Jomsom

Nature At Its Best

Jomsom Village in the Annapurna Mountains in Nepal, also known as Dzong-Sampa or New Fort, is a town located at an altitude of about 2700 meters in Mustang District. It extends over both the banks of the Kali Gandaki River. The black rocks or stone which is called as Shaligram is found alongside Kali Gandaki River, which in the Hindu culture is taken as the form of God Vishnu.
As the district headquarters, it is primarily an administrative and commercial center with government officials and merchants rubbing shoulders with the local residents of the region, known as Thakalis. A company of the Nepalese Army is stationed here. Nearby is Jomsom Airport from where there are regular flights. Jomson has daily flight connections with Pokhara although cloud cover at Pokhara or Jomson and high winds particularly at Jomson might cause delays or cancelations.
Jomsom usually serves as a stop for those traveling to Upper Mustang and Muktinath Temple. The place offers some lodges and hotels that can provide the travelers with accommodation and resting facilities while traveling. The southwestern end of town is the airport is a place where visitors can also find the bus station, ticket office, tourist hotels, restaurants, shops and airline offices.
In the recent years, Jomsom has been the major tourist hub in Nepal because many domestic and international travelers would love to go this area for their trekking and travel. The Apple garden near Jomsom at Marha is very famous for very sweet Nepali apple. Once you been there, you would be very much amazed to see the beautiful Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Macchapucchre, Gangapurna, Hiun Chuli Mountains and several other peaks and mountains from Mustang too. On the other side, the beautiful landscape is also the major attraction of Jomsom area. The mixture of mountains and barren hills (the land like of Tibet) are the amazing fusion of this place.
