Namun La Pass Trek route was surveyed by Sir Chris Bonington and Barney Rosedale many years ago. The route to the Namun La (5,560m), a high pass along an old trade route between Pokhara and Manang. This route proved to be a unique and less-trekked way to connect onto the main Annapurna Circuit Trail. Wilderness Excursion now offers the opportunity to walk in these old footsteps across a spectacular region of Nepal’s Annapurna Himalayas.
This newly introduced Namun La Pass trek to foreign trekkers, the trail to Dudh Pokhari (Milk Lake) and the Namun La Pass is situated on the border of the Lamgung, Manang and Kaski districts of Nepal and provides a little-known and little-traveled access onto the great Annapurna Circuit. Legend has it that some three thousand years ago the Tamu community (now Gurung) of Nepal settled in this area after crossing the Namun La Pass from Tibet. This region is also known as Tamuwan and, at one time, had a king and palace.
There is a strong belief that bathing in the chilly Dudh Pokhari can wash away a lifetime of sins. During the Janai Purnima (Sacred Thread Ceremony) pilgrims come from all over Nepal to visit this holy site. Many devotees think this place is a gateway to heaven. During this varied trek, you’ll encounter a wide range of sights; picturesque villages, terraced farmland, glacial lakes, steep-sided gorges, raging rivers and, of course, incredible mountain scenery of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges.
