Kali Gandaki Valley Trek 11 Days.

Kaligandaki Valley (Jomsom - Muktinath) area is situated in north of Pokhara. One of the famous names of Himalayan Rivers, the Kali Gandaki raises in Mustang an enclave of Nepal poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalaya. Here it is a flat and braided river flowing in an arid open valley and cuts one of the deepest gorges in the world between Mt. Daulagiri height 8167m to the west and Annapurna 8091m to the east.

Our trek begins by crossing the green, fertile foothills of the Himalaya, through small farming villages, terraced hillsides, rhododendron and bamboo forests, before ascending to the pass at Ghorapani. An early morning excursion to the top of Poon Hill (3193m) will provide splendid dawn views of the Kali Gandaki Valley, Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Mountains. Our route alongside the mighty Kali Gandaki River passes between Annapurna 1 and Dhaulagiri, both over 8000 metres high. Described as the world’s deepest valley, the Kali Gandaki has for centuries been utilized as a major trading route through Mustang to the borders of Tibet. At Tukuche we head off the main trail and head to the spectacular Dhaulagiri Icefall. As we continue north towards Mustang the scenery changes dramatically, the riverbed widens and the landscape becomes barren, dusty and much drier. On reaching Muktinath we explore its famous Hindu temple and make an excursion to the base of the Thorung La Pass. Returning to Jomsom, we will take our flight back.

Well, Ghorepani means (horse water), and it does not doubt a welcome watering stop for the teams of horse, Mules and ponies that carry loads between Pokhara and Jomsom. The exotic horse/mules caravans, with melodious bells that echo over great distance and wondrous plumes and headdresses on the lead horse, are reminiscent of ancient Tibet. Herded by Tibetan people, who shout up and down the trail, they lend a unique touch to the Jomsom trek.
