This exciting 10-day trek to Jomsom and Muktinath in the Annapurna region of Nepal takes you to path of salvation, allowing you to visit both Hindu and Buddhist shrines. Progressing through the world’s deepest gorge formed by Kali Gandaki River, the Jomsom Mukthinath trekking trail is made absolutely worthwhile by breathtaking panoramic views of peaks like Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, etc.
The Jomsom Muktinath trek proposed by Orbit Alpine Adventures follows one of the most frequented and well-defined routes, throughout which trekkers have a fabulous opportunity to get lost in appreciation of the constantly changing landscapes along with age-old monasteries, caves, temples, local culture, and a natural hot spring.
Our Jomsom Muktinath trek begins from Nayapul and concludes at Jomsom, from where we fly to Pokhara and then either drive or fly back to Kathmandu. For the first couple of days, we will be walking through fertile terraced farmlands and lush green forests in the Annapurna region, along the same path taken by the popular Ghorepani – Poon Hill – Ghandruk mini-circuit trekkers, diverting from Ghorepani towards Muktiniath instead of Ghandruk, via Tatopani (hotspring) and the beautiful village of Marpha.
In addition to excellent views of the Himalayas from Poon Hill and other places en route, the Jomsom Muktinath trek allows us to have a deeper understanding of the symbiosis among the Hindus and Buddhists in Nepal, both revering Muktinath equally.
