Jomsom Muktinath Trekking  |  14 Days

This popular trek takes you to the ancient pilgrimage site of Muktinath, important to both Hindu and Buddhist devotees. It follows an ancient trade route between Nepal and Tibet and passes through the world's deepest gorge and some of the most beautiful scenery in the Himalaya including the Annapurna Range with the 10th highest mountain on the planet and Dhaulagiri, the 7th highest. You will have magnificent views and experience a wide diversity of cultures along the way from the plateau of Mustang to the fertile lowlands.

Pokhara Jomsom Muktinath is a top-down trek, starting near the highpoint and eventually working our down which makes for a pleasant, more relaxed way to see some of the world's greatest sights and meet people who follow an age-old lifestyle, even today. The trek is also famous for small, ammonite fossils found in the area around MuktinathTemple which are sacred to Hindu pilgrims as representations of Vishnu. The temple is famous for its burning eternal flame of natural gas, 108 brass water spouts, and pagoda shrines. The name Muktinath actually means, place of liberation. The Pokhara Jomsom Muktinath Trek is a marvelous tour combining natural and cultural diversity with astounding beauty.

Our treks in the Annapurna region start from Pokhara, a famously beautiful lakeside city with mountain views. We will take a short, scenic morning flight to the mountain village of Jomsom, headquarters of Mustang District. The trek then begins over a windswept river basin up to Kagbeni, an ancient village and a main waypoint on the trade route. The beautiful village feels like a step back in time and the surroundings are a feast for the eyes. We continue up to the sacred temple at Muktinath and spend a day there observing the local way of life and exploring the nearby villages.

We then make our way down the Kali Gandaki Valley on new trails that are away from the road, passing magnificent displays of village life and flora and fauna of the region We finally reach a natural hot springs where we can relax and enjoy the rewards of our efforts and reminisce about the beauty of the Pokhara Jomsom Muktinath trek.

We have options to visit viewpoints of Khopra, Poon Hill and Mohare with final views of the astonishing Himalayan Range and eventually we make it back to the road for a short drive to Pokhara and a celebratory conclusion to this wonderful trek.

This trek is a suitable choice for anyone with a limited schedule wanting to get a taste of both culture and stunning scenery and also a great option for a family journey. People with more time might consider combining Pokhara Jomsom Muktinath with our Annapurna Circuit Trek and/or our Annapurna Base Camp Trek. We will be happy to arrange everything to suit your needs for these treks and much more!
