Jomsom Muktinath trek is one of the popular short treks in Annapurna region. It is a part of the long Annapurna circuit trek that can be completed within 9 days. It is an easy trek suitable for all types of trekkers which reaches a maximum elevation of 3850 meters.

The trek is famous among local and foreign tourists due to its religious significance. Muktinath is a sacred temple for both Hindus and Buddhists as a reincarnation of Lord Bishnu. The worshippers who visit every year are believed to find Moksha, happiness, and prosperity.

The trek wanders through the different terrains with great climatic variations. We descend from high altitude, arid lands to the sub-tropical vegetation in the hills. The trip begins from Jomsom and passes through hills and terraced fields to finally reach Pokhara.

The other highlights of the trek are Ghandruk, Tatopani, Poonhill, and Ghorepani . Annapurna, Dhaulagiri (8167m) , and Fishtail (6993 m) are the major peaks of the trail. We get a glimpse of Nepali lifestyle in the Gurung and Thakali villages. The natural and cultural experiences with the exquisite mountain giants make the trip worthwhile.

Day 1
Day 1: Fly to Jomsom and trek to Kagbeni

From Kathmandu, we get to Pokhara either on a short flight or 6-7 hours long drive. From Pokhara, we take a flight to Jomsom (2713 m).  This flight allows us to view Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges and the gorge formed by them. We land in Tukuche and take the path along the valley to reach Jomsom.

Jomsom is a large settlement which also acts as the administrative center for the region. We cross the river to reach the east bank and then move towards Eklai Bhatti. From here, we take the path along the river that leads to Kagbeni. Kagbeni is located at the confluence of Jhong Khola and Kali Gandaki at 2810 meters. It is a Tibetan village which welcomes us with warm hospitality and unique cultures. We stay here overnight.

Day 2
Day 2: Kagbeni - Mukt

From Kagbeni, we climb up steeply along Jhong Khola valley and take a direct trail to Muktinath. As we continue, we reach Jharkot, a village that we explore for a while. Then we climb the trail to reach Ranipauwa with its tea-houses. Trekking further from there we reach our destination, Muktinath at 3802m.

Muktinath is a sacred pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists alike. Muktinath is a temple of Lord Vishnu whose devotees are believed to achieve Moksha. There are 108 sprouts with holy water flowing that surround the temple. Bathing in this ice-cold water is believed to cure people of all their illness and problems. There is also a Buddhist Gompa and another temple, Jwalamai among the grove of trees.  There is another temple with a spring and natural gas that sources the eternal flame in the temple. The earth-water-fire elements give the temple its religious significance. We stay here overnight.

Day 3
Day 3: Muktinath – Marpha

We take the trail along the Kali Gandaki valley to reach Marpha. We reach the village after 6 hrs of trekking which is famous for its Apple orchards. Apple brandy of Marpha is famous among all the tourists. We spend the night here.

From Marpha, we take a new trail through a Thakali village called Chokhopani. The Himalayan panoramic views comprise of Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Tukuche, and Annapurna among many others. After crossing a river we reach Kalopani. A downhill road from here leads to a bridge which finally takes us to Ghasa. We stay here overnight.

Day 5
Day 5: Ghasa- Tatopani

From Ghasa, our trail transitions into sub-tropical vegetation with banyan trees, poinsettias, and forests. The trail follows the river along a narrow gorge and then crosses a bridge.  We also come across a famous waterfall called Ruptse Chhahara. Then, the trail passes through villages to finally reach Tatopani.  We spend the night here.

Day 6
Day 6: Hot spring

We take a day off in Tatopani. The main attraction is the hot spring, which is a natural sauna. People dip in the spring and relax to relieve the exhaustion of their trips. We can relax with a good book or chat with other tourists about our adventures. As we relax, we are revitalized for the remaining of the trip.

Day 7
Day 7: Hot spring – Ghorepani

From Tatopani, we trek along traditional villages with terraced fields and farmlands. We make an ascent past rhododendron, magnolia and other flowers to finally reach Ghorepani. We are greeted by the evening sky with the mountains in the backdrop. It is a relaxing vantage point to spend the night.

