Tilicho Lake

TILICHO LAKE

Tilicho Lake Tilicho Lake Trekking is a popular trekking destination in the Annapuran region of Nepal as the trekking takes the trekkers to the famous Tlilicho Lake of Nepal. Tilicho Lake is the highest lake in the world, at 5200m. Besides the natural beauty of the Tilicho Lake, located in the Annapurna Region in Manang District of Western Nepal, it also provides the splendid views of the mountains like the Annapurna, Mount Machhapuchhre and Mount Dhaulagiri, among others. The beautiful image of various mountains reflected in the clear water of Tilicho Lake is one of the wonders of the trekking.The lake lies on the north side of the Annapurna Himal, just below Tilicho Peak (7134m). This trek takes us through two of the least visited mountain passes in Nepal, then ascend up to 5500 m and get the best views of Manaslu,Himchuli, Peak 29 and many others.
The route of Tilicho Lake Trekking follows the popular Annapurna Circuit trail until Manang Valley from where the trail parts its way to Khangsar Village. Besides the adventure and natural beauty on offer, the visitors will also have the opportunity to spot and see the wild animals like the Himalayan Thar, snow leopard, barking deer, among others, making the trip a memorable one.Reaching it is not easy as the route rises to the Mesukantu-La pass at 5300m.But it is an exciting and beautiful route, It is very technical, particularly the downhill section from the Mesukantu-La, and we do not recommend it for beginners, but with views of peaks at over 8000m and a variety of landscapes, plants and animals, it is well worth the effort. At night we stay in either village lodges or camps.Around Annapurna and Tilicho lake trekking takes you to the popular route via Besisahar to Manang with exciting sceneries on the way up.We have rest day in Manang before we head up to spectacular Tilicho Lake for three days via Khangsar. Having spent a day exploring around Tilicho Lake, we continue to Thorung Phedi and Thorung la.This trek completes after taking you to the spectacular Ghorpani – Ghandruk to Pokhara.
