Jomsom Muktinath Trekking is an exciting trek in the Annapurna and Mustang regions of Nepal with an amazing route that leads you, among others, to the famous Muktinath Temple. Exactly, it is one of the most fascinating journeys to experience the different cultures of the Annapurna region in one trek. We trek in the beautiful Annapurna region and gradually enter the Mustang region. Jomsom is located at an altitude of 2700m in Mustang District and is also famous with the name as Dzong-Sampa.
The diverse Nepalese landscape combined with the rich culture of its people makes this trek all the more rewarding. On our Jomsom Muktinath Trek, we also walk on trails along the Kali Gandaki gorge which is the deepest gorge on earth. We can locate fossils at the banks of Kali Gandaki River that is the sacred rocks for Hindus to hope. On one facet lies the Annapurna mountain variety and on the other aspect is Dhaulagiri. Between the two ranges, there are views of eight of the 20 highest mountains in the world.
This trek can be a unique enjoy for all fit visitors. And then visit Muktinath Temple which is an important place of pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists alike. Dipping our bodies into the hot spring at Tatopani will also be a pleasing experience. In the end, we pass via many charming Thakali villages referred to as Marpha widely known for the garden of apples, apricots, and peaches. You possibly can revel in with the diverse lifestyle of various groups along with Brahmins, Chhetris, Thakalis, Magars, Gurungs and the lovely landscapes. Therefore, this trek is the ideal opportunity for you to witness the diversity among the people and their customs being the cultural and spiritual trip.
If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
