Tilman Pass Trekking is a rough trek in a remote and wild part of the Himalayan range of Nepal. Trekking in the Tilman Pass offers views of the Langsisha glacier, tranquil five sacred lakes around Panch Pokhari, and the extremely remote Jugal Himal, which links the Himalayas from Kangchenjunga in the East to Dhaulagiri in the West. This is the home of the rare red panda, a wide range of wildlife, and diverse vegetation as well as the Tamang ethnic group.
The Tilman Trekking begins from Kathmandu, driving through ripe, golden-yellow, paddy fields and lush sub-tropical vegetation to the road head at the Tamang village of Chautara closed to the Bhotekosi River. It is also accessible by a 132 km drive north of the ancient city of Kathmandu to Syabrubesi and ends in Chautara via Tilman Pass (5350 m). A famous trekking trail, the Tilman Pass Trekking connects two different Himalaya regions including the Langtang and Panch Pokhari (Five holy lakes), where you will enjoy the panoramic Himalayan views of Langtang and Lirung, Langtang Himal, Naya Khanga, Yala peak, Ganesh Himal, Langshisa, Gaurishanker, Dorjelakpa, etc. There are also green forests with Rhododendron flowers, and pine trees, plus wild animals such as mountain thars, bears, leopards, jackals, monkeys, wild boars, pheasants, and peacocks. The rounded holy five lakes add extra romance for trekkers. Trekking off the beaten trail, allows trekkers to enjoy nature in such remote areas.
The Tilman Pass Trek affords one with the opportunity of different Himalayan views and the living style of high mountain rural people who share their culture, manner, and religion with our experienced team leaders. This is also known as the Jugal Himal Trek or Panch Pokhari Trek - a set of five small lakes - ensconced in a vast boulder-strewn amphitheater, where we encamped near the small temple of Vishnu, a site of Hindu pilgrimage.
