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.views From Jomsom Are Enchanting As The Nilgiri (7061m) And Dhaulagiri (8167m) Ranges Reflect The Golden Rays Of The Rising And The Setting Sun. The Entire Panorama Is Filled With A Golden, Glittering Light, Which Forms A Dramatic Contrast. 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.
