    Sandhya TimalsenaFeb 3rd 2024

    We often get this question from our clients regarding the difficulty of the road to Jomsom and Muktinath from Pokhara (Beni). Well, it's better to let you know about the road conditions on the way to the Jomsom Muktinath Jeep Tour.

    Note: According to the weather forecast, there will be continuous rainfall in October. So, a vehicle with 4WD can lead you into trouble and might get stuck on the way. Only a 4WD Jeep is highly recommended.

    Let's begin with Kathmandu. Kathmandu Pokhara Highway is 200 km, which is a blacktop road. From Pokhara to Beni is about 3 hour's drive, almost the blacktop road. Sometimes, the construction process might make you feel it may not be the blacktop road. From Beni, it's about a 5-hour drive to Jomsom via Tatopani, Ghasa, Lete, Kobang, and Marpha. It's all the way rough road-off road. On the way, you will explore the 300-meter waterfall-Rupse Waterfall. Ghasa is the border of the Annapurna and Mustang regions. Marpha is also known as the apple orchid.

    Off-roading blocks you from taking your car if it hasn't got enough height. On the other hand, a 4WD jeep is required because sometimes the mus cause obstacles on the way if it rains. We suggest you take your vehicle if you have a 4WD jeep otherwise you can also hire from us. WhatsApp: +977 9851159455

    Jomsom and Further

    Jomsom is the district center of the Mustang region. It is a valley, surrounded by the Himalayas and hills. From Jomsom, it takes about 1.5 hours to drive to Muktinath. Now, the road is easy and almost 45 minutes, it takes you through the bank of the Kali Gandaki River. The road is being extended and after some time, it may be pitched. From Kagbeni, the road is awesome. It is about a 21 km drive uphill to Muktinath through the blacktop road.

    Muktinath Road Condition in Monsoon

    The monsoon is quite worse on the Jomsom Muktinath road section. If you want to know precisely, there are lots of landslide sections and rock-falling zones. Other time/seasons of the year is not a problem as long as there will not be heavy rainfall. But the monsoon brings lots of challenges on this road.  


    However, if you want amazing views, this is super best time, just like this Rupse Waterfalls. 

    Jomsom Muktinath Road in January-February-March

    Pretty cool. There is no risk of any landslides and a very rare case of stone falling. However, if you see the upper section, especially after entering the Mustang Valley, there will be a snowy route. The snowfall usually starts from the end of November and it remains till the end of March. The temperature will be in - degrees. The road can be slightly slippery, but the risk will not remain there. 

    Muktinath Road in April-May-June

    Muktinath Road in April-May-June becomes fantastic. As the weather starts getting heat, it's a famous time to travel on the stunning highway. The problems are least on the road in this season. Mustang welcomes you amazingly this season. 

    Jeep and Driver on Muktinath Road

    As you know, Jomsom Muktinath Road is a countryside road and includes some muddy sections, landslide sections, and so on. Even if the road looks good, sometimes you need to use 4 wheels. Thus, Nepal Kameleon Holidays only uses 4WD Jeep. We use the Scorpio Jeep from Pokhara and the Land Cruiser Jeep from Kathmandu. Drivers are professional, responsible, and never hurry on any road. They offer you a safe drive that you can be thankful for.  



    Our jeeps go frequently to Muktinath and Jomsom, including Upper Mustang. If you would like to know more, you can contact us via
