Lamjung Trekking

The area to the east of the Marsyandi River, between Lamjung and Gorkha districts, has great potential as a remote area trek. This region has seen little development as a tourist destination. There are no conventional tourist infrastructures, so groups will need to be fully self-sufficient and have competent guides who are familiar with the local trails. No special permits are required for this region.

The ideal destinations are the lakes of Mimi Pokhari and Dudh Pokhari, which are located on the south-western slopes of Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli, both of which are  part of the Manaslu massif. These two lakes are important pilgrimage sites for the local Gurung people who visit during the summer months.

The best starting point for treks to both these lakes is either Phalensangu or Besishahar. Beyond Dudh Pokhari is a high pass, Rupina Bhanjyang, which leads into the valley of the Budhi Gandaki. Alternatively, from Dudh Pokhari, a trail can be followed into the Deurandi Khola valley and on to Gorkha. To the west of the Marsyandi River there are other possibilities for self-sufficient trekkers. There is much more habitation beside the river, but little or no tourist facilities. Treks from Besishahar through the villages of Ghalegaon, Bhujung, and on towards Sikles are possible but, again, guides with local knowledge are a must. A number of village home stay programs have been developed in the area, which gives visitors a unique insight into rural life in Nepal.

Above Ghalegaon, a remote trail leads through uninhabited country to the high pass of Namun La. This pass leads down to the Marsyandi near Bagarchap on the Annapurna Circuit route. Trekkers attempting this route must ensure that they and their staff are well prepared for this crossing which is often snow-bound.
