The road to Muktinath is much easier than the road to Manang. We took three days to ride from Pokhara to Muktinath, but just one day to return. When going to Muktinath, there was no need to stop at Jomsom. We could have easily made it to Muktinath before sun down. But we broke journey at Jomsom so that our bodies got a chance to acclimatize to the high altitude.
