Ghale Gaun Dudhpokhari and Namun la pass Trekking

This Trekking is an interesting to walk into the Annapurna region following the village of Ghale Gaun. It is an alternative route of Annapurna trekking to avoid the crowd and dusty road . You pass the Namun La Banjyang with full of excitement and lots of fun. It can be defined as adventure trek of Annapurna region and one high difficult pass. But it is very exciting and the challenging Trekking. You can see the nice scenery of Annapurna, Manaslu and Lamjung ranges and other popular mountain scenery in this area. It is a wilderness trekking and fully camping is required. You are not recommended to trek alone and without guide/porters because this route has many confusions on the way and hard to find other trekkers. 

During the Janai Purnima (Sacred Thread Ceremony) thousands of pilgrims and visitors throng the lake for holy worship. Hindus worship the lake as the gateway to heaven.There is a strong belief that if you take a bath in this Dudhpokhari (Milky Lake) three times then all your sins committed in this lifetime will be purified. Along with the strong religious and cultural heritage the area is also rich in nature and wildlife.

I was glad about to show my children the Namun La pass and Annapurna circuit. It was amazing to go with them and show there the rhododendron forests and feel the mountains again. I liked to see Dhan again. He is a wonderful guide and he has a nice family. The lunch at his home was really good. All this make to happen by Nepal alternative treks so I want to use this office again for next time.

I tekked through Namun La pass and  enjoyed the thorong la pass by horse. It was really nice and helpful.
