    This section is really different from the trek in the Marsyangdi side. Here, the climate is relatively dry, and the landscape looks like a desert. The area on the way from Muktinath to Kagbeni is full of caves and you will be surrounded by wonderful geological forms. From Muktinath (3800 meters) the trail gradually descends towards the quaint village of Jarkot, a quaint village with interesting houses and lots of green fields which seem out of place in the brown surround. At this point you can choose between two routes: one goes directly to Jomsom, and the other goes to Kagbeni. Kagbeni is a village worth seeing, with stone houses and narrow alleys. The village is located near the Kali-Gandaki River. This river is huge and has created a very wide valley here. Do not venture north of this village. It is the border to the Mustang area, which is closed to tourists and requires very special permission to visit. (BLD).
