Tilicho Lake Trek 12 Days with Thorong La Pass

Tilicho Lake Trek 12 Days with Thorong La Pass

Tilicho Lake trek is a stunning adventure trip in the Himalayas that takes you all the way up to the Tilicho Lake which is one of the highest lakes in the world. The lake is situated at 4949m in the beautiful Annapurna range of the Himalayas in Manang district of Nepal. The Tilicho Lake hiking tour is getting popular among the adventure seekers as the trek can be done as a teahouse trek. While doing Tilicho lake trek, no camping is required as new lodges have been built in the region.
Tilicho Lake base camp trek (12 days) begins with a local bus ride or a private jeep drive from Kathmandu to Chame, this is a small town with tourist standard guest houses, from where the trek really begins. The trek continues along the Marshyangdi River, with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. This magnificent trek leads you to the fine village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups, offering spectacular and majestic views of the white Himalayas. We have specially designed this route as it is basically the same as Annapurna Circuit, from Manang instead of taking the valley north to Tanki Manang and Yak Kharka this route goes to the main valley to the west passes through the Khanshar Village (The Last Village of Nepal) and trek up to Tilicho lake, then we trek to Yak Kharka then up to pass of Thorung La at elevation of 5,416m. From the pass of the Thorung La the treks lead down to Muktinath then to Jomsom from where we have a 35minute scenic flight to Pokhara.

Tilicho, the lake in the highest altitude in Nepal(4919m) is located in manang district of Nepal
