Mesokanto-La Pass Trek, a scenic combination of adventure with cultural trekking, where the journey leads to the famous and popular Annapurna circuit trail to Manang village, considered as a top ten adventure destination in the world. However, our trek from low heat paddy fields to cool green hills and glaciers and Tilicho Lake. Nothing can beat this unique and scenic adventure of Mesokanto-La Pass through Tilicho Lake. Hence this trek takes you to the hidden corners of Manang and Annapurna region in areas less ventured by trekkers and explorers.

Like; Walking through beautiful mountain villages where the culture-temperature and landscapes change every day. Our adventure visits more Buddhist cultural villages within the scenic Manang Valley, surrounded by mountains between the Annapurna and Chulu peak.

another; Tilicho Lake is a holy lake believed in both Hinduism and Buddhism. From the Tilicho lake to the remote corner of the Manang region, one can reach the Dhaulagiri in Jomsom in Mustang district and the country of Thakali in the Nilgiri through the high and picturesque Mesokanto-La Naka. Completing the tough trek though, where an easy downhill walk leads to the less warm zone of Tatopani and the world’s deepest Kaligandaki Gorge between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountains.

Enjoy refreshing moments in the water of its hot natural springs at Tatopani where the climb continues to the tranquil rhododendron woodlands of Ghorepani where a side hike takes you to the amazing view-point Poon Hill for stunning sunrise views with a 360° wide view of the Himalayan. Combining natural and cultural heritage, the Mesokanto La Pas trek makes for an experience of a lifetime
