Jomson trek

Jomson Trek
Duration: about 9-11 days
Lenght: approx. 180 km
Max. Elevation: 4000 m
Difficulty: medium
Season: October to May
This classic lodge trek starts with a long climb to Ghorepani and then drops down in the worlds deepest valley at Tatopani. Behind the Himalayan range you reach the Tibet-like region of lower Mustang.

The trek from Pokhara to Muktinath boasts some spectacular mountain views, and the route crosses to the other side of the Himalayan range. This is a good trek if you wisth to avoid high altitudes. Turning around in Kagbeni and leaving out Muktinath, you don't cross an altitude of 3000m and still have a trek stenuous enough to be stimulating.

To avoid the long climb to Ghorepani, you can start the trek from Beni and walk up the Kali Gandaki to Tatopani, but then you will miss the spectacular view from Poon Hill.

Most recently, a dirt road passable by jeeps and motorbikes has been forged through the Kali Gandaki to Jomson. This means that a big part of the trek is now along a road (from Tatopani to Jomson). There are efforts to find a route to Jomson avoiding the road. As soon as its possible to follow that way, I will show you this.
