Jomsom Muktinath Trekking is one of the most popular holiday in Nepal, lies to northwest of Pokhara valley. Jomsom is known as windy valley, after mid day strong winds blow. The trek starts from the foothills of Annapurna called Naya Pul, then you are ascending to Ghorepani / Poonhill. The trek gets interesting in Tatopani where you will have the opportunity to relax in natural hot springs! Then the trek passes through Jomsom and Kagbeni, the entry point of the upper Mustang Region and Tibet. You will be at the deepest gorge in that time.
The grandeur of the Dhaulagiri Glacier is on show a little further up along with the first glimpse of the windy Tibetan Plateau on the way to the holy Hindu pilgrimage site of Muktinath (3800m/12,464 ft). The sacred temple has 108 waterfalls that resemble water flowing from taps and mysterious natural gas fires that boggle the mind. From here it is downhill to Jomsom village on the Tibetan Plateau where you can look around at the gateway to the “Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang”, and get a glimpse of the ancient traditions still in practice.
A flight the following day will bring you to Pokhara from where we make a few hours’s drive through the green mountains to Kathmandu.
