This trekking route gives you the opportunity to visit Khanshar, which is also said to be the lost village of Nepal and the culture and religion of the Tibetans, and their oldest monasteries. After savoring the clear blue lake at a high altitude in the middle of the powerful Himalayas, we have the option of passing the Thorung La and down to Muktinath or crossing a challenging Mesokanto Pass to Jomsom. Crossing the Mesokanto Pass is a challenging adventure and requires adequate equipment, including the tent camp, ropes, and a well-experienced Guide.

The Moesokanta pass and the Tilicho lake base camp are more picturesque and the whole mountain range will appear in front of you.
