The Jomsom-Muktinath trek is a popular trek as it offers the opportunity to experience a broad range of landscapes and cultures. Muktinath with its rugged and barren landscape is an important Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage site while the people of Kagbeni, at the access gateway to the mystical Upper Mustang Valley, are devotees of a unique brand of Tibetan Buddhism. Further along, the forested trails and villages of the Annapurna foothills in the Ghorepani region are inhabited by Gurung and Margar people.
After a flight from Pokhara, the trek commences at Jomsom from where we head upstream along the Kali Gandaki to the village of Kagbeni where we spend time exploring this ancient village. From here we head to the fascinating village of Muktinath for an overnight stay before heading back downhill to the pretty village of Marpha and visit its huge monastery. The trail then follows the Kali Gandaki River to Ghasa with panopramic views of the Annapurnas as well as Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and Tukuche peak. You will also get excellent views of Dhaulagiri Icefall on the way. From Ghasa the trail continues through the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the world’s deepest gorge, and on to Tatopani where you can enjoy a relaxing bath in the hot springs. Continuing on the next morning to Ghorepani followed by an early morning rise and hike to Poon Hill for panoramic views of the mountains before trekking to Nayapul and on to Pokhara by road.
The trek starts and finishes in Pokhara and includes the flight from Pokhara to Jomsom. To keep cost as low as possible, we offer the flexibility for you to arrange your own transport to the start and from end of the trek if you wish. Alternatively, we are happy to arrange all connections within Nepal as well as accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara if required.
