Jomsom to Muktinath Trekking Itinerary

Day 1Drive to Pokhara (820 m/ 2,690 ft) 200 km west of the Kathmandu Valley - 6-7 hrs

We start our scenic drive after early morning breakfast, traveling by tourist bus out of the valley and along the picturesque Trishuli and Marsyangdi rivers. The beautiful scenery along the way includes rivers, terraced fields, villages, and sights of the snowy mountains, including Ganesh and Manaslu peaks. Pokhara is a lakeside tourist paradise with many facilities for travelers.

Day 2Drive to Nayapul (1,050 m / 3,445 ft) 1½ hrs and trek to Tikhedunga(1,540 m / 5,050 ft) - 3-4 hrs

After a nourishing breakfast meal, we enjoy a short drive through the beautiful landscapes on the way to Nayapul, our trek starting point. Here we inaugurate our first steps on the trail. The route follows a pleasantly through the fertile jungle and terraced fields along a rushing river. We pass through several rural settlements and gradually reach Tikhedunga.

Day 3Trek to Ghorepani (2,860 m/ 9,385 ft) – 6-7 hrs

This day involves a vigorous ascent as we climb a long, steep series of stone steps on our way to Ghorepani. After the challenging steps, we journey through scenic villages and timberland. Although a difficult climb, along the way, we can take in astonishing views of the snowy peaks including the Annapurnas, Machhapuchhare, and Hiunchuli. Our destination is Ghorepani, a spectacular settlement located on a ridgeline.

Day 04Early morning hike to Poon Hill (3,210 m/ 10,525 ft) ¾ hr, then trek to Tatopani (1,200m / 3,940 ft) 4 hrs

Today we have an early start of the day as we begin before sunrise to ascend Poon Hill in time to view the sunrise on the Himalayas. The marvelous panoramic view from Poon Hill includes Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, the Annapurnas, and much more. After enjoying the views, we return to our lodge for a hearty breakfast and then follow a pleasant forest trail through rhododendron and villages with terraced farmland to eventually cross the Kali Gandaki river and arrive at Tatopani with nearby hot springs where we take a dip and savor the experience.

Day 05Trek to Ghasa (1,190 m/3,900 ft) – 5 hrs

The pleasant route heads north as we follow upriver in the Kali Gandaki Valley. We take the chance to explore newly developed trails away from the motor road. We will pass through scenic farmland with rural villages surrounded by terraced fields. We are hiking up the world’s deepest gorge, with Dhaulagiri, the world’s seventh-highest peak on one side, and Annapurna I, the tenth highest on the other. We ascend to the peaceful village of Ghasa, mainly populated by the Thakali people of this region.

Day 06Trek to Tukche(2,510 m/8,550 ft) – 5hrs

Today we continue our journey up the Kali Gandaki. We pass through peaceful forests to the large settlements of Lete and Kalapani and as we continue the journey north, the territory becomes noticeably drier and the lush vegetation and forests give way to more desert-like terrain. The culture, too, begins to change from the lowland Hindu style practices to a Buddhist lifestyle. Tukche is a scenic village with surrounding orchards and a monastery. The local brandy from Tukche is famous throughout Nepal and a hit with many trekkers.

Day 07Trek to Kagbeni (2,900 m/9,500 ft) - 5 hrs

We pass through the scenic village of Marpha, famous as part of the Annapurna Circuit for its apple pies before road building dramatically decreased tourism. We enjoy thrilling views of the surrounding peaks and unforgettable landscapes. Jomsom is the next town and district headquarters of Mustang. The route then follows a pleasantly up the arid valley of the Kali Gandaki River to the fort of Kagbeni, an ancient trade post with a Buddhist monastery, too. Kagbeni is just south of the restricted area of Upper Mustang.

Day 08Trek to Muktinath (3,855 m/12,635ft)- 4 hrs

We will make an exciting journey up the valley in the direction of the legendary Thorung La pass.

The trail passes ancient villages on the way to Muktinath, a temple that has long been a pilgrimage destination for Hindus and Buddhists alike. The temple’s walled complex has a Buddhist monastery and Hindu shrines, 108 bathing spouts, and even an ‘eternal flame’

Day 09Trek to Jomsom (2,720 m/8,915 ft)-4 hrs

We have reached our final day on the trekking trails. The journey heads down the valley as we lose elevation and gradually rejoin the Kali Gandaki River valley bottom and the trail back to Jomsom. Jomsom’s market area may seem like a big change from the serene trails and villages that we have visited. Rest and refresh at the lodge or explore Jomsom bazaar.

Day 10Early morning flight to Pokhara (820 m/ 2,690 ft) (and optional flight back to Kathmandu

We say goodbye to Mustang today and will have an early morning flight back through the Kali Gandaki Valley’s southern section. The scenic flight returns us to Pokhara.
