Teri La Pass Trekking - An Adventure Holiday in to the total Widernessness!!
Nar Phu Valley and Upper Mustang Trek via Teri La Pass is an extreme adventure trekking that fulfills the desire of those who seek for wilderness experience in trans Himalaya of Nepal. Wilderness Excursion is operating Mustang adventure trip from its year of inception. Wilderness Excursion promotes more daring and exhilarating trek. We first trek into the remote, fortified Tibetan villages of Nar Phu Valley north-east of the Annapurna circuit and then set off to last forbidden kingdom of Upper Mustang. This exploratory section will be wild and wonderful, walking along ancient salt trade route over a high pass to Upper Mustang where we camp with the nomads in spots that see no other westerners. We trek along the eastern, winter route from Lo and explore the newly-discovered, Buddhist caves in the sky, also visiting the remote villages of Dhi, Ghara, Yara and Tange and the renowned Luri and Tashi Kabum cave Gompas.
Nar Phu and Upper Mustang both area was recently opened to foreigners, and have been restricted area to preserve the unique Himalayan Culture and Tradition. So we will see fewer trekkers than many of Nepal's trekking regions. The inhabitants are ethnically Tibetan, traders of old, and have lived an isolated existence for centuries. Phu is an intriguing fortified village perched on a hill at the intersection of many glacial valleys and surrounded by high Himalayan peaks, and Nar is an attractive busy village of slightly more modern 'Bhotias', or Nepali Tibetans. Both are impressively beautiful. Upper Mustang was first travelled by a handful of intrepid Himalayan travelers and pilgrims in in the 50s and 60s, and we continue in their spirit of exploration. Our journey goes along some of the least known routes to the more isolated villages in this sun-drenched region, often following the rocky Kali Gandaki river-bed, other times trekking on spectacular trails high above it, and descending through marvelously sculpted and multi-hued gorges.
