Tillman Pass Trek was named after a pioneer British adventurer and explorer H. W. Tillman (1898 – 1977) who explored the Himalaya in the mid 20th century. It is a difficult trek which involves some basic snow climbing and traversing one of the difficult passes in the Himalaya. We cover the same ground as the popular Langtang valley trek, but then we move through an extremely remote area with no human habitation for several days we need full camping gears on our way to the glaciated area behind the peaks of Urkinmang (6100m) and Dorje Lakpa (6700m) of the Jugal Himalayan Range. After the pass, the trail drops down to the eastern side of the Jugal Range, home to five lakes (Panch Pokhari) which is a popular pilgrimage site for local people from the green valleys of Sindhupalchok area in central Nepal. This trek blends the experience of an adventurous walk over an icy col with meeting the ethnic Tamang people of central Nepal.

Physical Fitness and Experience

Tilman Pass Trek is a challenging trek which is fit for those who have the ability to walk 5-9 hours of walking uphill and downhill in a day carrying the personal day pack. Some days are longer with 7- 10 hours of walking as well. Tilman Pass Trek is low altitude trek which demands physical fitness, however having strong determination, positive vibe and average physical fitness can complete this trek. Doing some physical exercise a few weeks prior to the trip is better but technical skill is required for this trek. If you are taking medicine for heart, lung or blood diseases, please kindly consult your doctor and inform to Halesi Treks.

Travel Insurance

This is a real adventure in high altitude so obtaining a travel insurance is always a good idea for your safety and is highly recommended too. Your travel insurance policy should cover helicopter evacuation and medical expenses in an emergency. There is not any Nepalese insurance company to sell travel insurance policy so you better buy a good one from home. There are some insurance policies which covers only in low altitude below 4000 mt. and some only in high altitude above 4000 mt. So before you purchase it, please double-check the policy what it covers and where are you going.

Best Seasons

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for Tilman Pass Trek Where normally days are sunny, the temperature is perfect, the sky is clear and Mountain remains crystal. This trek can be done in Monsoon (June to August ) but you should not expect the great weather and Mountain view.  You can do it in Winter (December to February) if you are used to with extreme cold temperature.

Ground Transportation

Highway in Nepal is safe, however, sometimes transport can be halted due to landslide, strike or by political unrest. Add a cushion of a few extra days in your onward travel schedule, advised as a margin of safety for your international flight from Nepal. We, therefore, advise that you schedule at least an extra days cushion in your itinerary to avoid conflicts with international flights out of Nepal. In that case, Halesi Treks can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu before your flight home.
