Jomsom Muktinath Trek is located in the Annapurna region, north of Pokhara. The most dramatic close views of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world are offered by our Jomsom trek. This trek starts with a long climb up to the world's deepest gorge, on the Kali Gandaki. The Jomsom and Muktinath combo trek offers you a great chance to encounter unique cultures which have been in practice since their ancient beginnings.

The Jomsom Muktinath trek is famous for the Muktinath temple situated at 3,800m. It is a significant site for religious devotees and mountain lovers alike. The Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims take a bath under 108 sacred water spouts, even in December! This is to wash out their bad karma. The Saligram (fossils) can be found on the river bank of Kaligandaki, which are understood to be incarnations of the God Vishnu. According to Hindu scripture, people believe that Saligram bestows wealth, forgiveness, health, and happiness. During Jomsom Trek, the natural hot spring “Tatopani” are also significant for religious and scientific purpose. Beyond this Ghorepani Poon hill offers you magnificent sunrises and sunsets above breathtaking views of the entire Annapurna range. The powerful Kali Gandaki Holey River has cut a deep gorge at Dana (1450m) between the massive Himalaya peaks of Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna I (8,091m). During the sunset and sunrise over Annapurna I (8,091m), II, III, IV, and Annapurna South, Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Manaslu (8,176m), Mt. Nilgiri, Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Gangapurna, and Tukuche slowly begin to appear like magic before your eyes. The trail goes slowly through rhododendron forests with the majestic Annapurna range revealing itself as you emerge from the forest into Poon Hill.

The Jomsom Muktinath Trekking normally begins with a flight from Pokhara to Jomsom and then a trek down to Nayapul, Beni, or Phedi to visit Annapurna Base Camp. If you are scared about high altitude sickness we advise you to begin trekking from Phedi, Nayapul, or Beni. However, in our experience, nobody has had any problems, even if they fly to Jomsom. The traditional salt traders Thakali are well known for their cuisine and have converted their charming and wonderfully clean homes into trekkers' lodges. We at “Nepal Mother House Treks” are glad to design your holiday throughout the whole year with a long-range experienced guides and staff. However, we recommended the Muktinath trek from the beginning of September to mid-November and the beginning of March to mid-May for every individual, group, or family. Please you are always welcome to ask whatever you need in order to set up your trip itinerary.
