Jomsom Muktinath Trek

Jomsom Muktinath trek is the famous trekking trip to the holy Muktinath temple situated in the Annapurna region. It is also the adventurous trekking through the cold and windy village in Jomsom. Annapurna region is the land of giant Annapurna Massifs along with Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and many mountains to be experienced to the closer eye sight.

Jomsom at an elevation of 2,713m is now reachable by Land Cruiser, Jeep, Bus or daily flight which has made more straightforward for this Jomsom Muktinath trek. From the old days the settlement was well known for its exceptional vantage point and serving as a trailhead to Muktinath, the temple of the preserver, Mustang the land beyond. The trip will ensure you to by stand the bailer of goods by the natives of the local hills, Thakalis (previous traders who now have a strong restaurant trade) ethnicity and marvelous view of Himalayas.

The trail follows the classical adventurous walk from Jomsom, leading first to reach Kagbeni (2810m) a rural community by the side of Kali Gandki River banks, the deepest gorge in the world. The town seems to have come straight out of the medieval past. The settlement in the mud houses, collection of dark alleys, and imposing chorten and a large Gompa (Buddhist Monastery) are the special features of the place. The life style, languages, dresses of the people itself reflects the high Buddhist culture and tradition which is much untouched by the western influences. From here the trail follows ahead continuing the classical walk past piles of trailside rocks erected by the pilgrims to honor the decreased and then reach to Muktinath.

Muktinath (3,802m) is reachable with trekking or horses and mules are also used as the local means of transportation here. Every year, thousands of pilgrims from many part of the world visit the place, some even in bare feet to worship the eternal flame mentioned in the Mhabharata epics of 300 B.C. The temple is famed for 108 sacred springs and a Tibetan monastery called Jwala Mai houses eternal flames.

During the full moon of July a horse racing festival is celebrated by ethnic Bhatia’s as the Hindu festival of Janai Purnima takes place. Heading down to Marpha you may try the famous local cider of fruit preserves. To the south the trail reaches Tukuche a center where Nepal and Tibet traded during the Rana Era.
