Trip Overview

Jomsom Muktinath Trek Overview

Jomsom Muktinath is a compound word; the words that are related to two popular places, famous for a trek in the Annapurna Region. Jomsom is renowned in the world for being the windiest place, while Muktinath has a sacred temple for the Hindus; the Buddhists and the Jains also hold Muktinath in high esteem. Both of these places lie in Mustang District, and when the trekking trail takes you to the heart of Mustang, there are lots of apple orchards, and you will get lots of items made of these apples, including apple wine and brandy. Side by side in Mustang, you will see everything that the Tibetan Culture has to show, and there is also a place called Tatopani which in Nepali means hot water, that is, hot spring, where you can dip to get relief. Seeing the original Tibetan Culture, having the best Natural Treatment, the trekking trail takes you to the past when you pick up ancient marine fossils that date back to millions of years old. Because of all these as well as because of the part of the Annapurna Circuit Trek that has snow-covered mountains, Jomsom Muktinath Trek is one of the best treks that you will come across when thinking of holidaying in Nepal.

Overall, the Jomsom Muktinath Trek is about seeing the incredible view of the Himalayas, the breath-taking ones, in addition to this, standing in the beautiful landscapes as well as being on the Tibetan Plateau. This is the world’s highest tableland you will ever reach. Because of this, it has the Valley of Kali Gandaki River, the world’s deepest gorge. Where there is a high altitude, the trekking trail becomes scenic and takes you to Poon Hill, the best viewpoint in the Annapurna Region, from where you can see the rewarding and panoramic view of all the snow-covered mountains like the Annapurna Ranges, Manaslu, and Dhaulagiri. In such an altitude, there is always a rhododendron forest, and this is only the altitude which has a barren land as well as beautiful landscapes through which you walk without complaining.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu and Pokhara, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located in a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your sleeping bag.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Everest trekking in Nepal

Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.

What we have said, we will provide you all. Please tell us if you need extra. We do not want you only to become happy, but also from happier to the happiest throughout your trip. Having said this, we cannot control the bad weather as well as the other thing, like bandh made by political parties. This thing will lead to a change in your itinerary, but our sole purpose will be to follow it and to take you from one place to another safely. As regards this, we would like to tell you now that you should bring some extra cash for the above situation or for extra days, which are not included in the itinerary, however, the above situation is just like once in a blue moon because Nepal is 99% politically stable country.

TMG will provide you transportation from Kathmandu to Pokhara and back to Kathmandu on a tourist bus. (If you have a short time, you can take a flight) Those who like to have a private car or jeep, please let us know; you have to pay an additional cost.
