Jomsom Muktinath trek is fascinating in so many ways. Be it the marvelous mountain flight that lands you at Jomsom or the spiritual vibrations at Muktinath temple and surroundings or the captivating mountain views, every attraction throughout the trek has overwhelming charm. Views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Nilgiri mountains and the cultural wonders of the villages along the trail make this truly a trip of a lifetime.
The trip explores diverse landscapes from greenery-filled lower elevation landscapes to barren high elevation landscapes. A certain section of the trail runs along the deepest gorge in the world, the Kali Gandaki River gorge where one can see the power of nature as the river gurgles down the amazing gorge. Sandy trails, rocky landscape, apple orchard, beautiful villages, and marvelous mountains give a uniquely unparalleled flavor to the trip.
To be honest you don’t have to be a runner to enjoy the trek. But the preparation will probably save you a lot of pain and suffering on the trail and help you to enjoy your experience there. The suggestions we have for physically preparing is to take good, long, brisk walks, preferably wearing a pack with a similar load that you’ll be carrying. Cycling and swimming are also great alternatives too, as is just about anything that gets your cardio working. Do some breathing exercise to get more oxygen into your lungs? Watch for signs of altitude sickness: symptoms include headaches, dizziness, sleeplessness, loss of appetite and breathlessness. Bring a supply of the medication Diamox for treatment; if symptoms persist, descend. Trekking to Everest Base Camp may not be the trip for everyone as it is quite a physically demanding experience, and when you combine high altitude with plenty of climbs, you may get a recipe for suffering. But normal, average, travelers can do Everest Base Camp trek.
Most of the tea houses do have western-style flushing toilets. But in higher elevation, you may also find the traditional type of toilet made of either a ceramic basin on the ground or few planks precariously positioned over a hole in the ground and it is situated outside the room.
Travel insurance & rescue when travelling to a remote destination like Nepal is strongly advised. It should provide adequate protection for the full duration of the tour. Your insurance policy must cover all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as helicopter rescue, cancellation, air ambulance, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and cover repatriation and personal expenses. If a client becomes ill, all hospital expenses, doctors’ fees, and repatriation costs are the client’s responsibility. For reliable travel insurance, we have the suggestion of some of the best insurance companies: Cover more or Europe assistance or Travel Direct- TID. We have an agreement with Helicopter Company to do the payment of Helicopter evacuation after we collect the payment with you once you have been rescued. And the reimbursement responsibility from your insurance company will go up to you. Be sure your policy specifically covers helicopter evacuation and does not exclude mountaineering or alpinism.
