Trip Introduction

This is one of the ancient trekking routes connecting to Mustang and Tibet. With maximum altitude of 3,900 meters, this route offers comfortable hotels and  lodges run by Thakali and Gurung people.

From Kathmandu you can choose 200 Km long road way or half an hrs’ flight to Pokhara. Trekking to Jomsom starts here in Pokhara that ascends towards Annapurna foot hills through picturesque rhododendron forest and climb to Poon Hill at dawn. There we enjoy the panorama of the mountain ranges- Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. Then we proceed towards the deepest valley in the world- The Kaligandaki Valley, which is situated between the Himalayan giants Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m). Trekkers can enjoy chatting and smiles of many ethnic community peoples like Guring, Thakali, their centuries long costumes and traditions while passing through ancient villages – Tukuche, Ghasa, Marpha, and Jomsom. After Jomsom we reach vast and wonderful  landscape of Mustang. Crossing through the Throngla Pass, we visit one of the popular pilgrimage center ‘The Muktinath Temple’. Spending a day to enjoy villages and mountain views there, we take a flight back to Pokhara from Jomsom.

Our trip planner and the travel team provided us a worldclass experience for a 6 day trip to Iceland. From the initial planning stages and throughout the trip, our trip planner stayed in touch to make sure we had everything we needed. Our guide did a great job of showing us the sites and sharing information about the history and culture of Iceland. We would highly recommend this travel team to anyone who wants to experience this beautiful country and its people in a bespoke way.
