Jomsom Muktinath Trek

 

Jomsom Muktinath Trek

Trek Grade: B (Moderate)
Trek Duration: 10 Days
Hotel in KTM/Pokhara: 5 Nights
Season: Sept. to June.

This is a wonderful trek through lovely Gurung and Magar villages before descending into the Kali Gandaki Valley located between the peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. This valley is an important migration route for birds that fly from the Siberian steppes and Tibetan Plateau towards the south in the winter. The trail follows the ancient trade route to Mustang and Tibet and passes through Tibet-like countryside, reaching the pilgrimage site of Muktinath (3,658m). We retrace the trail to the hot spring at Tatopani before returning to Pokhara via Ghandrung and Dhampus. For this trek, we need to fly to Jomsom and begin the trek from there to Muktinath. This trek also can be done by taking a flight to Pokhara then trekking through Dhampus - Ghandrung - Jomsom up to Muktinath. After Muktinath we retrace our way back to Jomsom and fly back to Kathmandu. Beautiful panoramic views from Ghorepani and on the Deurali Ridge as well as diverse cultures makes this a first time trek that will make you want to return to the Himalayan Kingdom.
