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.
