Day 12:: Trek to Muktinath 3760m/12335ft via Thorung La Pass 5416m/17769ft
The big day of the trek is finally here. Today we start early and begin the trek uphill. We cross pass the high camp and begin to walk along the steep uphill trail. Uphill trail towards Thorung La Pass has dicey & icy section, which make trek even more challenging. However, the nature's display of Himalayan giants would continously motivate us until we reach the top of Thorung La Pass, 5416m, which is the highest point of the trek. Enjoy the magnificence of nature from the top of the pass. Himalayan peaks looming high as if they can touch the sky and the beauty of deep turquiose Tilicho lake would spellbind trekkers. We also witness the trace of human culture existing at such height seeing the fluttering prayer flags at the top of the pass.
Then we begin to slide down towards Muktinath. Muktinath is the common pilgrimage for Hindus, Buddhist, Bons and Jains. We shall accommodate ourselves in a teahouse at Muktinath.
