Trip 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 is one of the most exciting trekking in Annapurna region where it is located at a height of 2,800 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. This trekking trail passes through the world’s deepest Kali Gandaki gorge with dry desert areas like the nearby Tibetan plateau.

The Jomson and Muktinath trek starts with a 7 hours drive to Pokhara city (City of Lakes) and then a short mountain journey to Jomsom which is known as the capital city of Mustang district. From Jomsom we move toward Kagbeni. It is a small beautiful village which gives us sights of rolling Tibetan highlands. Then we continue to Muktinath, Muktinath is a famous pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhist. Muktinath 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 Annapurna Himalayan range and also this trek gives us the opportunity to observe the famous Apple gardens in Marpha village. This 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…
