    Jomsom Muktinath Trekking with ABC is three of the most famous and trekked regions in Nepal. This trek provides the greatest ethnic diversity in Nepal, which cannot be found anywhere else. Along this scenic path, you can pass through villages inhabited by various ethnic groups such as Thakali, Gurung, and Magar, with Tibetan culture predominating at higher elevations. There are several authentic Tibetan monasteries in this region. This hike requires prior walking experience as well as a decent level of physical fitness.

    Following a 6-7-hours drive or a quick flight to Pokhara, the scenic lake city west of Kathmandu, we explore several central tourist attractions before concluding with a fantastic view of the mighty Himalayas. On the preceding day, we fly to Jomsom and trek to Kagbeni. From Kagbeni, we climb steeply to Muktinath. It is one of the most famous Hindu holy sites with 108 taps for purified water.

     In Muktinath, many tribal Tibetans and Buddhists reside and visit the temple. You can also see underground fires that are continuously burning due to natural gas. Then walk through the windy and sandy Kaligandaki Valley to a charming town with a noble Thakali population, Marpha. Also, famous for apple production. Then descend to Kalopani, Tatopani, and Sikha. On the following day, trek to Ghorepani, and the next day hike to Poonhill early in the morning. 

    The sunrise over the skyline from Poon Hill is the pinnacle of this Ghorepani Poonhill trek, but, before that, the path crosses via picturesque villages, thick rhododendron forests teeming with birds, and deep sub-tropical valleys. We trekked to Tadapani on the same day. On the following day, we pass through Chomrong, Bamboo, Deurali, and finally at Annapurna Base Camp through Machhapuchhre Base Camp.

     On the way, we get a glimpse of majestic views of the Machhapuchhre along with Annapurna South, Mt. Hiunchuli,  Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli, and Gangapurna. Then retrace on the same trail passing Bamboo, then Jhinu Danda, where we can relax our bodies and sweep away our trek tiredness by the natural hot spring. The next day passes Tolkha, Phedi, then Pokhara, and the trip ends at Kathmandu.

    The Jomsom Muktinath via ABC 21 days trek is your thing if you are looking for an excellent trekking trail in Nepal. At any time of the year, you can go on this trek.

Day 14 Trek to Deurali (3230m/10,597ft, 4-5 hrs)

The trail gradually ascends with fewer steep sections until we move out in the sun with astounding views of the glacier river. Then a sheer rises via a drier forest before entering Hinku cave and then descends to a river before ascending to Deurali. The trail offers diverse flora and fauna, and the village scene is enchanting with rivers and waterfalls. Remaining time, enjoy the pictorial view, and take a rest.

Hiunchuli,  Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli, and Gangapurna, which is a delightful adventure. After spending some time observing the surroundings, we turn left and ascend smoothly towards Annapurna Base Camp. On the way, we can adore dramatic glimpses of the Himalayan horizon. 

After a few hour’s walk, we reach Annapurna Base Camp with a prodigious surrounding view of magnificent peaks. We then set camp there and spent the rest of the day there.

Day 16 Trek to Bamboo (2310m/7579ft, 7–8 hrs)

Today is the backtrack day. With the early morning view mostly witnessing the phenomenal sunrise view from the Base Camp, we retrace back. Passing through the tiny settlements, we head towards Bamboo. 

Since today is a long day trek, we have lunch on the way and witness the overwhelming views. Passing the forested area with bamboo and rhododendron trees, we reach Bamboo. Long day trek must be tiring, so we put our stuff in the lodge and take a rest. 

Day 17 Trek to Jhinu Danda (1760m/5774 ft, 5-6 hrs)

On this day of the trek, we backtrack on the same trail, which we took a few days ago from Chhomrong(ascending to Kuldighar pursued by a downhill to Chhomrong Khola and then walking on some stone steps). 

Once we reach Chhomrong, we take a break and then a few more steep descent, and we reach Jhinu Danda. Then, we walk downhill for a few minutes to enjoy the hot springs. If the weather is sunny, then we will have miraculous views on the way.

Day 18 Trek to Tolkha

You’ll have steel thighs by now, and you’ll be pretty good at holding your bag! Trek down to the river and cross it before continuing to Landruk and Tolkha.

Day 19 Trek to Phedi or Kande and drive back to Pokhara

Today is the last day of the trek, and it’s just a quick descent through Dhampus village from Pothana to Phedi – well done, you’ve made it! It’s just a 45-minute drive to Pokhara after lunch, where you’ll check into your hotel for a well-deserved shower and a post-trek party to celebrate life’s small pleasures.

Day 20 Fly/Drive back to Kathmandu

Since it’s a long day, we start the day early in the morning. After breakfast at the hotel, we drove back to Kathmandu on the same route which we took previously. After around 7 hrs, we reach the hotel and then check in and relax.

Or if you fly back to Kathmandu it will take less time to reach there and you also get a chance to explore Kathmandu valley. If you are flying then you will take a morning flight at 7:45 am and by 10 am you will check-in in at the hotel. So you will have enough time to do shopping or explore the valley or you can relax the whole day, it’s your choice.

In the evening, we will have a farewell dinner with the trekking crew, guide, and other staff. Enjoy the farewell dinner, and then have a sound sleep at the hotel of Kathmandu.
