Kali Gandaki Valley Trek is also known as Jomsom Muktinath Trek and Muktinath Pilgrimage Trek. It is located in the lower Mustang Region. It is a relatively easy trek. Muktinath Temple is around 3800 meters, so acclimatization is needed to avoid mountain sickness. Trekkers can see different snow-capped Himalayas and diverse flora and fauna. During the Trek, you walk through the world's deepest gorge- Kali Gandaki.
Barley, rice, millet, potatoes, and other seasonal vegetables are grown in the Trekking Area. The first part of the Trek is Poon Hill. It is the best viewpoint of white peaks, hills, and gorges in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri region. Walking through the rhododendron forest, you reach Tatopani (natural hot spring). After heading through the bank of the Kali Gandaki River, the jaw-dropping rock walls make the trek awe-inspiring. The sacred stone (Shaligrams) is found at the bank of the River. Several waterfalls lie on the way. Reaching Kalopani and Marpha, you move towards Kagbeni, a gateway to Upper Mustang. The apple orchard in Kaligandaki Valley Trekking is lovely. Marpha is known as the delightful apple capital city of Nepal, and they also make Brandi, cider, and Apple pie from apples. Thakali people from Thakkhola are renowned for serving delicious meals. Typical Nepali food- Dal Bhat is what they offer the most delicious. Muktinath Temple is a step ahead from here. Muktinath Trek is equally famous for the pilgrimage devotees. Hindu and Buddhist followers conduct this journey to avoid their lifetime sins. The tour ends in Jomsom after you retrace from Muktinath.
