I went to Nepal with my husband and three friends and we had a great time on the Jomsom trek. Everything had a very authentic feel, the guides were very helpful and fun, and of course, we just loved everything about Nepal. I would suggest Nepal Dream Path Treks & Expedition for exploring Jomsom Muktinath trek.
