Jomsom Muktinath Trek - 12 Days

Jomsom Muktinath trek

Overview

Jomsom Muktinath Trek is also known as a lower mustang trek. Jomsom is the capital of the Mustang district and also it is known as the”windy valley”. It lies 2800 meters above sea level in a valley on the bank of the Holy Kaligandaki River. Its inhabitants are the Thakali, who are a very famous ethnic group of Nepal. Previously Thakali used to live in Thak Khola, but have now spread into slightly more modernized parts of Nepal. Jomsom is the gateway to the “Upper Mustang Trek”, which is a restricted area and requires a special permit to enter.

Lower Mustang Trek or Jomsom Trek is famous as a trekkers paradise because of its wonderful topography and numerous places of interest. The Jomsom valley trek begins from either Jomsom (after taking flight from Pokhara) or from Birethanti (after an hour and a half bus ride from Pokhara). On the way, one can enjoy panoramic views of the Himalayas while walking through the world’s deepest gorge at Dana. At the same time, you can stop at hot spring at Tatopani, which has a belief of washing away sins in the purifying waters.

Most of the trek is along the river of Kaligandaki, where one can find Shaligram (fossils). Shaligram is a black stone that reveals different patterns once broken open. The trek to Jomsom leads you all the way to Muktinath (God of Salvation). Muktinath is one of the most popular Hindu temples of Nepal, featuring pagoda-style temples and Buddhist Gompas. There are 108 images around the temple and three natural fires (Jwalamai), which are easily viewable from inside the Gompas. This is the adventure of a lifetime, fusing interesting elements of Nepalese culture and beautiful nature.
