The Jomsom - Muktinath Deluxe trek remains below 4000 meters but leads to a remarkable journey where you can explore the Buddhist and Hindu culture, witness spectacular mountain views, enjoy bath at natural hot spring, the deepest gorge in the world, and visit Muktinath, Nepal’s most famous pilgrimage site with one hundred and eight stone taps and the marvelous temples. 

Jomsom - Muktinath deluxe tour is an easy, comfortable trek with choices of meals and quality accommodation are ensured. This trip is highly recommendable to those who are willing to experience hiking/trekking in the Himalaya without compromising in quality standards.
