Kagbeni is the gateway to the upper Mustang Valley. The longer route to Kagbeni via Jong passes through monastic villages reminiscent of those in Upper Mustang. It would be a shame to miss this picturesque village set in a spectacular landscape of dry eroded valleys and high snow-clad peaks in your rush to get back to Pokhara or Kathmandu. If you have the time, stop and take a break in Kagbeni.

Weather Conditions in March

change start

March is the start of the ‘Spring Season’ when temperatures begin to rise from their winter lows. By the end of March, temperatures are significantly warmer at lower elevations and hot air from the valleys tend to create clouds in the mountains during the afternoons. Mornings are generally clear, with the clearest weather coming just after sunrise. At high altitudes, while generally warmer than the previous months snow is still possible, and heavy snow storms in March are not unheard of. Mornings and nights are still cold.

Jomsom

Highlights: Marpha
Difficulty: easy
The picturesque village of Marpha sits in the shadow of Dhaulagiri. It’s a far more appealing place than nearby Jomsom, with its whitewashed Tibetan style homes and Niyingma monastery dominating the village. A pleasant place to linger after a long trek.

Highlights: Poon Hill

If you'd like to finish the trek with a climb to the panoramic view point of Poon Hill and wave goodbye to the 8000 m peaks of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, but not walk the road section you can cut out a few days by taking a bus between Jomsom and Tatopani.

Sat Mar 30 (day 4)
you can add extra rest days after the itinerary is created
