Visiting Nepal, Keep Walking From Jomsom To Muktinath In Annapurna Himalayas Of Nepal
The Jomsom to Muktinath trek is one of the most beautiful and scenic sections of the Annapurna region. The diversity of landscapes and the magnitude of the mountains must be seen to be appreciated. From deep, lush fertile valleys to some of the highest peaks in the world. Magnificent high altitude vistas, this is where you might get a closer look at the Himalayan vultures often seen soaring overhead or perched along the peaks. The route actually crosses to the other side of the main Himalayan range for some incredible views of the northern flanks following the Kali Gandaki river and emerges at Jomsom, nestled between the mighty Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri mountains on the border of Mustang, which is popularly known as the Himalayan Shangri-la. The entire route remains below 4000 meters, though the trek is still strenuous enough to be stimulating and gives an amazing perspective from deep within the incredible natural wonder of the Himalayan mountains. Beyond Jomsom, the scenery just gets better, offering many different perspectives of this incredible mountain range and takes you to the final destination, Muktinath, the Holy temple of Nepal.
This is the most popular trekking region, attracting over 75% of all trekkers. The main attractions include semi-Tibetan culture, holy Shiva’s pilgrimage site, Buddhist society, stunning mountain views and mixed culture.
