Jomsom Muktinath & Ghorepani Trek, is one of the easy treks in the Annapurna region. The journey to Jomsom Muktinath kicks off from Pokhara with a one-hour drive to Nayapul and makes relatively little uphill climb to Tikhedhunga (1540m) and walk to Ghorepani. We wake up early in the morning at Ghorepani and hike to Poon Hill (3210 m), the best view point to see sunrise in the morning. Besides, from Poon Hill we also enjoy wonderful view of mountains that include Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna southMt.Machhapuchhapure (fishtail), Mt. GangapurnaLamjung HimalBarasikharNilgiri, Tukuche Peak, and Mt. Hiunchuli and with dozens of other peaks.

From Ghorepani we walk  down to Tatopani (Natural hot spring) and take natural hot bath. Then, we continue our walk through Ghasa and Marpha up to Kali Gandaki, the deepest gorge in the world and finally the trail emerges into wide valley of Jomsom. At the lower altitude we find rhododendron forests but at the higher altitude the landscape is dramatically changed into the arid desert like plateau similar to Tibet. Jomsom Muktinath is, indeed, a classical trek that follows Kali Gandaki valley between two big mountains- Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

Jomsom Muktinath trek is suitable for those who are interested in experiencing the lifestyle of the mountain people, their ancient culture and diverse landscape. While trekking, you will encounter with caravan of donkey and ponies traveling to Mustang and other areas in the far north of Nepal. The final goal of Jomsom Muktinath trek is to reach Muktinath (3,800 m).The temple of Muktinath (3,800m) with 108 water spouts flowing holy water from taps and mysterious natural gas fires that surprises every visitor. This temple is very much sacred to both Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrims coming from different parts of India and Nepal. After visiting Muktinath Temple we further walk downhill to Jomsom, along the trail we enjoy with the beauty of the Dhaulagiri Glacier gleaming to the north. On the concluding day of the trek we take either a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara or can drive straight up to Pokhara.  This is lodge trek ideal for those people who are not experienced in trekking in Nepal or having limited time to do a longer trek in the Annapurna region.
