Tilman’s Pass (5320m) was named after the pioneer British Adventurer and Explorer, H. W. Tilman (1898 – 1977), who explored the Himalaya in the mid-20th Century, when the country was completely unknown to the rest of the world. Tilman’s Pass trekking is a challenging trip as it involves some icey section climbing and traversing glaciated areas in one of the highest and isolated Himalayan passes. We cover the same ground as the popular Langtang Valley trek at the beginning part of the trekking, however, we then move through an extremely remote area (there is no human habitation for several days) on our way to the glaciated area behind the peaks of Mt. Urkinmang (6100m) and Mt. Dorje Lakpa (6700m) of the Jugal Himal Range. After the pass, the trail drops down to the Eastern side of the Jugal Himal Range, home to five lakes (Panch Pokhari) and a popular pilgrimage site for local people from the green valleys of Sindhupalchok area in central Nepal where the trip meets permanent habitation. This trek blends the experience of an adventurous trip over the high pass with meeting the ethnic Tamang people and exploring some rarely visited areas by common tourists.
