Destination

This Jomsom Muktinath trek gives you a great opportunity to explore then unique nature of Annapurna national park. Travel to and stay at locations which made the Mustang region so popular in the world. Besides natural beauty, the upper Mustang region is divine and spiritual so consider this as a pilgrimage.

The wind blows so hard in the Mustang region that it carries pebbles with it. So be sure to dodge flying rocks while you are trekking there. The places we walk to are so remote that they seem to come right out of a Game of Thrones scene. But people still live here growing apples or herding yaks and they love it here because nowhere in Earth does life offer great adventures on a daily basis. You will get a sense of this adventure when you trek from Pokhara to Jomsom.

  • Most days of the trek will be spent in lower Himalayas so they should not be as tough. But we do go over 10,000 feet and climb for hours on end which will put pressure on your legs and test your grit. Beginners can give this a try if you take light endurance training before starting the trip.
  • Please make sure you take a travel insurance at home before arriving here. It is mandatory and you cannot take it in Nepal. Your insurance agent will know which insurance plan suits your travel.
  • It is advisable that you free up a few days before and after your trip schedule. For reasons beyond our control like flight delays, accidents and natural hazards, the itinerary may have to be altered.
  • Please inform us and our guides if you have any medical condition that might affect your trip. Please consult your doctor beforehand for any precautions you need to take and always carry medicines if you need them. However, our guides and local support staff have been trained in basic medical intervention and your travel insurance covers any emergency rescue or evacuation.
  • You may decide to alter your itinerary to some degree as long as there are no time constraints and everyone consents, if you are travelling in a group. Talk to us before embarking on the trip or you may also talk to our guides to see if we can arrange something. One thing we have learned from mountaineering all these years is however good you plan your journey, there are bound to be some improvisations to make our experience richer.
