Overview

Jomsom is situated North of Pokhara, Nepal’s spectacular diversity appears at its finest, the deep valleys and high mountains encircling the giant Annapurna Himal embrace a wide range of peoples and terrain, from subtropical jungle to a high, dry landscape resembling the Tibetan Plateau. This is the most popular trekking region, attracting over 75% of all trekkers (more than 30.000 annually). 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.

The views of the mountain are spectacular, and the route actually crosses to the other side of the main Himalayan range for some unusual views of the northern flanks.
