Let's begin with Kathmandu in fact. 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
