Kaligandaki Valley (Jomsom – Muktinath) area is situated in the north of Pokhara. “Ghorepani” where we spend one night before descending Tatopani offers some of the most dramatic close-up views of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world. In addition, this region is known for some of the most abrupt altitude variations experienced anywhere
A magnificent sunrise at Poon Hill, before descending Tatopani (hot spring) and then we encounter the world’s deepest gorge, where the powerful Kali Gandaki River has cut deep through the Himalayas between the massive peaks of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, view of wonderful Dhaulagiri Icefall. As we trek up the Kali Gandaki valley we pass through the traditional and prosperous villages of Tukuche, Ghasa, Marpha, and Jomsom. The Thakalis, a traditional trader, have converted their charming and wonderfully clean homes into trekker’s lodges and are well known as one of the most gracious and successful inn-keepers in Nepal. Past Jomsom we reach the arid Tibet-like landscape of Mustang. At Muktinath, set below the Thorung La pass, we have a day to explore the temple and villages and enjoy wonderful mountain views. Finishing our trek along with one of the major pilgrimage and trade routes Jomsom between India and Tibet we experience local traders, and Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims making the end of our adventure as amazing as the beginning.

We did the 12-day itinerary trekking to Everest Base Camp. We booked it all from England and communicated with the owner Hari via email. Such a nice family that owns and runs this business. Very friendly and welcoming. We had loads of cups of tea with them in their shop in Thamel before and after our trek.
