The Teri La Pass Trek is located in the eastern Upper Mustang of Damodar Himal close with the border of Tibet Autonomous Region of China. This trek is linked with two different districts of Mustang and Manang. Teri La Pass (5,595m) Trek was discovered in 2006 and used by salt traders in the past to trade between the natives of Lo Kingdom (Upper Mustang) and Nar Phu valley. This trek lies under the restricted area of Nepal where you need the special permit of Nar Phu and Upper Mustang from the Immigration Department of Nepal. Himalayan Wander walkers will prepare your necessary permits and organize this trip with the latest updates of all routes.  

Teri La Pass is one of the most challenging trekking destinations in Nepal. This trek needs a full camping trek where you will experience the real adventure crossing the high remote passes and away from the remote villages for a week-long with the silence of nature. This is truly an adventure trek to explore the diverse landscape from lower mustang to Manang via Upper Mustang, High passes, isolated moraine, and hidden valley of Nar Phu. Every day of a trek offers you stunning views of the uniquely structured landscape and even magnificent vistas of giant mountains such as the Dhaulagiri range, Annapurna range, Damodar Himal, Tilicho, Gangapurna, and its neighboring peaks. The best time to visit Teri la Pass is from late April to late October.

Guiding, Food, and Camping
In Nepal, all trekking supplies - camping equipment, kitchen implements, food - are all carried by pack animals like mules, Yaks, and horses. Even Porters are common in Nepal. All trekkers are accompanied by a guide, a cook, and usually at least one horseman or yak herder. With the surest footing; they lead trekking groups across the passes. The horseman and cook will usually run ahead during a trekking day. They will have prepared a packed lunch for hikers and will go on to the night’s resting place to set up camp. They set up tents, cook dinner, and ready the area for arriving trekkers. When trekkers reach the campsite they are greeted with a hot cup of tea and biscuits in the dining tent. After six hours in the mountains, no drink will ever taste sweeter. For dinner, the cook will usually prepare a buffet of dishes that are as welcome as they are delicious.
