Nepal is a country where each temple, stupa, gumba, and idol has its own legend about the supernatural power of its deities. People’s belief in these deities has resulted in Nepal being one of the most famous pilgrimage destinations for both Hindus and Buddhists. Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, Gosaikunda, Muktinath, Lumbini, and Namo Buddha are some of the major religious sites in Nepal. We offer one of a kind Pilgrimage Trek in Nepal; a journey that is both spiritual and adventurous.
Nepal is home to the most important places of pilgrimage in Buddhism (Buddhist tour). One of these places is Lumbini where Gautam Buddha was born. Other pilgrimage sites of religious significance to the Buddhists are the Boudhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath Stupa, Kapan Monastery, and Namo Buddha.
The trek begins in Sundarijal and follows a splendid hiking trail as you cross rivers and forests, and walk mostly uphill before you reach the holy lakes. According to Hindu mythology, the holy lakes of Gosainkunda were created by Lord Shiva’s Trishul (three-pointed weapons) so that he could drink its cold water and quench the heat that he felt in his throat after he drank poison from Samudra Manthan.
This trek explores a lot of beautiful places within the Annapurna region and it is on the tenth day that we reach Jomsom. Jomsom, the headquarters of the Mustang district is sometimes referred to as Dzongsam or the New Fort. The small town that extends over the banks of the Kali Gandaki is set against a backdrop of the towering Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri peaks. We also visit Ghorepani and the famous Poon Hill on our way to Jomsom.
