Annapurna Jomsom Trek

44

This outstanding Annapurna Jomsom trek investigates the diverse cultural qualities of the Annapurna locale established after the old exchange of Tibetan ethnicity along the bank of the Kali Gandaki. Annapurna Jomsom trek course begins from Pokhara valley passing through the famous Poon Hill for the best sunrise view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges through the wonderful natural settlements and enchanting woodlands.

Then we go towards Besisahar walking through the subtropical valley of the Marsyangdi waterway assorted with rice fields, bamboo woodlands and animal troops. Here we dive into a different universe of individuals with Mongolian confronts, ethnic houses with traditional rooftops and high valleys of Tibetan ethnicity. Over and over the way passes Mani dividers, holy places and entreaty to God wheels – indications of the present Buddhism in this locale. After the towns Braga and Manang we climb orderly tough until we achieve the 5,416m high Thorong La Pass. Several entreaty to God banners blow in the wind – some are disturbed and sun-bleached while others are yet recently and in enlightening hues. The trail leads through pioneer place of Muktinath and Kagbeni.

The trek closes in Jomsom, where we take the plane back to Pokhara. In the wake of reaching towards Jomsom the trail leads through pioneer place of Muktinath and Kagbeni into the valley of Kali Gandaki which is indented profoundly between the summit of the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna. The Tatopani with its hot springs we leave the Kali Gandaki gulley behind us and trek up to Ghorepani and further to Poon Hill (3,200 m), where we appreciate a inspiring panoramic Himalayan view. In the end we pass through the lovely Gurung towns of Ulleri, Hille and Birethanti we return to Pokhara and finally to kathmandu.
