Jomsom

Amidst the high Himalayan settlement of Tibetan – speaking people, at an altitude of 8,800 feet, is a serene village called Jomsom. It is among the very few places in Nepal from where the Himalayan peaks can be admired at such a close range. Giant peaks like Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Range seem almost at touching distances. Jomsom is not only the most popular trekking destination in Nepal but also the gateway to Upper mustang “Kingdom” within the Hindu Kingdom of Nepal. Jomsom is also the gateway to the Muktinath temple that holds great religious significance to both Buddhist and Hindus.
