Tilicho Lake Trekking is popular as one of the most rewarding and classical journey to exotic Tilicho Lake located at an elevation of (4920m). Moreover, this is a journey to a serene turquoise lake located in the high Himalayan region of Manang. Tilicho Lake is widely acclaimed as a sacred lake in Ramayan– a holy book of Hindu. So, the trip to Tilocho Lake is both natural and spiritual journey.
Tilicho Lake Trekking not only takes us to the high Himalayan lake, Tilicho but also offers the magnificent view of mountain peaks including Lamjung Himal 6932m, Annapurna II 7939m, Annapurna IV 7525m, Annapurna III 7555m, Gangapurna 7454m, and other major snow-blanketed peaks. We also have an opportunity to explore a diverse tradition and culture of beautiful Tibetan settlements and people. Mesokanto La Pass 5120m also popular as Tilicho Pass is a challenge to the trekkers. However, the mesmerizing landscapes, picturesque Tibetan settlements and most significant, hugely snow-fed mountain peaks are fabulous.
As Tilicho Lake Trekking is a part of Annapurna Circuit Trekking, this trekking commences from Besisahar after we drive for 7-8 hours from Kathmandu. Then we follow the trail along Marshyangdi River all the way to Manang. Trekkers normally take a day rest at Manang for acclimatization and further exploration of premises. Then we catch the north-west trail and head to Tilicho Lake Base Camp and a serene and turquoise color lake, Tilicho Lake. The tranquillity around the surrounding is really impressive.
