Jomsom Muktinath Trek
  • img304

Jomsom Muktinath trek has some spectacular view of the incredible mountains vistas, unique, famous temples and monasteries along the Mustang valley. The trekking to Jomsom Muktinath takes you to Pokhara thru the valley of Kaligandaki river to pilgrimage site of Muktinath.


The Jomsom Muktinath trek can start from three points. Number one, beginning approximately an hour drive from Pokhara to Nayapul then trekking to Muktinath via Tikhedhunga and Ghorepani.  The second option is to drive to Beni first, via Nayapul and either start trekking or continue to drive to Muktinath via Tatopani (hot spring). The 3rd option is to fly to Jomsom and trek to Muktinath which is one of the shorter trekking itineraries in Nepal. If you have enough time Sherpa Expedition and Trekking strongly recommend you start your trek from Nayapul - the first option. Even though the road is accessible from Beni to Jomsom/Muktinath, it is still worthwhile taking this trek up to Muktinath as there are not many vehicles on the road and it is also possible to follow the old trekking trails part of the way. 
If you start trekking via Nayapul through Thikhedhunga – Ghorepani – Tatopani (hot spring) you will reach Poon Hill which is the most popular and easy trekking in Nepal. Poon Hill offers a panoramic view of the Annapurna Himalayas range, including sunrise, after which we descend to Tatopani - a natural hot spring.  The trekking trail goes all the way to the Kali Gandaki River gorge (Kali Gandaki Gorge is the deepest gorge/ valley in the world, nearby Dana) and then passing through Dhaulagiri Icefall nearby Larjung and through many fascinating Thakali villages along the way and finally to the headquarters of the district called Jomsom. We then head north to Kagbeni alongside the Kali Gandaki River and pass an ancient fortress-settlement on the border of Upper Mustang.   From Kagbeni the trail heads north to Muktinath while walking through an old village of  Jharkot before heading on to Muktinath where you will have a day to explore Muktinath Temple and finally descend to Jomsom via Lupra. The next morning we take a flight to Pokhara. After more than 40 years in the trekking business, you can be assured that we know how to give you a lifelong memorable experience.
