Short Jomsom trekking is a scenic and serene trek in the midst of the Annapurna region and, is well known for its baked landscapes with strong winds. Well, the Jomsom trekking is fantastic, however, the major highlights of this trip are the superb views of massif Nilgiri and a visit to the holy and enchanting Muktinath temple. Jomsom is the district headquarters of Mustang region and hence, all the government offices of the district are present here with a comparatively high population. The Kali Gandaki valley proudly sits beside the main bazaar with plenty of street vendors and children playing around. This region is decorated by the small airstrip with regular flights from Pokhara to Jomsom. Since decades, locals here typically the Thakali people have been serving exotic trekkers with a welcoming smile. Get a chance to experience the unique culture and tradition of the Thakali inhabitants in this ethnic place. In order to accommodate and serve the thousands of trekkers, plenty of decent guest houses have been built in the region.
