Overview

The Jomsom trek as it is commonly known is also 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.

The natural beauty along the Jomsom – Muktinath trek is breathtaking. The scenery of the trail ranges from the forests of brilliant red rhododendrons to rocky cliffs and desert of Mustang.

The trail follows the Kali Gandaki River. This river forms the most massive gorge in the world and on one side lies the Annapurna mountain range and on the other hand, lays the Dhaulagiri. Between the two varieties, there are views of 8 of the 20 highest mountains in the world. The Kali Gandaki is a quarter of a mile wide river bed, and during the winters the river is practically dry, but during the summers and monsoons, the water level rises with rainwater and melting snow. You can find fossil rocks in the banks of Kali Gandaki River which is believed to be sacred for the Hindus.

The culture among the trail is rich with the religious mixture of Hindus and Tibetan Buddhist faction.

The trail weaves through the Lower Mustang region of Nepal ending at the village of Kagbeni which is a Tibetan influenced village filled with prayer wheels, chortens, and a Buddhist monastery.

The highest point on this trail is Muktinath at 3800 meters – a holy site of temples that have been sacred to both Buddhist’s and Hindu’s for centuries.

I did the Jomsom Muktinath Trek in May together with my boyfriend. We changed the offered tour and got our own ‚private‘ tour for 8 days. We went together with our guide Namaraj Sapkota and our porter. Because we spent some more time in Nepal apart from trekking, we started the tour in Pokhara. On the tour we slept in comfortable Teahouses and also the drinks and food were quite good. The impressions and views will always be rembered. Our guide, Namaraj Sapkota, told us a lot about the people oft the Anapurna area and Nepal in general. As well as the rituals of the temple in Muktinath, the whole story about the earthquake and even the traditional way of living in this area. Our guide was always careing about us and our health. All the time were feeling pretty save. We didn’t see any effets oft he earthquake in the Anapurna region, all the roads and the bridges were in good conditions, so we had no problems. In Kathmandu we only saw a few buildings and temple which were beeing rebuild. The whole trip was very well organized by Earthbound Expeditions and individual and sponaeous wishes were always possible. We can highly recommed Earthbound Expeditions and our Guide Namaraj Sapkota. The next trip will definitely be with them. All in all we can say the country and the people are amazing, it has an exhilarating landscape.
