Jomsom Muktinath Trekking

The route follows the Kaligandaki valley between the soaring peaks of the Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri finally emerging to the north of the main Himalayan range on the dry desert like Tibetan plateau. The Kaligandaki river basin, the junction of the Indian plain and Tibetan highland includes wide varieties of races, religion, culture, climate, and topography hence creating an interesting trekking experience. The final destination is the holy temple of Muktinath, further days walk beyond Jomsom. Muktinath is a famous pilgrimage site for the Buddhists as well as for the Hindus where one will be able to see the Tibetan traders as well as the Sadhus from far South of India. You will gain a maximum altitude of 3800m at this place yet altitude sickness does not pose a real problem because of a gradual ascent.

Nepal is an extremely diverse country for its size. The temperature here can range from extremely hot (37-40C) in the lower Terai regions, to negative temperatures in the northern, mountainous regions. Feb-May & Sept-Nov are prime trekking times due to the lovely climate. There is ample sun in the day time, and only slightly chilly at night. Monsoon (June-Aug) can get very hot and humid-with showers usually in the early morning and late afternoon.
