We start late at 8.30 today after breakfast. The part of the trek from Muktinath till Kagbeni, is really different from the trek in the Marsyangdi side. Here, the climate is relatively dry, and the landscape looks like a desert. The area on the way from Muktinath to Kagbeni is full of ancient caves, and till you reach Jomsom you’ll be able to see wonderful geological forms around you. From Muktinath (3800 meters) the trail descends gradually towards Jarkot, a nice village with interesting houses and lots of green fields in the brown-looking area around. From Jarkot the trail keeps descending, and you can choose between two ways: one goes directly to Jomsom, and the other goes to Kagbeni; located 2800 meters high, Kagbeni is an interesting village, with stone houses and narrow alleys, and a green area of fields lying between the high mountains above. The village is located near the Kali-Gandaki River, and it is the first place you meet this huge river, still flows in a very wide valley at this area. Beware not to walk north of this village!! It is the border to Mustang area, which is usually closed to tourists and requires a very special permission to visit. Fail to do so – and you are inviting an enchanting rendezvous with the local policeman. The way from Kagbeni to Jomsom goes along the Kali-Gandaki River, as most of the trek in the next few days. The geological forms you’ll see on the way around you are really spectacular, and children on the way will offer you to buy black fossiles called “Salligrams”. Jomsom, located 2700 meters high is a big village. It has a small airport, and so – connected by air to Pokhara and Kathmandu for the following day. Although it is a comfortable place to stay in, we recommend to keep on and sleep in Marpha – a small and charming village, located 2660 meters high. It contains stone houses built on the mountain above the Kali-Gandaki river, with narrow streets paved with flat stones. There are few lovely guest houses there, with excellent food. O/N guest house
