Introduction

The Jomsom to Juphal will take you to the most isolated and remote parts of the Mid-West region of Nepal. It is a long and challenging trek but it takes you to the most beautiful and untouched areas of Nepal. This trek comes across more than eleven mountain passes, in which seven of them are elevated over 5,000m. People in the region practice Buddhist religion, the Bon Po, so this trek provides you an excellent opportunity to be part of the most unique and rare cultural practiced in the world.  The route consists of the desert-like landscape, barren ridges, deep canyons, eroded cliffs, and moraine valleys.

The trails connect remote villages, mountains and high passes are some of the most culturally interesting and spectacular routes during this trek.

We kick off our trek from Juphal, after thrilling flight over the snow-covered mountains and green hills from Nepalgunj. The route goes through several ups and downs and high passes. You can spot different species of wild animals like blue sheep, Himalayan Black bear, leopards, wolves and the snow leopards. . After walking through several villages for days, we finally visit the main highlights of this trek, Kang La, historical Shey Gompa, beautiful Shey Phoksundo Lake, cross Niwar Pass (5130 meters) and Sangda La (5300 meters). From here we will trek down to Juphal where we catch our flight back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
