Jomsom Muktinath trek is one of the best composed Himalayan adventures including mountain trekking, visiting the sacred temple Muktinath and experiencing 3 different Nepalese cities.
This pilgrimage trail provides an awe-inspiring understanding of Nepal while exploring the local tribes, their culture, traditional villages and enjoying the spectacular views of different landscapes with snow capped mountains (Mt. Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and many others). Thrilling sensation given by the landscape from Jomsom to Muktinath will be memorable. As this trail is a part of the famous Annapurna circuit and Upper mustang trekking, we will meet fellow trekkers with lots of stories to tell - some of victory, some of suffering. Muktinath is a temple for both Hindu and Buddist people situated at the base of Thorong La pass along the Around Annapurna trekking trail. It is also a gateway for the trekkers going to upper mustang trekking.
This package is more like a tour than a trekking activity.
We fly to Jomsom and trek down to Nayapul, the idea is to do easy trekking in the beautiful nature. View of the deserted landscape while trekking from Jomsom to Muktinath will give you a sense of Mini Tibet, and the view of the wide range of mountains from Poonhill (Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range) will be one of the highlights of the trip. Adventure of walking the uphills and downhills of Ghorepani village through the green forest will add to your experience. Trekking in spring time will give a chance to enjoy the blooming Rhododendron forests throughout the trail after Jomsom to Nayapul. Considering all these factors, Jomsom Muktinath trek is a great choice for someone looking for easier access to the stunning mountains and holy sites during their holiday in Nepal.
Village of Jomsom and Kagbeni and even Muktinath village show real Mustang.
Thatched house in the village of Muktinath resemble the beauty of Tibet, even though we are trekking in Nepal. Taking shower under the 108 tabs in Muktinath temple and offering at the natural flame, the temple will purify our souls. Temple of Muktinath is famous as Mukti Kshetra (translates to place for enlightenment), so visiting this place will add value for your trip. The Jomsom Muktinath trek offers not only the pilgrimage site but also the spectacular views of the snow capped Himalayas like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several other mountains from the Temple of Muktinath itself. From Ghorepani Village, the panoramic view of the mountains is unreal. The trail provides you an opportunity not just to relax in natural hot springs in Tatopani but also soaks you with the beauty of nature while trekking. Overall, Jomsom Muktinath trek is a perfect combination of culture, nature, religion, lifestyle, mountain and jungle of Nepal.
