The route follows the Kaligandaki valley between the soaring peaks of the Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri finally emerging to the north of the main Himalayan range on the dry desert like Tibetan plateau. The Kaligandaki river basin, the junction of the Indian plain and Tibetan highland includes wide varieties of races, religion, culture, climate, and topography hence creating an interesting trekking experience. The final destination is the holy temple of Muktinath, a further day’s walk beyond Jomsom. Muktinath is a famous pilgrimage site for the Buddhists as well as for the Hindus where one will be able to see the Tibetan traders as well as the Sadhus from far South of India. You will gain a maximum attitude of 3800m at this place yet altitude sickness dose not pose a real problem because of gradual ascent. From Jomsom, you can make your return trip by flight or you will have to retrace your steps down the Kaligandaki Valley.
