Holiday Overview

Pokhara - Muktinath Trip

The Pokhara-Muktinath trip is a thoughtfully designed trip taking a pilgrimage, spiritual, Mountain experience, nature, and cultural factors into sheer consideration. It begins with a short flight to Pokhara, which offers ample opportunity to see towering Himalayan peaks. A guided sightseeing tour in Pokhara enables one to explore major attractions and highly revered spiritual sites of Pokhara. The mountain flight to Jomsom from Pokhara is an experience of its own. The climatic conditions and landscapes of Kagbeni, Muktinath, and Jomsom are reminiscent of the Tibetan plateau. After having a darshan and performing rituals at Muktinath and Kagbeni, we will take a jeep ride back to Jomsom for an overnight stay.
