Jomsom-Muktinath Trek is an energizing trek in the Annapurna and Mustang districts of Nepal. The trek begins with the flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, the wonderful Lake City and starts trekking from that point. We trek in the wonderful Annapurna area and step by step.
Henceforward, we enter the Mustang district. Our trail goes through curious towns, falling cascades, lavish forests, and shockingly a different side of the Himalayas. Therefore, the beauty of Nepal accompanied by the rich culture of its own kind makes this trek more exciting and pleasing.
Also, we will walk along the trails of Kali Gandaki gorge on this trek which is among the deepest gorges on earth. Afterward, we will visit Muktinath Temple which is a significant pilgrimage destination for both Hindus and Buddhists.
The temple is believed to have all the five elements of the earth i.e. fire, water, wind, earth, and sky.
Similarly, enjoying the luxurious natural hot spring in Tatopani after the walk will be a very satisfying experience. There are 108 water-taps in Muktinath Temple, the believer trust that bathing in these taps will remove all the negativity from life.
