Jomsom Muktinath trek is one of the easy and  beautiful treks in the Annapurna region. The journey to Jomsom Muktinath kicks off  with a one-hour drive  from Pokhara to Nayapul and makes relatively little uphill climb to Tikhedhunga (1540m) and walk to Ghorepani. We wake up early in the morning at Ghorepani and hike to Poon Hill (3210 m), the best view point to see sunrise. Besides, from Poon Hill we also enjoy wonderful view of mountains that include Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna south, Machhapuchhapure (fishtail), Gangapurna, Lamjung Himal, Barasikhar, Nilgiri, Tukuche Peak, and Hiunchuli and with dozens of other peaks.

From Ghorepani we walk to Tatopani (Natural hot spring) and take natural hot spring bath. Next day morning , you  continue your walk through Ghasa  making a steep climb through forest until you  reach to Lete. From Lete you keep walking to the east side of theKaligandaki river valley and  reach at Larjung Village for overnight stay. After breakfast you will begin the trek crossing the trail through Tukche village and apple farm projects until you arrive at  Marpha Village. This  village is inhabited by Thakali, one of the ethnic groups of people of the country. Here you will have an opportunity to observe plenty of birds.

The trail continues along the Kali Gandaki valley, crosses over a low ridge and finally reaches at Jomsom Village. Kali Gandaki Valley is the world’s the deepest gorge and your walking trail  emerges into wide valley of Jomsom. At the lower altitude we find rhododendron forests but at the higher altitude the landscape is dramatically changed into the arid desert like plateau similar to Tibet.

From Jomsom you walk further  along  the Kali Gandaki river bed for about 3 hrs and finally reach at Ekley-bhatti village. After having a good rest you make  an hour long easy walk to Kagbeni, which lies at the bank of 2 rivers. Kagbeni is a motivating inhospitable villages settled on the most age recent Trans Himalayan salt trade route to Asian country via higher pony space.

The final goal of Jomsom Muktinath trekking is to reach Muktinath (3,800 m).The temple of Muktinath (3,800m) with 108 water spouts flowing holy water from taps and mysterious natural gas fires that surprises every visitor. This temple is very much sacred to both Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrims coming from different parts of India and Nepal. After visiting Muktinath Temple you will trek back  to Jomsom  following the same  trail enjoying the beauty of the Dhaulagiri Glacier gleaming to the north. On the concluding day of the trek we take flight from Jomsom to Pokhara.  Jomsom Muktinath is a lodge-based trek ideal for those who are not experienced in trekking in Nepal or having limited time to do a longer trek in the Annapurna region.
