Jugal Himal BooK Now Print


Jugal Himal trek is one of the nearest trekking spot from capital city.  The Himalayan mountain ranges towering 30 kilometers, due north of Kathmandu valley are known as the Jugal and Langtang Himals.  Jugal Himal trekking area is not very common area and but it is quite amazing trekking area.  The trekking routes pass through the tropical forests and some narrow trials. The people residing in this area are Tamang.  On this trek we explore the vain leys and the ridges which extend to the south of these Himal and which offer some of the best off-the-beaten-trail trekking in Nepal.

Starting near Kathmandu, we trek across the Sherpa valley of Helambu, and then climb to the alpine ridges of Yangri Danda that rise next to the Panch Pokhari Lake (alpine ridge). We walk along this ridge for a few days looking at the numerous peaks of Jugal Himal and cross over the pass of Ganja La (5,200m./17073ft.) to enter into the Langtang valley.

Entering Langtang, we continue eastward to the yak pasture called Langshisa Kharka and then fork to the right following Langshisa glacier between the peaks of Gangchenpo (6387m./20955ft.) and Langshisa Ri (6842m./22447ft.) in order to reach the crest of Tilman’s Col. At 5304m./17400ft, this is a difficult crossing with permanent snow and some hidden crevasses. After the pass we try following a high altitude path along the eastern flank of the Panch Pokhari lekh and then follow Balephi Khola to conclude our trek in Belephi. We will take an alternate route in case returning by Panch Phokhari is not feasible.
