Jomsom-Muktinath Trek – 15 days

General Overview

annapurna-base-campAnnapurna region trekking in Nepal  is considered one of the best treks in the world, though road construction is threatening its reputation and its future as a classic trek. Yet no one disputes that the scenery is outstanding. The Jomsom trek is commonly known as a part of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. It begins from Pokhara and passes through the Valley of Kali Gandaki River to the pilgrim site of Muktinath.

Jomsom trek takes you through distinct regional scenery of rivers, flora, fauna and above all -  the Annapurna & Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. The natural beauty along the Jomsom – Muktinath trek is breathtaking. The scenery of the trail ranges from the rhododendron forests to rocky cliffs and desert of Mustang. The area is also known as shadow with rainfall. Eagle Treks and Expedition and its guide make Jomsom trek easier and memorable for your life time. The trail follows the Kali Gandaki River. This river forms the deepest gorge in the world and on one side lies the Annapurna mountain range and on the other side the Dhaulagiri. The Kali Gandaki has a wide river bed during the winters the river is practically dry but during the summers and monsoons the water level rises with rain water and melting snow. Where we can find the fossil rocks (Shaaligram) on the bank of Kali Gandaki River. The Shaaligram is believed to be sacred on the Hinduism. The culture among the trail is enrich with religious mixture of Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism.

Jomsom is Mustang district headquarter. So, all the administration offices of Mustang district are here and people from every part of this district need to come to get all the paper work. So, Jomsom will be quite busy must of the time. It is getting busier since the road has been built here. Many pilgrimage would got to Muktinath and Kagbeni through this town. You can fly in and out to/from Pokhara too.
