Pilgrimage sites of Nepal like Muktinath and Gosainkunda make popular trekking destinations. Muktinath is a pilgrimage centre for Buddhists and Hindus. You'll see Tibetan traders as well as sadhus from the far south of India . The shrines in a grove of trees include a Buddhist gompa and a Vishnu temple of Jiwala Mayi . An old temple nearby shelters a spring and natural gas jets which provide Muktinath's famous eternal flame. It's the earth-water-fire combination that accounts for Muktinath's great religious significance.
From Muktinath you can retrace your steps to Pokhara, or from jomsom, you can catch a flight to pokhara. It is possible to continue beyond Muktinath and cross the Thorung La pass to walk the rest of the Annapurna Circuit but this trekking can be easier if you start from Besisahar.
