Jomsom Muktinath Trip is an experiential trip to the Lower Mustang region. The trek starts from the foothills and gradually advances towards the rugged terrain of lower Mustang and reaches up to Muktinath that is a sacred, spiritual center for many.  The Jomsom Muktinath trip provides the trekkers the opportunity to walk through diverse ethnic groups with their fascinating culture and wide variety of wildlife and vegetation to explore.

The trek begins at Nayapul and goes through incredible foothills. Encounters with several cultural and natural wonders, in the villages and forested part that the trek passes through, make the trek incredibly fascinating. As the trek goes higher in the elevation towards Muktinath, it is like entering a different world. A complete contrast between the low foothills and high Himalayan landscape is worth experiencing. Himalayan panorama, cultural riches, nature walking, mouthwatering local taste, wonderful hospitality and many other fascinating features make this trip a must-go-for-it trip.

Muktinath, the final destination of the trip, is a rich spiritual center where thousands of people go to seek for spiritual liberation. Apart from the spiritual source, Muktinath is a wonderful place in itself that boasts some stunning mountain landscapes. This trip is a beautiful mixture of adventure, nature, culture and spirituality.
