Tilicho Lake trekking is a trek to the world’s highest elevation lake in the northern part of the Annapurna Himalayan vicinity. Tilicho Lake is a collection of glacial drops that came from the impressive mountains Annapurna and Thorong Peak. It is mentioned as a holy spirit Lake, where Hindu devotees go for the worship and pilgrimage.  It is an enchanting trek through the villages, forests and alpine landscape.

The trek to Tilicho Lake commences from Chamje of Manang similar to the Annapurna Circuit Trekking and moves forward through the bank of the Marshyangdi River. During the trek, you can view the superb Manaslu and Himal Chuli. The Tilicho Lake trekking trail leads you through the Gurung and Tibetan Buddhist villages, which offer the unique experience to discover their religious practices and ethnic hospitality.  Manang village is renowned for preserving ancient cultural heritages and ethnic civilizations. The Khanshar village is located in the isolated region of the Annapurna Conservation Area, so it is regarded as the last settlement of Nepal. Continually, the trek leads to the Tilicho Base Camp and Tilicho Lake then retrace to the Yak Kharka and cross the Thorong La Pass (5416m). The views of Annapurna, Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Tilicho Peak, and glacial regions are seen stimulating. It is steep ascending to Thorong La and still challenging to descend to Muktinath. The trek offers the adventurous experiences of trekking in Annapurna Himalayas. It leads up to Jomsom and flies to Pokhara.

Tilicho Lake Trek is an excellent trip, which is a strenuous trip too. High altitude equipment and acclimatization are essential. Vertex Holiday is always dedicated to offering excellent services during the trekking packages to Tilicho Lake and Thorong La Pass in Nepal Trekking. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to trek in this area.