Early in the morning, we take a detour to Poonhill which takes about 45 minutes. It is one of the best viewpoints in Nepal complemented by the golden, snow-capped Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri range, and Nilgiri. We hike back to Ghorepani and then make an easy walk through forests to reach Tadapani.

FAQs on Trekking in Nepal

Nepal is a paradise filled with natural flora and fauna. From the plain lands of Terai to the high Himalayas, there is diversification and singularity in every aspect. This is what makes Nepal so unique.

Due to variation in the topography and altitudes, Nepal has been famously spotted as a diverse Trekking Region. Nepal offers normal trekking routes starting from 2000m (Dhampus Trek, Ghandruk Trek) to 5500m (Everest Base Camp). And I can tell you that every single trek has its own peculiarity and adventure.

You may have a lot of queries regarding trekking in Nepal. In this article, I have tried to answer some of them.

Is it safe to travel in Nepal?

After the devastating earthquake in 2015, every visitor has had this common question in mind. And the answer is yes, it is safe to travel in Nepal. You can come here and enjoy without any hesitation or second thoughts.

After the quake, numerous reconstruction activities have been done and many are even going on. So, you will be witnessing a different outlook of the country. If you are willing, you can even lend a hand financially or through volunteering for reconstruction in the remote areas.

How is the current political scenario in Nepal?

The political situation in Nepal is facing a transitional shift. Nepal is in the process of adopting a federal structure of governance form.  From the political view, there are not many obstacles as you might think.

How can I get a Nepal visa for arrival?

You can get your arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Most of the people can obtain a visa on entry to Nepal. Some countries’ visa will need to be arranged prior traveling.

The price of visa depends on the number of days you will be staying. $25 is for 15 days from the date of issue, $40 for 30 days and $100 for 90 days tourist visa. You will need two passport size photos. Other documents are not required.

You can apply for an online visa through (http://www.online.nepalimmigration.gov.np/ ).

Do you have any pickup facility from the airport on arrival and departure?

Yes, our company has a pick-up facility as a complementary policy. At your arrival, our agency airport representative will pick you up from the airport. You can recognize us at the spot easily through our company’s name card.

And when you complete your trip, we will drop you back.

What type of insurance should I get? How can I get it?

We advise you to get your general travel and medical insurance cover from your respective country. In Nepal, you should buy medical and mountain evacuation insurance for traveling. But, we don’t offer mountain rescue insurance here.

Who can go on the trips?

Our trips are designed for everyone who has a love for outdoor adventure and cultural experience. Of course, some trips may be a bit difficult for people who are physically unfit.

In such cases, you need to choose only those trips that suit you best. Please contact for prior management.

What if I am a solo traveler? Is there any supplementary service for singles?

Not a problem at all. Many of our customers are traveling single. You also have the option to join a small group or another solo traveler.

Even if you are a single traveling woman, you need not worry. You will not face any kind of awkwardness.

Yes. There is an extra charge for traveling alone. Please contact us to find out more.

Do I really need a trekking guide?

According to recent changes in policy, trekking guides are almost mandatory for trekking in Nepal for everyone. It is to ensure safety and protection of all visiting tourists.

Plus, the journey will be a lot more informative and memorable with guides. S/he will be your friend and company during the journey.

But if you are well experienced and have trekked before as well, you may not require one. But if you are with a guide, it will be easy for you to tackle any problems during the trek.

Do I need a porter?

This part completely depends on your choice. If you think you are able to carry backpacks on your own, you can avoid them. If not, it is better to hire one.

You can have double benefits as well. As porters may have knowledge about the trails and settlements, you may not even require a guide.

Do you have tailor-made trips?

Yes. If there is any specific place that you want to visit that is not on our itinerary or if you want to combine trips or do multiple treks, we can surely arrange that. Send us your ideas and we will work with you to put together a customized trip of a lifetime.

When is the best time to visit Nepal for trekking?

Spring and Autumn season can be considered as the best time for trekking in Nepal.

October to November is the most popular time for trekking in Nepal. As it is the post monsoon period, the climate is clear and the mountains have an amazing view.

After that, March to May is the second most popular time. This pre-monsoon time has warmer weather with good visibility.

Besides, short tea house treks can be done during the winter season as well. I suggest you guys not to make plans for treks during monsoon and winter as far as possible.

How difficult is trekking in Nepal?

