Mukti means Salvation and Nath means God and Nirvana. So it holds great significance for all spiritual people in the south Asian sub continent. Muktinath (the provider of salvation) has been one such holy site, where thousands of devotees flock for attaining the much sought after moksha( freedom) from the cycle of birth and rebirth.
Jomsom is a serene village located amidst the high Himalayan settlement of Tibetan-speaking people. It is among the very few places in Nepal from where the Himalayan peaks can be admired at such a close range and yet from a safe altitude of only 8800 feet. Giant peaks like Nilgiri, Tilicho and Dhaulagiri seem almost at touching distance. Jomsom is not only the most popular trekking destination in Nepal but also the gateway to Upper Mustang. Jomsom is also the gateway to the Muktinath temple that holds great religious significance to both Buddhists and Hindus.
This trek covers the half of Annapurna Circuit Trek and is a Pilgrim Trail to the holy temple and the religious shrines of Muktinath at 3800m. The focal point of the complex is the pool and its 108 brass waterspouts which pour forth sacred water where the pilgrims bathe in the frigid waters and visit the temple. This is the famous pilgrimage site for Hindu, Buddhist Pilgrims and ascetic Sadhus. The diverse landscapes and cultures to be found along the trek route give a marvelous insight into the way of life of rural Nepalese people. The route to Jomsom up the Kali Gandaki River passes through a gap in the Himalayan barrier in the bottom of the deepest river canyon in the world. The valley of the Kali Gandaki River runs between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Mountain. It offers good views of the mountains with spectacular and varied scenery on the way. The people of this part of Nepal are a mixture of Gurung and Magar ethnic groups in the lower stretches of the Kali Gandaki, Thakalis around Jomsom and people of Tibetan roots, the Lobas around Muktinath.

Group Size Notes

Your Fellow Travelers
When we travel in a group there are people from around the world of different ages who are multi lingual, multi cultural and multi racial. You are requested to understand the benefits may be some of the frustrations of traveling in a group. We have found time and time again that the very best trips we operate are those where the dynamics within the group work well – this takes just a little effort on your part.
Welcome breakfast and fare well dinner are in Kathmandu hotels. Foods are provided on in a tea house or guest house in the mountain, there are variety of choice of local meal as well as continental even PIZZA and Sizzler. We also give more eating flexibility, groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other’s company. Our leader will be able to suggest favorite restaurants during your trip. Included breakfasts will usually be Asian style consisting of noodles or congee (rice porridge) or bread, hass brown and eggs of any style. Wide range of vegetarian foods is found, although in some places choices are limited. While trekking in remote regions food will be served plentiful and made of fresh local ingredients.
Private Bus, Car and Van
All local flights are included in the cost of our tour unless otherwise noted and will be given to you prior to the flight departure.
We believe single travelers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travelers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travelers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

What to Take
What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the places or regions you are planning to visit. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible and keep the weight of your bags between 15-20kg/22-30lb. Suitcases are not recommended for trekking and mountaineering because it is hard to handle by the support Sherpa while in the mountains and also some of our trips have non support Sherpa porter. Most travelers carry a backpack or rolling bag of small to medium size (no XXL ones please!) as they need to carry by the porters in the mountain although you have chance to leave some of your bags at the hotel you are staying. You will also need a day pack/bag to carry water, cameras and other electronics like iPods and mobile phones. If your trip involves overnights in home stays, villages or camping, Alpine Club does not provide the sleeping bags or warm Jackets. You usually have to rent sleeping bags if needed instead of bringing them from home.

Alpine Club reserves the right to exclude any traveler from all or part of a trip without refund if in the reasonable opinion of our leader they are unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or rest of the group.
Safety and Security
Many national governments provide regular updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government’s advice for their latest travel information before departure.
We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, travelers’ cheques, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewellery at home – you won’t need it while travelling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes which are the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.

It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility’ is required to undertake our easiest tour programs. Travelers must have the good level of fitness for mountain trekking 3400m and above, at least walking 7-8 hrs each day at high elevation. And for trek, climb and mountain expedition you are requested to have the complete medical approval from your travel doctor to attend the trip.

Being a responsible adventure travel company is at the heart of what Alpine Club is all about. From the start, Alpine Club has been committed to offering low-impact travel that benefits traveler and host alike. We are responsible holiday planner to Himalaya areas; we conserve the environment and improve the welfare of local people to the region we travel. Alpine Club plan and organize our operation to maximize the net benefit for the poor people by empowering and by training on skills development that help them to take part on different tourism activities. We have strong policies to employ the local people and use the local products as much as possible while we travel. We are guided by “Take a photograph & leave zero foot print” and always travel that maximizes the benefits to local communities, minimizes negative social or environmental impacts and help local people conserve fragile cultures and habitats or species. Nature is not just for current generation what we firmly believe that meets the needs of present travelers and host regions while protecting and enhancing opportunities for the future.
We warmly welcome you all to take part this sustainable adventure travel and a couple of tips to start you thinking about traveling sustainably.
-Please bring rechargeable batteries, a battery charger (and plug adapter if necessary). Batteries are incredibly toxic and many places that we travel do not have proper disposal facilities. Rechargeable are best but if this is not possible we recommend that you bring any used batteries back home with you for proper disposal.
-Please ask before taking pictures. Just as you would not like to have a stranger come up to you and take a picture of you while sitting on your front porch either do the locals of the places that we visit. As you can imagine pictures of their children are also not appreciated.
Associated Children Education Project
Alpine Club is not just a business firm; it has a strong policy committed to ensure that we are socially responsible as well. We are helping per person per day US$1 donation to the charity www.cennepal.org.np from each person each trip.
How you can help?
There are numbers of children who are still away from the opportunity of getting educated in this 21st Century. Our aim is to provide these children a great opportunity to educate them and we warmly welcome you if anyone interested to help for sponsoring a child 80-100US$ for a child for one year.
Respect Local Dress
In Nepal the standard dress is more conservative than it is back home. In predominately while you travel in Nepal, India, Bhutan and Tibet we ask that you dress respectfully and avoid very short shorts/skirts and singlets/tank tops when visiting temples or mosques or other holy sites or local villages.
We are not 100% but we do 110% towards your complete satisfaction in order to be sure that you get the best of what you have paid for and expect. After your travel, we want to hear from you!
