Tilman Pass Trek
Tilman pass trek resides in a far-off and less explored part of the Langtang region. It offers views of the Paanch pokhari (five sacred lakes), glaciers and remote mountains. It is home to wildlife such as Red panda, blue sheep, Bears, leopards, Jackals, wild peacocks, Pheasant, Mountain Thars and other magnificent creatures. The trail takes us close to various Himalayan ranges for spectacular scenery such as Gaurishankar, Langtang and Rowaling range.Various mountains such as Langtang Lirung, Naya (New) Khanga, Ganesh Himal, Dorjelakpa and bamboo and Rhododendron forests will be viewed closely during the trek. The region is secluded from much of the civilization and trekkers are able to bask in the beauty of the landscape and wildlife. The culture here as in all Himalayan regions is impacted by the Tibetan culture mixed with Nepali lifestyle. The rural people that are indigenous here are mostly sherpas and gurungs. The trek starts from Syabru Besi and reaches the highest altitude of 5320m at Tilman pass.
