Jomsom Muktinath Tour



This is one of the oldest and pilgrims cultural treks in Nepal. Also known as classic trek which essentially the final third of the Annapurna Circuit, follows the Kali Gandaki Valley between the soaring peak of Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and Annapurna. The trek follows the ancient trading route from India to Tibet up the Kali Gandaki valley starting from the road head near Pokhara and finishing at the pilgrimage site of Muktinath. Muktinath Temple, the holy place where you will observe the activities of many devout Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims including ascetics or "Sadhus" who have walked from as far as India to reach this point.
