Jomsom Muktinath Poonhill Trek Details

Jomsom Muktinath Poonhill trek is one of the popular  trekking destinations in Annapurna region. The major attractions of the Jomsom Muktinath trekking route are Kagbeni, Muktinath temple, Natural Hot spring Tatopani, the most popular view point Poonhill and Ghandruk Gurung village etc. The nice alternative trekking route has been built from  Ghasa to Tatopani. You do not need to walk in road.

Jomsom Muktinath Trekking starts after 30 minutes flight from Pokhara to Jomsom. It is also known as pilgrims trekking. The trek reaching the maximum altitude of 3800m (12,464 ft) and can be completed by anybody with a moderate level of fitness. This trek gives many spectacular views of the two Himalayas Annapurna ranges and Dhaulagiri ranges. Explore the hundreds years old monastery, caves, local tribes, culture and life style and scenic beauties of the different landscapes. There are 108 water taps and two small pounds. The Hindu people believe that if you take bath 108 taps (108 is a sacred number in Tibetan Buddhism), cast in the shape of cows heads, which pour forth sacred water. You will be the free from the sin which you committed in your past life. A short walk past a collection of chortens is the Dhola mebar Gompa, or Jwalamai (goddess of fire) temple, where a holy flame of natural gas burns behind a grill just above the spring. Joining our Jomsom Muktinath Trekking is included the world’s deepest gorge of the Kali Gandaki River between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The trek gets interesting in Tatopani where you will have the opportunity to relax in natural hot spring. The views from the first rays of the sun at the break of dawn grace of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayans from Ghorepani (Poon Hill,3210m.), that is absolutely magnificent . The hike continues through dense rhododendron forest towering view of snowcapped mountains in the background to Tadapani and Ghandruk. The trek will end at Nayapul and then we drive back to Pokhara.
