Overview of Mesokanto Pass Trekking

Mesokanto Pass Trekking is a technical and adventurous trip to Nepal’s Annapurna region. The trip lies above Tilicho Lake (4949m), the highest lake in the world. The lake is about 1 km wide and 4 km long.

The trail passes through rocky terrain with panoramic views of snowy mountains and crosses the Mesokanto Pass (5,100 m). Walking around the magnificent mountain views and natural landscapes is an exhilarating experience. Spring and Autumn are the primary Trekking seasons of every year.

We do have a fixed departure group for 2024 and 2025. For more information regarding the trek, contact us on WhatsApp at +9779851033819 or inquire through email now.

The Mesokanto-La pass trekking is an incredible pass. It has multiple views and cultural heritage lies on the trail. It is peaceful and exciting, but it is a bit hard to move forward. Hiking in Mesokanto provides splendid Himalayan views of Mount Manaslu (8163m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna (8091m), and the Muktinath Himalayan range from the top of the Meso Kanto pass.

The course passes by the Marshyangdi River and the ancient valley of Manang. The trek to Mesokanto La starts from Kathmandu Center Bus Park and goes to Chamje, or you can pick up private vehicles from Kathmandu. Boundless Adventure is a Trekking company with highly experienced guides for the Mesokanto trekking route.

Safety measures and acclimatization at high altitudes are significant concerns. If you need more information about the trip, Contact us.

AMS and Altitude Sickness

Mesokanta La Pass takes you to the hidden pass beyond the famous TIlicho Lake. This trek traverses through the key located at 5025 meters. The maximum elevation of this traverse takes you beyond 5,000 meters, making it prone to Acute Mountain Sickness.

It is recommended that you follow a professionally designed itinerary that accounts for enough rest days in between. Also, a gradual climb with proper hydration is paramount for this traverse. Mesokanta-La Pass is a challenging trek with technical difficulties; for detailed information, read our blog, How to deal with high altitude sickness in the Himalayas.

Best Trekking Season

Mesokanto Pass Trekking is best in Spring (March to June) and Autumn (September to December). The moderate temperatures guarantee impressive views throughout the trip. Boundless Adventure does not operate during the monsoon season in Nepal.

Mesokanto Pass Trekking Important

We, the Boundless Adventure team, will make the best arrangements for the Mesokanto Pass (Tilicho Lake) Trekking trip. However, some issues can be beyond our control. Heavy rainfall and landslides can extend the trip, but there is little probability of this.

Add-ons & Options

With years of experience providing service and comfort to our clients who want to experience the beauty of Nepal’s Himalayas, Boundless Adventure has become a well-renowned name. Dealing with every type of customer, we have learned each traveler’s needs. Thus, we are pleased to introduce our feature, Add-ons, which aims to provide additional service to make our customers’ journey unforgettable.

Cost of the hotel in Kathmandu

You are responsible for all the hotel expenses for two nights in Kathmandu and more if you extend your vacation. You can find a hotel that suits your budget and desires, but we’ll be pleased to arrange one for you. We usually provide a three-star hotel for most clients. The three-star hotel has a double bed, breakfast, and wifi facility, costing $45 per night.

Kathmandu sightseeing Cost

Before starting the trekking journey, we added Kathmandu sightseeing to refresh our client and get to know the two different sides of Nepal: urban and rural. The sightseeing includes visiting three different UNESCO heritage sites: Pashupatinath temple, Kathmandu Durbar Square, and Boudhanath stupa. We include the service of a private car and driver during your visit. The cost for a day of sightseeing in Kathmandu is US$444 per person.

Porter Fee

Our package doesn’t include porter service for the Mesokanta Trek; however, we can provide porter service at our client’s request. We have well-experienced porters who have been pottering for a long time. Our experienced porters will carry your gear and equipment and manage your belongings throughout the journey. Each porter’s carrying capacity is 22kg; you can also share your porter with other trekkers. The cost of each porter is USD 234.

Hotel cost at Pokhara

As our package only includes accommodation and three meals during the trekking journey to Mesokanta, you are also responsible for hotel expenses in Pokhara. Pokhara has various options for hotels, ranging from budget-friendly to luxury. We can recommend hotels that suit your desire, or we’ll be pleased to provide one. The cost for a three-star hotel in Pokhara is $45 per night, and it offers double beds, a couple of bottles of water, wifi, and a morning meal facility.

