If you are already planning on visiting Nepal, you can read about things to see and do, or message us to find out how to visit lower Mustang, and the Thak Khola region. You can travel independently or tell your travel agent about the places you want to visit so they can include it in your itinerary.
If you are already in Pokhara, you can take a local bus or tourist jeep to Jomsom, and get out at Tukuche. There is only one road and two guesthouses, so you can’t get lost.
If you are doing the Annapurna Circuit anticlockwise, on the way down make sure you walk on the left bank (east) of the Kali Gandaki river after Marpha to visit Chhairo gompa and avoid the dusty and busy road. After crossing the footbridge, after the Namgyaling Tibetan Refugee camp the path goes past Chhairo gompa. Lower down, when you see a large Om Mani Padme Hom painted on a rock on the other bank, veer to the right, to cross a long suspension bridge.
Then follow the highway into Tukuche. The old road splits off at the top of the school playing field, and Sambha gompa abuts the highway but accessed through the playing field – there are stone steps built into the wall to enable you to climb over.
