    Jomsom Muktinath Tour enlightens you on visiting one of the holiest of all places of both Hindu and Buddhist religions to sacred sites of Muktinath Temple. This Muktinath temple is believed to be more than thousands of years of history, as local people of Mustang and historians can remember.

    Holy Muktinath Tour is of great delights and interest that leads from the fabled and scenic city of Pokhara toward Jomsom and Muktinath.  Pokhara is blessed with the natural wonders of the high Annapurna Himalaya and majestic Machhapuchhre Himal known as Fish-Tail Peak.

    Start our marvelous pilgrimage journey from Kathmandu by visiting interesting places around world heritage sites with ancient temples and Stupas. Then head towards Nepal Mid-West at Pokhara, where a scenic-short flight takes you to Jomsom town.  Jomsom, a headquarter town of Mustang district and home to Thakali people is located on a shelf of Kaligandaki River.

    From Jomsom, take an exciting drive in four-wheel jeeps to reach much higher to our destination at the holy Muktinath Temple premises. Over there you can marvel at great views of the Dhaulagiri range of mountains.

    The Muktinath is regarded as the most sacred pilgrimage place for the Hindu religion where the mass flow of pilgrims visits from all parts of Nepal and India. Here, impressive natural elements are displayed in miraculous form-flickering blue flames of natural methane gas burning on water, stone, and earth. In an offering, it is said to have been first lit by Brahma, the Hindu creator.

    Muktinath purity goes back into the antiquity of thousands of years back when you can observe the sight of natural power. On a route around Kaligandaki Valley, pilgrims search for black glossy fossils called Shaligram (ammonite), found in abundance around Kaligandaki River banks. On the outside, they look like small rounded rocks but split open revealing the imprint of ammonites formed 140 million years ago. Because of its wheel-like shape, the Shaligram is associated with the Hindu god Vishnu.

    After a peaceful and great photographic session at Muktinath, our journey leads you back to Jomsom for a scenic flight to beautiful Pokhara. And onward, we will be heading towards Kathmandu city with the marvelous experience of the Jomsom Muktinath Tour.

    Best Seasons: March to May and September to December months are the best times for the Muktinath tour. Except for the monsoon from mid-June to mid-September, Muktinath Yatra is done. March to May best time for clear views till the afternoon with fantastic views of mountains. The day will be pleasant with cooler morning and nighttime.

    October to December is yet another best time for a pilgrimage tour with clear views of peaks. But short sunlight hours can be cold in the morning & night time in Jomsom and Muktinath on overnight stops.
