This trek takes you through some of the traditional village of Nepal. Theses villages with flat roofs of the houses were the Trans -Himalayan commercial place between Tibet and India, traded by Thakali ethnic people. Typical villages such as Tukuche, Marpha and medieval Jharkot with a King palace and Bon- Po gompa. In fact, Muktinath is the important holy placefor Hinduist Pilgrims, Buddhists and ascetic Sadhus. They regard Muktinath as the sacred place of God Vishnu.The temple is situated in a gorge of trees with 108 water ponds from sacred spring water. We go down following the trails to the Kali Gandaki River with exceptional views.
The plane ride from Pokhara to Jomsom keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. The little plane flies in the gorges between huge Himalayan cliffs gaining altitude steadily in order to reach high station Jomsom. On this ride you get to see first hand how really high the Himalayas cliffs are. Tiny villages rest on hilltops of smaller cliffs. Each of the villages are so isolated that it’s at least three days walk to the nearest town that has a motorable road. The Himalayas also trap the monsoon clouds from getting to Tibet. Here, you get a first hand view of what that means. The Cliffs clearly raise much above the cloud cover. As a result the lower Himalaya is green and water rich sending all the water back to India while Tibet on the other side has eroded to be a dry plateau. From the cockpit view is the Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain in the world (8167m or 26795 ft).After half an hour flight from Pokhara will reach Jomsom airport,then start the joy of walking towards to your destination.
