Jomsom and Muktinath Trek - 14 Days
Jomsom Muktinath trek is classic lodge trek starts with a long climb to and then descends to the world's deepest gorge, on the Kali Gandeki River, going all the way from rhododendron forests to the beginning of the Tibetan plateau. This trek also offers you a chance to encounter unique cultural people who practice their ancient traditions even today. The maximum altitude reached on this trek is 3800m and can be completed by anybody with a moderate level of fitness.
The first part of this trek ascends through rice terraces and villages inhabited by the fearless Gorkha people, renowned for their strength and as pillars of both the Indian and British armies. A fascinating museum of Traditional Nepalese Life awaits you in Ghandruk. Walking up slowly through rhododendron forests, the majestic Annapurna range reveals itself as you emerge from the forest into Ghorepani. A short hike from Ghorepani will bring you to Poon Hill (3210m), a place of timeless beauty presenting magnificent views of the Himalayan Mountains. The trek gets interesting in Tatopani where you will have the opportunity to relax in natural hot springs! Continuing along the Kali Gandeki River Gorge, marvel at the splendid peaks of Annapurna-I and Dhaulagiri both of which reach heights in excess of 8000m. The grandeur of the Dhaulagiri Glacier is on show a little further up along with the first glimpse of the windy Tibetan Plateau on the way to the holy Hindu pilgrimage site of Muktinath (3800m). The sacred temple has 108 waterfalls that resemble water flowing from taps and mysterious natural gas fires that boggle the mind. From here it is downhill to Jomsom village, on the Tibetan Plateau where you can look around at the gateway to the "Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang", and get a glimpse of the ancient traditions still in practice. A flight the following day will bring you back to Pokhara while you enjoy a last look at the beautiful Himalayan Mountains.
