Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the major trekking destinations in Nepal.  Annapurna Circuit trek itinerary includes Tilicho lake; a glacial lake seeping from the Annapurna and Tilicho mountain peaks. This lake is elevated at the height of 4919 m which was considered to be the world’s highest freshwater lake. But in 2019 another lake named Kajin Sara has been found and is considered to be at the height of 5020m.
 
The trek starts 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 majestic Manaslu and Himal Chuli peaks. The Tilicho Lake trekking trail leads you through the Gurung and Tibetan Buddhist villages, which offer the unique experience to discover their cultural values.  Manang village is renowned for preserving ancient cultural heritages of Himalayan Tibetan Buddhism. 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 view of Annapurna, Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Tilicho Peak, and glacial regions are seen from the pass. It is steep ascending to Thorong La and still challenging to descend to Muktinath. The trek offers the adventurous experiences of trekking in the Annapurna Himalayas. It leads up to Jomsom and flies to Pokhara.
 
Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake is an amazing vacation destination for its pristine landscape.  Vertex Holiday is dedicated to offering excellent services during the trekking packages to Tilicho Lake and Thorong La Pass in Nepal Trekking. 

Important Note

Due to the tough nature of the trekking route , it is advised not to attempt this trek alone . The high pass section region is prone to strong storms including a snow storm , therefore we advise to seek a professional help.
