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.
