This recently introduced Namun la Pass Trek, the trail heading to the Dudh Pokhari(5300m) and Namun La Pass (5560m), is located in Lamjung, Manang Kaski districts of Nepal. Legends describe that some three thousand years ago, the Tamu community of Nepal entered this area from Tibet crossing the Namun La Pass. After that, they made their settlement here. Hence this place is also known as Tamuwan. The Tamu community, who are now well known as the Gurung community, had their own King and Palace in those days. You can still observe the remnants of the Palace.
The Namun La Pass Trekking trails are full of thousands of pilgrims heading towards the holy lake of Dudh Pokhari during the Janai Purnima festival. This festival falls in August. According to Hindu Religion, taking the sacred bath in the water of Dudh Pokhari washes away all your sins committed in this lifetime and purifies your body and soul. Therefore, by joining this adventurous trek, you can immerse yourself in the new culture and serene nature of this Himalayan country, Nepal.
Moreover, the fascinating places, joyful people, charming villages, and the serene forest of Oak, Pine, and Rhododendron add more excitement and adventure to your journey. As the region is home to various flora and fauna, you can have insight into some of them while trekking.
