Teri La Pass Trek

Newly opened Trekking Route in 2006, Teri La Pass Trek is a challenging and adventurous trek which shortly became very popular for trekkers in Nepal with off the beaten track and difficult passes along with gorgeous scenic view of Damodar Himal and lies between Nar and Mustang. Teri La Pass Trekking Trail offers beautiful natural and cultural scenery along with alluring views of different snow covered peaks. As this trekking is in the restricted area of Nepal, we need special permit for the trek. Because of the challenging altitude, you will need to work out and prepare more for this trek. The trail to Teri La Pass is totally fantastic because of the presence of diverse landscapes, from jungle to alpine areas and the dry moonscapes like scenery. As there are not many settlements along the route, the trekking is to be completed by camping which will end up making your trip more interesting and enjoyable. The whole trip is characterized by strange striking rock outcrop, ochre cliffs and pinnacle of weathered rock, canyons and ravines abound. The trail passes through many ancient villages and monasteries which displays the ancient architecture, unchanged for over 500 years. The virtually abandoned trail of Teri La Pass is much exciting and thrilling because of the presence of unique landscapes and geography of the route along with the culturally and historically important monasteries and Gompas. The trekkers and climbers really enjoy its fantastic and picturesque views of Himalayas and beyond.
