This is the best trek of in Nepal, the terrain is varied and there is a remote 11th Century Monastery on the route. The trail goes north of the main chain, across a number of high mountain passes on to part of the Tibetan plateau offering great views onto the Annapurna Range. The path follows that of that in the famous book The Snow Leopard around frozen peaks and canyons. The terrain is green and lush on the southern side and arid on the Tibetan side. Very few visitors have travelled to this area, the region has only been open to the outside world since 1988.
A wild and harsh land, with no tourists and even few hikers, and with, here and there, a few villages. Wonderdul landscapes, monasteries ... poor ones, people, yaks of course, and this feeling of being very very far away.
We start our trek from Juphal, after two short flights to Nepalgunj on first day and to Juphal on second day. Trekking through nice village like Do tarap and Shey Gompa crossing through high and remote alpine area and passes take us to beautiful Shey Phoksundo Lake (3600m). From here we will trek back to Juphal where we catch flight to Kathmandu.
As this is also Nepal's demanding trek and goes through high pass and remote area of the country where we should make lot of ascend and descend we therefore recommend to attempt only for experience trekkers. Clients carry only daypack and walk on their own pace. Average hiking per day on this trek is 7-8 hrs.
