Jomsom Muktinath Trek is a moderate 13-days trek that ventures into deep valleys of Jomsom, Muktinath, and even Annapurna trail itself.
The trail follows the ancient routes of high Himalayas through numerous attractive villages and trading bazaars and the naïve yet honest locals. This path was the main trade route for Tibetan traders and the locals for their business.
The ancient footpath connects local communities, pass through blooming rhododendron forests, and diverse fauna species. Narrow and abrupt gorges along the bank of Kali Gandaki River is totally awestruck. Thus, this uphill and downhill adventure is a perfect excursion to experience the real wilderness.
