Trip Information

Tilman pass trek notes

Cross Tilman Pass hike information stated above is just a sample guideline for tourists to visit. However, in our agency’s history, we arranged the Tilman pass adventure high pass trek in both directions. If the guest wishes to hike Tilman pass anti-clockwise, like Panchpokhari – Tilman pass and exit in Syabrubensi, we can modify the travel plan as your wish. Local politics, landslides, cancellation of local flights, weather, transport, or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can result in a change of tour itinerary on a trip.

It is, however, very incredible that the itinerary would be extensively altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. When a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.
