Jomsom-Muktinath Trek

Fascinating trek

Muktinath is one of the most enjoyable trekking destinations in Annapurna Region and lies in the district of Mustang. A popular pilgrimage site both for Hindu and Buddhist, Muktinath has a temple dedicated to the lord Vishnu. There is also a Buddhist Gompa here. Within the temple premises are the 108 water spouts from which the holy water flows continuously.  An eternal flame fed by natural gas is another unique thing about Muktinath.

The highlights of this trek include beautiful mountain scenery, pristine forests, diversity of flora and fauna. During this trek, you can also interact with the warm hearted locals of the region whose rich and varied customs might be fascinating to a foreigner.
