JomsomMuktinath Trek is distinguished by the picturesque windswept valleys, Annapurna Himalayan sceneries, and the world-renowned pilgrimage destination Muktinath. The route lies north of Pokharaand starts after an hour of driving to the gateway at Nayapul. The trek combines Ghorepani Poon Hill in the beginning and the deep KaliGandaki Gorge. For centuries, this gorge was a major trade route between India and Tibet.  The trail then joinsJomsom and continues through the windswept trail to Muktinath, which has a spectacular desert landscape.

Jomsom is the district center of the Mustang region. It is populated by indigenous groups such as Thakali, Gurung and Tibetans. Their cultural traditions are fascinating to explore. The trek to Muktinath is popular with both the Hindu and Buddhist devotees. Muktinath is the temple of such deities who helpabsolve the sins of people. It is believed that if you travel to Muktinath once in your lifetime, you can get permission to enter heaven. Along the way, you may see sadhus carrying a trident, paying homage to Hindu gods, and little more than the clothes on their back.  You may also see people selling shaligram, a black stone that holds inside of it the remains of prehistoric ammonites that lives more than 140 million years ago.  JomsomMuktinath Trek is also a wonderful trek to view the Himalayas and the eye-catching landscape. The views of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna (8091m), Nilgiri(7040m), Himchuli(6441m),LamjungHimal(6586m), Fishtail (6998m) and the surrounding white peaks are visible. The Annapurna Conservation Area Projecthas preserved the biological diversity and you can view the varieties of flora and fauna.

Popular as the lower Mustang trek, JomsomMuktinath trekking package offers you an opportunity to observe the biological variations, walk in the desert cape and get the white peaks’ panoramas.
