    After a few hours of walking along the steep incline, we finally reach the mystical lake of Tilicho.

    Day 12: Trek to Muktinath via Thorong La Pass

    Stop At: Thorong La Pass, Manang - 02, Thorong la, Manang 33500 Nepal
    It is the most challenging day of the entire trip. We need to walk through steeply inclined trails and lofty altitudes with occasional heavy winds. Hence we start the journey with an early wake-up call. The path from the high camp to Thorung La Pass is usually rocky and quite steep, so it demands extreme physical endurance. Also, the high altitude brings unwanted fatigue and tends to slow you down.

    After a few hours of walking, we finally reach the pass situated at 5416m above sea level. Here you can get a sense of pure satisfaction when you reach the top. We then continue on our venture as we start descending to the other side of the moraine.

    The way down is very steep, and if you have trekking poles, they prove as a blessing. After 2-3 hours of walking, we finally reach the holy shrine of Muktinath. Here you can offer your prayers to the sacred deity and also shower in the well-famed 108 showers of the temple.
