Jomsom Trek (8 -10 Days)

This is the classic tea house trek and boasts some of the best trekking lodges in Nepal. The main feature of the trek is the walk through the deepest gorge in the world carved by the Kali Gandaki River, which carries water from the Tibetan plateau and joins the Ganges in India. During this trek you will experience the mid-hills, high mountains and Tibetan-like country. This trek takes you to Ghorepani (Poonhill), Tatopani (Hot spring), Jomsom (Windy Valley), Kagbeni and Muktinath (the famous pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists).

To the Hindus, Muktinath is a sacred place of salvation. Hindus believe that washing in the waters here guarantees salvation after death. To the Buddhists it is a place where the great sage, Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava), meditated. You will meet a variety of Nepalese people along the trek. There is a mixture of Gurung and Magar people in the lower parts of Kaligandaki, Thakali people from Ghasa to Jomsom, and people with obvious Tibetan roots (the Lopas) around Muktinath and up to Mustang.

The Kaligandaki Valley has been a major trading area for centuries. Only 50 years ago, traders bartered salt from Tibet in exchange for rice and barley from the mid-hills of Nepal. If you don't have enough time to do the entire trek, you can fly to Jomsom, trek to Muktinath, and fly back to Pokhara within 4–5 days. You will have time to take in the full experience if you can do this trek in 10-12 days. The highest trekking point that is reached is 3,802 meters at Muktinath. The Jomson trek is possible throughout the year.
