A cultural pilgrimage
One of the most popular treks in Nepal, the Jomsom trek from Pokhara to Muktinath, offers the greatest cultural diversity of any in Nepal. Along this scenic route you will pass through villages inhabited by different ethnic groups such as Thakali, Gurung, and Magar and in higher elevation the Tibetan culture is predominant. Here you may visit several authentic Tibetan Monasteries. The trail follows up the Kali Gandaki Valley, one of the deepest gorges in the world, between the soaring peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and finally emerges to the north of the main Himalayan range, on the dry, desert like Tibetan Plateau. The high point of the trek is at the Holy Temple of Muktinath 3800m which affords spectacular views. It is also possible to finish the trek at Jomsom, elevation 2,800m. The walking trail is a gentle slope making this a relatively easy trek that can be completed all year round. The average time is 14 days although a flight one way or the other not only offers incredible views but enables you to do this trek in approximately 8 – 10 days.
