Traksindo La

TRAKSINDO LA - Broken Stupa and New Kani

  • 3067 meters

Traksindo La is one of the major passes that will lead you towards the Dudhkoshi Valley. From the pass, you have a spectacular view of the Traksindo Gompa and the path ahead. With few tea houses and broken stupa, it still is a reasonable place to stop and refill your teacup. Ahead of the settlement, you will come across a kaani (door alike structure which is full of Buddhist paintings and prayer wheels). After the kaani, your journey starts to descend towards the village of Traksindo.

Traksindo village is the last village to have regular public road transportation. They have regular jeeps going to Salleri and Phaplu from here. Besides this luxury, they also have an enormous monastery.
