After Tilman we trek crossing the Langshisha glacier visiting the five sacred lakes of Panch Pokhari and the extremely remote Jugal Himal, home of the blue sheep and the red panda. The trek takes us past the rocky peaks of Kanshurum, Urkinmang and Ganchenpo.
There is this anekdote.
A long time ago in Kerung, Tibet, an old Lama and his wife, Dorjee and Lakpa, had an ox they loved, but it ran away along the banks of the upper Trisuli, past Rasuwa, down to where the Langtang Khola joins the river and up into the Langtang valley. The couple followed the ox ’s spirit trail left as magic marks in the snow. They chased the ox past the holy ground of Kyangjing Gompa towards the mountain of Langtang Ri and on a large flat rock that sat in the khola, killed it out of sheer frustration. Today the rock is covered in red moss and lichen which grew out of the animal’s blood. The couple was so upset at their stupidity that they changed form and their spirits flew into the mountains to become the twin peaks of Dorjee Lakpa.
Please be prepared for a strenous trek in a remote and wild part of the Langtang National Park.
