Jomsom Muktinath trekking / Trekking to Jomsom Muktinath

Jomsom Muktinath Trek is one of the most favorite treks among the trekkers from almost all over the world. It captivates the travelers from the west and pilgrims from the east as it has long been a famous pilgrimage spot for both Hindus and Buddhists. Jomsom is a lovely town of Nepal situated at an elevation of around 2700m in Mustang, Nepal. It is the capital of Mustang and lies on the Annapurna Circuit. The Kali Gandaki River courses through the Jomsom City where you can locate a Black stone which is prevalent as Shaligram. In Hindu culture, the stone is renowned as a form of Lord Vishnu. It gives you the terrific perspectives of the pinnacles Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri.

This trek holds the essence of both the Hindu and Buddhist culture. To Hindus, it is sacred and known as the place of salvation, for all those who take a wash in the waters where they are guaranteed salvation after death. The Hindu god Brahma is thought to have lit the eternal flame that still burns at Muktinath today. To the Buddhists, it is seen as a place of true significance for it was here they believe the great sage Guru Rinpoche took meditation. Muktinath trek initiates in Beni and follows the Kali Gandaki river gorge, the deepest in the world. The journey up takes us through some very old and traditional Thakali settlements and into the lower regions of Mustang.

Kagbeni is a particularly rewarding place to stay at night as is Marpha famous for its apples and apple brandy. On the way back we celebrate the end of the trek with a bath in the hot springs of Tatopani. Undoubtedly, Muktinath is one of the gateways to one of the famous religious places of the Hindus. In the eyes of the Hindus, and from the perspective of the Hindus, Muktinath is worth exploring.

All in all the Jomsom Muktinath Trek is a perfect combination of cultural and geographical diversity. Moreover, this trek offers surreal views of landscapes along with quaint villages, cascading waterfalls, lush forests. You wouldn’t want to miss this fascinating trek.
