Accommodation:
Nepal is famous for its low-budget teahouses, especially on trekking routes around the Annapurnas. These are available in Lower Mustang, but so are some much more comfortable places to stay. If you want comfy beds, art on the walls, good quality food and atmospheric buildings, then there are options for these in Lower Mustang. 
In Jomsom, Om’s Home has friendly management, good food, and vintage Bollywood photographs throughout the rooms and property! It was established in 1976, so is quite a classic place to stay in Jomsom. There’s even a new Himalayan Java cafĂ© next door. In Kagbeni, the newly opened Red House Lodge is located in a renovated old 19th century nunnery. As many of the original features as possible have been retained, such as Buddhist murals in the ‘yoga room’, and a richly adorned Buddha in the prayer room.

Description:
Jomsom at an altitude of 2800m, is more correctly known as Dzongsam or New Fort. It spreads over both the banks of the Kali Gandaki. The towering peaks of Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri form an attractive backdrop. Being the district headquarters, it is primarily an administrative and commercial center with government officials and merchants rubbing shoulders with the local inhabitants of the region, known as the Thakalis. It has a wireless station, a police station, a bank, a hospital and a veterinary hospital. A company of the Nepalese Army is stationed here. Nearby is an airfield, from where flights operate regularly. However, due to the strong winds that buffet the area in the afternoons, the airfield is functional only in the forenoon.
The views from Jomsom are enchanting as the Nilgiri (7,061 m) and Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) ranges reflect the golden rays of the rising and setting sun. The entire panorama is filled with a golden, glittering light which forms a dramatic contrast with the barren, black and dry mountains of the surrounding Kali Gandaki valley. Life here is a balance of hard work, and ancient culture. 
Many visitors find their most lasting impression of Nepal comes not from the ancient temples in the urban valleys but from visits to places like Jomsom and its exhilarating spiritual environment. Jomsom area is not only the most popular trekking destination in Nepal but also the gateway to Upper Mustang - "Kingdom" within the Hindu Kingdom of Nepal. Jomsom is also the gateway to The Muktinath shrine that holds great religious significance to both Buddhists and Hindus. This area is also famous for its delicious apples.
