Reviews of Khangsar

A small village full of authenticity in the Himalayas which you can reach on the walking tour of the Annapurnas.

My suggestion:
I'm not a big fan of hiking poles but I think that on this part of the trek they were really useful to me: here the paths are steep and the ground slippy.
Summary:

The only reason that will lead you to the charming village of Khangsar is that you've chosen to change the basic walking itinerary to do a trip to Tilicho Lake. This wouldn't be the worst idea ever: the detour is a little more sporty than the rest of the trek but it's really worth it! It's up to you to decide if you want to pass through here when you're preparing your Nepalese itinerary. 

I stopped off here for a second breakfast after leaving from Manang to go towards the base camps leading to the lake. It was surprising to see the village not living off tourism like the most part of the villages that I'd crossed through during my walk (which can be summarised, as you'll see, as endless tea houses). There's one hotel and not a single restaurant: no tourists either. I almost wanted to stop off there for the rest of the day but the call to continue walking was stronger!

I must add that I visited Nepal after the 2015 earthquake so it is possible that places have changed a lot since then.
