Overview of Jomsom Muktinath Trek

Jomsom Muktinath Trek is famous in Nepal as a simple trek. This trekking is more popular than nature as a pilgrimage. The Jomsom Muktinath hike takes us to the beautiful and windy city of Jomsom in the lap of the Himalayas. Also, it offers the opportunity to explore a famous Hindu pilgrimage site, Muktinath. This hike is an exciting hike that connects the Annapurna and Mustang regions of Nepal.

Jomsom is a pristine city that is windy in the afternoons and evenings. Jomsom is very popular with apples in Nepal. We will also visit apple orchards and gardens on this Jomsom Muktinath hike. We found several brands of apple liqueurs here in Jomsom.

Muktinath, a famous Hindu pilgrimage site where the god Vishnu is worshipped, conveys spiritual feelings as part of Jomsom Muktinath trekking. According to Hindu mythology, all sins are washed away when we bath in Muktinath, So many Hindu devotees from India and around the world visit Muktinath.

We also visit other beautiful cities like Marpha and Kagbeni. In Marpha, you can see beautiful orchards. Kagbeni offers us fascinating views of the Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, and Tukuche peaks.

The trail primarily runs through picturesque villages, waterfalls, lush forests, and, surprisingly, an almost dry leeward side of the Himalayas. The varied Nepalese landscape, combined with the rich culture of the people, makes this hike even more rewarding. We also pass Kagbeni and Marpha before reaching Muktinath. During the Jomsom Muktinath trek, you can also trek through the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest gorge all over the world, and then visit the Muktinath Temple, which is an essential pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists. Muktinath’s 108 mouths are said to wash away all your sins. At the same time, you will be amazed to see a flame that never goes out. Immersing your body in the Tatopani hot springs will also be a pleasant experience. The trek ends with our short flight from Jomsom to Pokhara.

Weather and the best time

The spring and fall seasons are considered the best time for Jomsom Muktinath Trek as the weather and temperature are calm and constant during these seasons.

Physical fitness and experience requirements

Jomsom Muktinath Trek is an easy trek for passionate hikers who can walk 5 to 7 hours a day with a light backpack.

Exercising and running regularly a few weeks before the trip is an excellent idea to improve your strength and stability. Previous hiking experience would be a bonus, but no technical knowledge is required for this trip.
