Tilicho Lake Trek

Tilicho Lake Trek Overview

What could match the thrill of standing before the world’s highest altitude lake? Tilicho Lake, at almost 5,000 meters above sea level, is a pristine glacier lake with the backdrop of the Himalayas range. The Tilicho Lake Trek is a Journey to the foothills of the world’s 10th highest mountain, i.e. Annapurna.

Every step you take from Kathmandu brings you to the proximity of the Himalayas, and that’s the most beautiful feeling in the world. The trek is not just about the Himalayas and the Lake. It is also about the swift-flowing rivers and cascading waterfalls on the trail.

The occasionally opening portions of terraced farmlands close to the classic Manang village are a thrill. Once you walk outside the forest, you witness very distinct alpine vegetation.
