Jomsom Muktinath trekking is popular trekking trail in Annapurna region. Annapurna Jomsom Muktinath trekking offers beautiful and significant Himalayan views including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu, etc. The 11-days trek begins from Kathmandu with the tour of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Then, we fly from Pokhara to Jomsom, and begin trekking from there. We trek in the beautiful Annapurna region and gradually enter the Mustang region. Our trail passes through quaint villages, cascading waterfalls, lush forests and surprisingly an almost-barren leeward side of the Himalayas. The diverse Nepalese landscape combined with the rich culture of its people makes this trek more rewarding. On our Jomsom Muktinath trek, we also walk on trails along the Kali Gandaki gorge which is the deepest gorge on earth and then visit Muktinath Temple which is an important place of pilgrimage for Hindus. The trek ends with our flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and continue followed by a drive to Kathmandu.

Since the trek attains the maximum altitude of just 3800 meters, it can be completed by anybody with a moderate level of fitness. As you saunter along the Kali Gandaki River Gorge, the 8000 meters + peaks like Annapurna-I and Dhaulagiri greet you with their apparent immortality. In the inception, we traverse through the Annapurna region ascending alongside the beatific rice terraces and villages inhabited by the indigenous people, mostly the “Gurungs”.  A hike to the famed “Poon Hill” offers jaw-dropping views of sunrise and the surrounding Himalayas. The trek gets more soothing in Tatopani as you take a plunge in the hot spring to do away your fatigue; it gives you the reminiscence of being at one of the sophisticated city spas.  In the days ahead, we pass by attractive town of Jomsom and then Kagbeni, the gateway to the secluded region of Upper Mustang. Witnessing the grandeur of the Dhaulagiri Glacier we make our way along the windy Tibetan plateau towards the pious premises of Muktinath. This sacred temple has 108 waterfalls
