In a matter of a week you traverse from subtropical region to high altitude alpine region and without breaking your back and if this is not the best of the tours what is? The final destination of this tour is the Temple of Muktinath which is located above 3700 meters and on the extension of Tibetan Plateau in Nepal. This place is where the religion of Hinduism meets Buddhism.

Jomsom and Muktinath also known as the country beyond Himalayas, once very unreachable and expensive is now very accessible and in one’s reach in both terms. So, if you are sick and tired of your city life, carrying files and running around to complete chores or doing regular hikes and want to embark on a trip which does not ask much, you got to opt for Jomsom Muktinath tour in the district of Mustang.

This overland private tour to the most beautiful landscape in Nepal showcases you different terrain, the deepest gorge in the world, the natural hot springs of Tatopani, the mountains Dhaulagiri and Annapurna and most importantly the beautiful villages of Mustang which radiates an age old culture and tradition. Moreover, the village of Kagbeni which is located on the confluence of 2 rivers, Jharkot, which is a colourful village with patches of green, that looks like an oasis in the middle of the desert and last but not the least the monastery and rustic houses of Lubra. Jomsom Muktinath tour on a 4 wheel drive is an excellent holiday in Nepal!

Kathmandu - Pokhara
On this day we have our breakfast by 6:00 a.m. in the morning and head towards Pokhara on our off road sports utility vehicle. The SUV ride will take around 7 hours through curvy roads of hilly terrain with couple of breaks in between for snacks, lunch and pictures or anything interesting.

Pokhara - Jomsom
Another day on the trail but on a smaller and more winding road. The views however is better than the previous. The first section of the road that takes to Beni is nice and black topped and the second half of the road is completely bumpy, off road and has more of a natural touch. The entire trip takes 8 -9  hours. Overnight in Jomsom. 
Accommodation
  • Local Teahouse ( 1 Night)
Meals Included
  • 3 times meals during the trek (staple meal of Daal Bhat for lunch and dinner or  any one item from the menu.

Jomsom - Muktinath - Jomsom
Depending on your time we start for Muktinath. It is recommend to start early. If the day is clear, we would see Mt. Nilgiri right across Jomsom and at a stone throw distance. From here the road is not as bad as compared to the previous day. Only half an hour on the banks of Kaligandaki is a little painstaking. Furthermore, we see the villages of Kagbeni, Jharkot and Lubra on this day. The uphill drive to Muktinath takes around 1 and half hours and the way down takes an hour. We spend pretty good time up at Muktinath and observe the monastery as well as the main temple of Muktinath. Overnight in Jomsom.

Jomsom - Tatopani
We trace the same highway back but however, this time, we stop over at Tatopani. Tatopani means hot water in straight translation. The reason behind the whole village getting this name is because it has a natural hot water springs here which is rejoiced by the locals as well as the trekkers. We would make a stop at this very place to first cut the tedious journey into half and second, to wash off the aches from travel. Overnight in Tatopani.

Pokhara all day
It takes a lot of courage to complete the tour back to back on a vehicle and this is one reason why we have snugged in couple of breaks in between for your body to rejuvenate and back to straighten up. We wouldn't be planning anything extravagant but see few places of interest in the periphery. Overnight in Pokhara.
