Tilman pass trekking is one of the best wilderness trekking areas of Nepal, Tilman pass trekking can be defined as a tough trek in a remote and wild part of the Himalayas. The area offers you the Langsisha glacier, five sacred lakes of Panch Pokhari and the extremely remote Jugal Himal. It is the home of the blue sheep and the red panda. Our trek will be following past the rocky peaks of Kanshurum, Urkinmang and Ganchenpo. A long time ago in Kerong, Tibet, an old Lama and his wife, Dorjee and Lakpa, had an ox they loved, but it ran away along the banks of the Upper Trisuli, past Rasuwa, down to where the Langtang Khola joins the river and up into the Langtang valley. The couple followed the ox’s spirit trail left as magic marks in the snow.
They chased the ox past the holy ground of Kyangjing Gompa towards the mountain of Langtang Ri and on a large flat rock that sat in the stream, killed it out of sheer frustration. Today the rock is covered in red moss and lichen, which grew out of the animal’s blood. The couple was so upset at their stupidity that they changed form and their spirits flew into the mountains to become the twin peaks of Dorjee Lakpa.
