Trekking Destinations > Annapurna > Jomsom Muktinath Trek
The Annapurna region of Nepal, a couple of hundred kilometres northwest of Kathmandu, is reknowned for its blend of undisturbed nature, spectacular mountain views, and embracing culture. The Annapurna Circuit is typically rated as one of the "top 20" trekking experiences worldwide...Now that is an understatement!
The Jomsom-Muktinath trail is often covered with trains of donkeys and ponies traveling to Mustang and other areas in the north of Nepal. Some major attractions along this route include typical Mustang villages such as Tukuche, Marpha and Jharkot with its medieval King's Palace and Bonpo Gompa. The deep gorge, Kaligandaki is another major landmark. Muktinath is a popular sacred place for Hindu, Buddhist Pilgrims and ascetic Sadhus. The temple contains 108 taps which transport water from sacred water springs.
