Overview

Overview

Muktinath is a sacred spiritual site where people visit for spiritual liberation. Taking a holy bath in the 108 water fountains and a dip into the natural hot spring gets one rid of physical tiredness and brings spiritual joy. It is a beautiful mountain surrounding which is reached via Jomsom and Kagbeni. Jomsom is an astounding mountain town that is just 17 minutes scenic mountain flight from Pokhara. Nestled amidst the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range in the Himalayas, Jomsom casts an aromatic fresh mountain air with spectacular landscapes around. The walk to Kagbeni and then to Muktinath from Jomsom is a Himalayan blessing that brings enlightenment about the mountain life, culture, terrain and atmosphere. Walking along the sacred Kali Gandaki River is a joyful journey.

Trip Itinerary

Your trip day starts today when you arrive to Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Upon your arrival, you will be received by our representative at the airport. He will be carrying a signboard with our company’s name on it. Then you will be transferred to the tour hotel and checked in. A trip briefing will follow later today and the time will be notified to you by the representative who picks you up from the airport. We will come to meet and brief you about the trip at the fixed time. Until then just relax or explore a bit of surrounding.

We take you for a day tour of cultural heritage monuments in Kathmandu valley after breakfast. The tour will give you a mixed insight of history, culture, art, architecture and spirituality of Kathmandu valley. The sites include; Swoyambhunath aka Monkey Temple: The oldest of all sites in Kathmandu valley, Swoyambhunath is an important Buddhist spiritual site having the history over two thousand years old. This site has gained a popular name as monkey temple as this small forested hill is a good habitat for hundreds of monkeys. The visit there will heighten your spiritual and cultural experience. Patan City including Patan Durbar Square: A tour to medieval city of Patan gives you a great insight about ethnic Newari culture, Budhhist spirituality, religious harmony, art and architecture while you stroll around the charismatic alleys taking you to magnificent local community squares known as Bahal and eventually leading you to an incredible medieval palace square. The monuments and skill of the local artisans displayed on those monuments in the square will stun you with their unbelievable charm. Boudhanath Stupa: The largest of its kind in the world, this magnificent stupa is a very important center of faith for the people following Tibetan Buddhism. This place is nice Circular Square with the stunning stupa in the middle of it which spreads a lot of spiritual vibrations around the atmosphere.

We will drive to Pokhara by tourist bus in the morning after breakfast. After driving for about seven hours through scenic countryside of Nepal, we reach an eloquently charming city of Pokhara. The drive will have enough stopovers necessary on the way. Once we reach Pokhara, the charm of the city will capture our attention for a good feeling of being amidst the natural wonders from close up Himalayas to the surrounding lakes. A lake nearby our hotel is a nice place to take an evening stroll and the lakeside town has lots of options to dine. Have an option to fly to Pokhara at an extra cost.

Today is the first day of our trek which starts after a one and half hours’ drive. Starting from the place called Nayapul, the trek goes alongside the Modi Khola, a Himalayan river flowing down from the Annapurna, to Birethanti and to Hile and finally to Tikhedhunga. We spend approximately five hours including the lunch time before we reach Tikhedhunga where we will stay overnight today in a simple tea house.

The second day of trek, we trek to Ghorepani today after breakfast. It is an uphill walk all the way through and the trek passes through beautiful Himalayan foothills settings of villages and rhododendron forest. As we walk up on the well-trodden mountain trails, it brings some of the incredible things in our view including the majestic Himalayas. Once we reach to Ghorepani at the elevation of 2875 meters above sea level, we will be stunned by the real close up view of the Himalayan peaks. If we reach there for the sunset time, it will be one rewarding sunset experience.

Early morning hike to Poon Hill to witness a spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas and panoramic view of Himalayan range (weather permitting). Enjoy the sunrise and hike down to Ghorepani to have your breakfast to start the trek of the day to Tatopani. It’s going to be a long day today including the early sunrise hike to Poon hill. After about 7 hours walk, you will reach Tatopani to stay overnight.

Today is not a trekking day but is an equally tiring day as you are driving to Marpha on a bumpy mountain road. Stay overnight at the beautiful mountain village of Marpha.

Take your breakfast at the tea house and start the trek of the day. You will trek to Kagbeni today via Jomsom. You will experience the very rough yet beautiful mountain terrain on the trek.
