JOMSOM MUKTINATH TREK 07NT/08DAYS
HOLY TREK TO MUKTINATH
Situated behind the Annapurna range, the temple of Muktinath is venerated by both Hindus and Buddhists. The faithful trek to the shrine to bathe under the bank of water spouts here and worship the sacred flame. We fly to Pokhara and then drive to New Bridge (Naya Pool) where we hit the main Annapurna trail. Walking uphill to Ghodepani and on to Tatopani, we cross the Kali Gandaki river and then head up the awesome Kali Gandaki Gorge. The route to Ghasa affords a magnificent view of Annapurna South and squeezes through the steepest and narrowest part of the canyon. Tukche used to be an important trading village straddling the route to Tibet where merchants met to barter rice and barley from Nepal for salt and wool from Tibet. Marpha is another fascinating village with its stone houses and narrow paved alleys. We then walk through Jomsom to Muktinath and return to Jomsom for the flight to Pokhara.
