INFORMAZIONI SU JOMSOM (da internet - e altri siti sul nepal)

Jomsom, (2,713m) is important for its strategic position along the popular Around Annapurna (Circuit) Trek route. It is also the starting point for many interesting treks like the Kagbeni, Marpha, Muktinath and Mustang treks. The Jomsom Trek is known for splendid mountain views and some of the best trekking hotels are found on this route. 

 Jomsom is the capital and administrationheadquarters of Mustang district, which stretches from the Tibetan border to Ghasa along the Kali Gandaki river. The deepest gorge in the world lies here along the Kali Gandaki as the river passes between two eight thousanders, Mt Annapurna and Mt Dhaulagiri.

From Jomsom you can enjoy the views of the Nilgiri peaks as well as Dhaulagiri, the sixth highest mountain in the world. Most of the hotels, along this trek route, are run by people of the Thakali tribes. They are mostly found in the mountainous regions between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. Jomsom is the last Thakali village and there is a hospital here.

This trek is interesting for the change in terrain as you climb higher. The higher altitudes around Jomsom are marked by sparse vegetation and dry climate while the lower regions near Pokhara are lush green terraced hillsides. As you go higher, you will notice a remarkable change in the culture of the local populace. The inhabitants of the lower regions are Hindus while those in the upper mountainous regions are Buddhists. People who live in the highest regions of Nepal seem more Tibetan than Nepali.  If your trek starts from Jomsom there are regular flights taking off from Pokhara for Jomsom. They leave in the early morning as later the high winds make flying impossible in the region.
