Namunla pass Trekking

The Namunla Pass (4850m) Trekking is an interesting to walk into the Annapurna region following the village of Kalikasthan in Pokhara. 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. After Siklesh village, there are no other villages till Timang. 

This trek starts from Pokhara. You will drive gravel road about 8 hours  to Siklesh village through scenic view. You will continue trek to wilderness area via Tasa kharka, Tasha dharmasala , Boksi Tal, Thorju and Namunla pass. After cross, you will get down to Timang and join Annapurna circuit trail.

TREKKING GRADE

It's important to match your fitness level. Find what you think will suit you best in the tables below:

Easy

Easy trekking by Himalayan standards is generally up to 2800m. There are plenty of ups and downs on well-maintained trails. This type of trip is best suited for those who lead a reasonably active life. The trek takes about 3 to 7 days, walking about 4 to 5 hours a day.

Moderate

this involves longer treks (eight to fifteen days) on maintained trails. This type of trek includes day excursions to higher elevations, for which it's advisable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these treks, we generally achieve an altitude between 1100 m to 3200 m.

Strenuous

these treks must be fully supported. We climb to altitudes between 3200 and 5000m. and there are overnight stays at altitudes above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit and enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas.

Very strenuous

this trek is best described as Alpine, and suitable is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack, when required. The trek covers very remote areas, traveling over snow-covered passes at altitudes of up to 6500m. You will need to axes and crampons. No strenuous trek should be undertaken without medical clearance.

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. I will do the trek again to go over the pass.  The services we got from this company is appreciated. We never forget !
