Flight Pokhara – Jomsom (2720m), and trek to Kagbeni (2810m, 2 hours walking).
It’s just a 20 minutes short flight; but amazing flight through the Kaligandaki river gorge; the deepest natural river gorge in the world; which lies between two 8000m gaints peaks, Annapurna I (8091m) & Dhaulagiri (8167m).
After landing at Jomsom airport; we walk following the east bank of Kaligandaki river to Ekle Bhatti (2740m, 1:30 hours). Then walk for another 30 mintutes to reach Kagbeni, an oasis-like settlement of flat-roofed houses. There is also a Tibetan Buddhist gompa of Sakyapa sect in the village and views of the gompa with Mt. Nilgiri, Mt. Tilicho, Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt. Annapurna rising above are superb!
