Muktinath Trek (10 Days)

Muktinath Trek
Situated north of Pokhara, Jomsom Muktianth trek, this is one of the most popular trekking regions. It's also among the tamest areas, with excellent lodges lining the main routes. Finding Nepal beneath the flood of trekkers can be difficult, but the scenery and culture are top-notch, and you can avoid the peak-season crush and still get fine weather and views. Muktinath is of religious importance for both Hindus and Buddhists. The main shrine is a pagoda shaped temple dedicated to lord Vishnu; there are 108 water spouts around the wall of temple.
