Jomsom Muktinath Trek

This trek follows part of the famous Annapurna Circuit itinerary and reaches the Mustang border, by Kag Beni. North of Pokhara, Nepal's spectacular diversity appears at its finest.

This route is an exceptional way to discover all aspects of the Himalayas, and is the only low altitude passage between the northern and southern Himalayas. Dry, desert highlands are followed by rich green forests. The mountain viewing is brilliant and various ethnic groups of Nepal can be encountered along the way.
