Welcome to Kagbeni
One more excursion from Jomsom, which could easily be appended to a visit to Muktinath, is the fascinating and beautiful village of Kagbeni (2840m). Kagbeni (or Kag) is found upstream on the Kali Gandaki, on the road/trail to Lo Manthang. You could walk along the river or catch a share 4WD the roughly 10km from Jomsom. You can't venture north of Kagbeni without an Upper Mustang permit, but you can explore the village and even trek back to Jomsom via the high west-bank route that takes you through the village of Phalyak (seven to eight hours).
