Jomsom Muktinath Trek

Jomsom Muktinath Trekking is situated North of Pokhara, Nepal’s spectacular diversity appears at its finest The deep valleys and high mountains encircling the giant Annapurna Himal embrace a wide range of peoples and terrain, from subtropical jungle to a high, dry landscape resembling the Tibetan Plateau. This is the most popular trekking region, attracting over 75% of all trekkers (more than 30.000 annually). It’s also among the tamest areas, with excellent lodges lining the main routes. Finding Nepal beneath the flood of trekkers can be difficult, but the scenery and culture are top-notch, and you can avoid the peak-season crush and still get fine weather and views.

The views of the mountains are spectacular, and the route actually crosses to the other side of the main Himalayan range for some unusual views of the northern flanks.

What a great adventure!! We just got back from a fantastic trek in the Everest Region. Our guide Ram and our porter Janak were great. They were friendly and helpful and lots of fun. We went from June 12 to 26,2004 and the weather was fine. We got lots of great views and not much rain. We also loved how flexible our itinerary was. We changed our plan a few times based on how we felt. Thanks for AWESOME trip!!
