Overview

Annapurna Circuit With with  Tilicho Lake is combined trek with the highest lake in the world which is located at an altitude 4,919m/16,138ft and the high Annapurna pass known as Thorang La which is 5,415m/17,769ft. Tilicho Lake is little bit off the main Annapurna Circuit Trek. So, less people travel there. It is the best ides to do this combined trek. This is challenging trek so mental and physical preparation is required.

Trek to Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake begins from Kathmandu as your flight will be landing here.  The next morning, we catch bus to Jagat via Besisahar enjoying the beautiful villages, rivers, forest, rocky mountain, snow peak mountains, and terraced farms. Jagat (1,300m/4,265ft) is our trek starting point. Then continue walk to Manang where extra day required for acclimatized purpose. This day we will not be resting at the lodge, we will be trekking to Ice Lake or Glacier view point. It is necessary to follow the rule of CLIMB HIGH SLEEP LOW. Then we leave the main Annapurna Trail towards Tilicho Lake. Stop over Siri Kharka (4,060m/13,320ft) for a night before reaching to Tiliocho Base Camp. Then continue further up to Tilicho Base Camp (4,150m/13,583ft) where you will be spending your night before Tilicho Lake.  Next day arrive Tilicho lake (4,919m/16,138ft) where you will be enjoying the views of the mountains with Great Ice Lake, Tilicho. During the winter season you will see all ice on it but if you plan in September to November and April to May you will see blue, Crystal clear lake. Then trek back to the main Annapurna Trail to Yak Kharka to proceed the Thorang La Pass. Stop at High Camp before Thorang La pass 5(,415m/17,769ft) which makes easy to pass. Th trail leads downhill after the top of Thorang la to Muktinath (3,760m/12,623ft) which has holi temple for both Buddhist and Hindu.
We will take transport to Tatopani where the Hot Spring is located because it is not fun to walk on a road. But if you wish to walk then it takes 3 days to walk to Tatopani mostly on the road. Please contact us if you wish to walk. Tatopani has natural hot spring where we will be taking bath. Religiously it is important believe we. Wash all sins when we take bath at hot spring. Then trek up to Ghorepani Poon hill to experience the best sunrise. Finally, trek down to Nayapul to catch private transport to Pokhara for relaxing night before long bus journey to Kathmandu. Farewell dinner in Kathmandu with Trek Ways Nepal owner. Adventure to Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho lake ends while we drop you off at the airport for your onward flight.
