Jomsom Muktinath trek has for a long time been a favorite with both trekkers from the west and pilgrims from the east as it has long been a famous pilgrimage spot for both Hindus and Buddhists. To Hindus it is sacred and known as the place of salvation, for all those who take a wash in the waters here they are guaranteed salvation after death. The Hindu god Brahma is thought to have lit the eternal flame that still burns at Muktinath today. To the Buddhists it is seen as a place of true significance for it was here they believe the great sage Guru Rinpochhe (Padmasambava) took meditation. The region is also a rich source fossilized Ammonites known locally as saligrams, which are found all along the upper reaches of the Kaligandaki valley and are very much revered by Hindus as a symbol of fertility. Muktinath trek starts in Beni and follows the Kalighandaki river gorge, the deepest in the world. The journey up takes us through some very old and traditional Thakali settlements and into the lower regions of Mustang. The rock structure on the way to Muktinath is particularly fascinating as the plates of the lower hills continue to push upwards into the high mountains. Kagbeni is a particularly rewarding place to stay at night as is Marpha famous for its apples and apple brandy. On the way back we celebrate the end of the trek with a bath in the hot springs of Tatopani.
