DESCRIPTION

Good time to go: Late Spring (Late April/ May) to Autumn (October) Entry: Tal / Bus from Kathmandu to Besishahar, Jeep from Besishahar. Exit: Jomsom / Flight to Pokhara; Bus to Pokhara/Kathmandu.

Trail Condition: The trails are not marked for a long section of the trail and an expert guide who has been there before is necessary. Expect Snow and Scree. Crampons/Microspikes are highly recommended.

Accommodation: Lodges are available for most of the trek. However, from Day 4 to Day 7 of the trek, trekkers have to carry their own camping gear and food. Most of the lodges on this route, however, are pretty basic. Homestays are available in Nache and Tachai.

Risks: Unmarked trails, high passes, and lack of human habitation (for 4 days) make this trek a challenging one. Hence, it is very important to be super-prepared for this trek. Specifically, a guide who has been there before, a good tent, previous exposure to strenuous treks, and a steady mind will be very important for this trek.

Route Variation: It is possible to skip the crowded trails leading to Thorung La and exit the trek in Ngawal. It is also possible to skip the Thorung La and take the Mesokanto Pass close to Tilicho Lake to Mustang.
