Tour Overview

 Jomsom Trek along the Kali Gandaki river valley to Muktinath is one of the popular treks in the Annapurna region. There are three ways to reach Jomsom from Pokhara. You can either walk through culturally rich villages like Ghandruk, Ghorepani, Poonhill, Tatopani, Ghasa and Kande or by road. Recently constructed roads connects Jomson to Pokhara and vice-versa. 

In monsoon the road gets slippery, muddy and landslides might occur. So, we suggest you to skip road journey during monsoon. The last option is by flight. From Pokhara, there are daily flights available to Jomsom. But sometimes there is flight delays or cancellations due to clouds and strong winds. Mainly, it occurs in late spring and monsoon season. In order to avoid bad weather, all the flights to and from Jomsom operate only in the morning.

Jomsom is the gateway for trekking to Muktinath and Lo-Manthang. Also, considered an ending point for treks from Manang. Jomsom way half way point of the Round Annapurna trekking; but after the road construction it has now become a terminal point. 

On Jomsom trek you will enjoy a wide array of landscapes from sub-tropical rhododendron and oak forests to high, dry landscape similar to Tibetan Plateau. You will walk through the Kali Gandaki valley, the deepest gorge in the world, Kagbeni, a Tibetan influenced village dotted with prayer wheels or a Buddhist monastery and chortens. While trekking, you will also enjoy the great views of Annapurna mountain range and Dhaulagiri.

I went trekking with Ram around the Annapurna Mountains, and really the only way to find out how good it was is going there and doing it. You can be sure it will be a safe trip. Ram takes care of his clients, I felt safe even in the most unfammiliar environment. My worries became taking pictures, if any problem possibility came up Ram had already taken care of before…
