Trip Overview

Opt-out for a perfect blend of nature and culture in the backdrop of wild Himalayas! Jomsom Muktinath Trek takes you along a holy trail to taste the contrast between Himalayan adventure and spirituality. Walk through a rugged trail to the wild; desert-like landscape and endeavor all the beauty that Jomson and Muktinath can shower!

Jomsom Muktinath Trek is a classic trek that takes you along some attractive regions in Annapurna like Poon Hill, Kagbeni, Muktinath, Kaligandaki gorge, and Jomsom. You initiate your journey from Nayapul and pass various ethnic settlement villages in between. You continue walking under the shade of rhododendron and fir forest enjoying the vistas of Annapurna at its best. Poon Hill, a vantage point in the region offers majestic views of the Annapurna panorama! The sunrise view from this vantage point adds to the beauty of the mountains and leaves you in awe. As you leave Poon hill, you follow your way along the dry and rough terrain to Kagbeni. A walk along the deepest gorge in the world – Kaligandaki gorge showers you with impressive views of the Annapurna panorama and Dhaulagiri Himal.

The next attraction of the journey is Muktinath temple! It is a popular spiritual site for Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. As per Buddhist mythology, Muktinath is a place where Guru Ripoche meditated on his journey to Tibet. There is a Gompa built in this place that enhances its spirituality. Similarly, Muktinath is a popular temple of Lord Vishnu. The eternal flame in the temple is a major attraction. Another attraction is the courtyard of the temple which consists of 108 bull-faced spouts that pour out cold water. A bath in that cold water is believed to purify your heart and your soul!

Jomsom is a popular village of Gurung people known for its lush landscape and hostile people. Receive a warm greeting from Gurung people as you make your way to Jomsom after a long and tiring journey via Muktinath!

Jomsom Muktinath is a well-designed trek suitable for those who can endure the high elevation regions and walk along rough and dry terrain. So, if you feel you can do it, join Nepal Hiking Team to enjoy the beauty of the Trans Himalayas in Nepal.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
