Teri La Pass Trek is a newly explored trekking trail from Naar to Mustang. It allows you to discover the hidden treasure of the Trans Himalayas of Nepal. No technical skill is required for the Teri–La Pass, but you should have more excellent physical condition than other classic treks in Nepal. However, this new Trans Himalayan trekking trail leads you from the Tibetan plateau in the heart of the Annapurna region. Teri La Pass Trek is challenging and offers a wilderness experience.

The core of this long and varied route is a brilliant week of trek through the inhabitant area. Also, the camp requires an elevation between 4,000 to 5,000 meters from sea level. Despite its remoteness, the Teri La Pass Trek is an awe-inspiring view of the entire Naar Phu valley and picturesque Mustang. But it offers majestic views of the Himalayan range, pristine alpine meadows, and mysterious landscapes of the isolated Upper Mustang. Finally, we reached the upper Kali Gandaki valley, an ancient salt trade route between Nepal and Tibet.

It is an opportunity to explore from one region to another region. The Teri-La Pass trek begins from Bensi Shahar, a classic route of the Annapurna circuit trek. Then, the trail enters the wilderness and hidden treasure of Naar Phu Valley from Koto. Then continues walking through Lapse Khola, the alpine meadows, and crosses over the Teri–La pass. Finally, it lies beyond the Chulu peaks into the unknown Damodar Himal.
