights of rolling Tibetan highlands. Muktinath is a famous pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists. It is the highest altitude (3,800m.) that this trek reaches.

This trek is special for people who do not have previous trekking experience. Further down the road, the trail leads to Tatopani where we can enjoy the natural hot spring pool. We observe stunning views of the Annapurna Himalayan range and also this trek allows us to observe the famous Apple gardens in Marpha village.

The Jomsom Muktinath trek also unveils the amazing diversity of Nepal offering marvelous views of deep valleys, high mountains, barren land, the Kali Gandaki gorge, apple gardens and the holy place of ‘Muktinath’ temple, which is the main attraction of this trek. Glorious Himalaya guides you into the gentle wild as you seek a meeting with the gods…

You can then go for a stroll down the street to get familiar with the neighborhoods, have supper and go to bed. This is your first overnight in the valley of temples and cows, probably the most in the world – breakfast

02 DAY

Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara (850m

After breakfast, we leave our hotel early morning for a drive with scenic views along the road to Pokhara via Prithivi National Highway. The drive could take roughly 7-8 hrs to reach Pokhara.

Earlier, it used to be the only tea-house in the area when it got its namesake, ‘Eklai–Bhatti’.

From here, the path splits into two ways, the one higher up leads to Muktinath & the other route takes us to upper Mustang and Tibet via Kagbeni.