Nepal is known worldwide for its adventurous and interesting trekking spots. You certainly need to keep in mind that the journey will be challenging.

The toughness of the trekking depends on its altitude, grade, and location. There are different gradings for trekking such as; easy, medium, challenging, and demanding. You can make your choice depending on these grades.

Regarding time, you will be trekking 5 to 7 hours per day for altitudes ranging from 3000m to 8848m. But again, it will depend on the type of trek.

So no need to be afraid! You will enjoy extreme wilderness untouched by modern development. You will be grateful for the thrill and adventure of exploring the exotic nature.

How long will be the trekking period?

The period of trekking will depend on its type and grades.

As I have already mentioned about the grading of trekking, the most challenging treks will be for more than 4 weeks. The easy type of trek completes in about 1-3 days whereas the moderate will take about a week. The days taken cannot be exactly calculated as it might depend on weather conditions and other emergencies.

How fit should I be for the trekking?

You should be mentally and physically prepared for the trekking. The success of trekking wholly depends on you. We suggest you choose the trekking routes that suit your fitness level. Obviously, shorter treks are easier than longer ones. The longer treks will require a better standard of fitness.

So, be in your best physical form. Believe in yourself and move on!

What are tea houses and camping trekking? Is it possible here?

Teahouse trekking and camping trekking are the two general types of trekking in Nepal.

Teahouse trekking is the most popular type of trekking in Nepal. It is available in the trekking regions of Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, and Manaslu.

In this type, you will get good accommodation and fooding with a variety of items in the menu including Nepali Dal Bhat.

Camping trekking means making a full camp, carrying everything for the whole trip and getting along for the destination. In this type, you will fully cater for camping. You (or porters or packed animals) will carry all the camping gears including food, tents, sleeping bags, medical kits, etc.

You will be pitching your camps wherever suitable. You will be accompanied by a guide, cooks, porters, and sometimes a packed animal.

As compared to the tea house trekking, camping trekking is a bit difficult.

What types of food will be served during the trekking?

All kinds of food, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food will be mostly available. But, I recommend you to eat vegetarian during the trekking period. It will be more hygienic and physically helpful.

About food standards in tea houses, the fruit and vegetables are hygienic and well soaked in iodine before cooking. Food will be simple and homely reflecting the Nepali culture. Continental and international cuisine can be also served (depending upon the places).

Most of the lodges serve boiled and filtered water, safe for drinking. If you want, you can buy bottled mineral water as well.

Will there be any telephone/internet facilities at higher altitudes?

Most of the villages along the popular trekking routes have good coverage of cell phone and internet.

The Wi-Fi service is slowly becoming popular. You can also find telephones for international calls. But, these extra services will cost you extra money.

What do I need to carry on the trek?

If you hire a porter, he will carry your luggage and belongings. A porter will carry up to 50 kg of load.

You should remember to carry a small day-sack, fleece jacket, waterproof clothes, warm hat, sunhat, sun-cream, water bottle, first aid kit and water purification kit. Besides, you can carry any other stuff you think is important.

What is AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness)? Can I suffer from AMS?

Altitude sickness is one of the major problems you may face during trekking in higher altitudes. It is also referred to as AMS. AMS is a kind of dizziness due to failure to adapt to the surrounding.

A severe headache, nose bleeding, rapid heartbeat, instant respiration, nausea, vomiting, coughing etc. are the common symptoms of AMS. Your lungs and brain will be the most affected during AMS. If you get any such indications, you have to be immediately moved to lower altitudes.

The chances of AMS cannot be predicted exactly. It sometimes depends on the surrounding and on your diet as well.

I recommend you to take proper advice and medication regarding AMS before you hit the road.

What happens in the case of emergency?

If you get in an emergency, we are ready to reach out and help you anyhow. Plus, our guides are properly trained to tackle such situations.

In the case of physical problems, the guides will help you out with their basic knowledge. If a serious emergency occurs, rescue operation by helicopter is available. Their expenses will be recovered from your insurance company.

Additionally, you have to be mentally and physically prepared for everything that might come on your way.

What currency should I bring?

What essential documents/items do I need to bring along with me?

You must bring a valid passport, a copy of your travel insurance, cash, necessary tickets, emergency contact numbers of insurance and family members and the required medications you will/might need.
