Jomsom Muktinath Trekking is situated North of
Pokhara, Nepal's spectacular diversity appears at its finest The
deep valleys and high mountains encircling the giant Annapurna Himal
embrace a wide range of peoples and terrain, from subtropical jungle
to a high, dry landscape resembling the Tibetan Plateau. This is the
most popular trekking region, attracting over 75% of all trekkers
(more than 30.000 annually). It's also among the tamest areas, with
excellent lodges lining the main routes. Finding Nepal beneath the
flood of trekkers can be difficult, but the scenery and culture are
top-notch, and you can avoid the peak-season crush and still get
fine weather and views.
The views of the mountains are spectacular, and the route actually
crosses to the other side of the main Himalayan range for some
unusual views of the northern flanks.