Cost for Pokhara sightseeing

After returning from the Mesokanta trek, we offer sightseeing in Pokhara, a tourism capital city of Nepal. The sightseeing areas in Pokhara include the World Peace Pagoda, Bindhyabasini Temple, Phewa Lake, International Mountain Museum, Sarangkot, Gupteshowr Cave, and David’s Fall. It is an optional choice, so you have the right to skip it, but we suggest you add one more day to the itinerary for sightseeing at Pokhara, as it is the most-visited destination in Nepal. The cost of sightseeing in Pokhara is $50 per person.

Pokhara to Kathmandu by Car

We provide a bus service while returning to Kathmandu from Pokhara. However, we added car service to our Add-ons for those who desire personalized driving. Four people can drive in one car; thus, if there are more than 4 in the group, we can manage two cars simultaneously. The cost of a car from Pokhara to Kathmandu is USD 555.

Pokhara to Kathmandu by flight

Some clients want to avoid long driving, and some have less time for road travel. Keeping that in mind, we added a flight service from Pokhara to Kathmandu. The flight from Pokhara takes just 25 minutes to get to Kathmandu, making it an easy and convenient option. The flight ticket costs $550 per person.

Chitwan National Park Tour

To offer a unique chance for the trekkers to experience the different aspects of Nepal’s beauty, we added the Chitwan National Park tour to our Mesokanto pass trekking package. As the trek of Mesokanto ends with a return to Pokhara, it will be easy for trekkers to go directly to Chitwan from Pokhara. However, you also have the option to get to Chitwan from Kathmandu. Let us know your desire; we’ll make arrangements according to your preference. Adding the tour in Chitwan National Park in the Mesokanto trekking package lets you minimize your time as it doesn’t require a separate trip plan. Jungle safari (either on an elephant’s back or in a jeep), canoeing in Rapti River, watching various species of birds, visiting the elephant breeding center, and getting insight into Tharu culture are the once-in-a-lifetime experiences you’ll gain during the tour.

Mesokanto pass Trek

Exceptional trek with exceptional service

My 14-day Mesokatha pass trek with my five friends went exceptionally well and will never be forgotten. The trek took us through the stunning landscape of the Annapurna region of Nepal. Our journey began with a drive to Chamje from Kathmandu, and from there, we started our trekking. Boundless Adventure managed everything on the trek well. Our accommodation was in a pleasant tea house where we got warm hospitality from the locals. Manang, Tilicho Base Camp, Tilicho Lake, and Mesokanta Pass were the highlights of our trekking. Our guide was knowledgeable and could speak English fluently. We got to know each part of the region during the trek through our guide. Our porters also did a great job carrying our loads and letting us walk freely. Boundless Adventure’s entire team was the reason for our successful trekking in Mesokanta Pass; we heartily want to thank them. Don’t hesitate if you are looking for a trusting Boundless Adventure for your trip to Nepal, as you won’t regret choosing them.

Mesmerizing allure of Mesokanta Pass trek

It’s me, Gabriel, from France. Seven friends and I recently completed our memorable trek to Mesokanta Pass in Nepal’s Himalayas. We had a pleasant time on the trek, and I am incredibly grateful to the crew members of Boundless Adventure. The team members were there for us throughout the journey from arrival to departure. I want to express my gratitude to Mr.Dambar for motivating us and taking care of us throughout the trip. The allure we saw during the trek was commendable. The stunning ancient villages, varied landscapes, and amazing mountain peaks were superb. Some parts of the trek were adventurous, but our guide absolutely did his best to make us comfortable and easy. I would highly recommend Boundless Adventure and Trekking in a Mesokanta pass.

A journey that changed my life

I booked my Mesokanta pass trek with Boundless Adventure through the Internet. I was solo and worried about my trek, but Mr.Dambar added me to another group. I thanked him for mixing me with another group, and because of his decision, I found my soulmate. It might sound weird, but I met my Generai, now my wife, on tour. We were on the same team; we trekked together and navigated through the adventurous trek together. Within a week, we fell in love with each other. So, Boundless Adventure is the name I will always remember.

The trek was stunning, like walking in heaven with Generai. Getting on Tilicho Lake, the highest lake in the world, and passing one of the adventurous passes while enjoying the view of  Mount Shya Gang, Khatung Kang, Yakwakang, and other surrounding peaks were the best parts of our trek. Boundless Adventure managed everything well; we didn’t need to worry about logistics. Instead, we focused on our trek and depended entirely on the team. My wife and I are planning for the Everest Base camp trek in the coming September, and without a doubt, we’ll choose Boundless Adventure.
