On the way to Tilicho lake trekking, we would have passed through every type of vegetation zone from lush sub-tropical to harsh semi-desert and passed over one of the highest trekking passes in the world. We will have entered a world without roads or cars and witnessed the way people have worked, played and survived for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Tilicho lake trek starts right from Besisahar, which goes along the Marshyangdi river, with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. This magnificent trek in Annapurna conservation area leads you to the fine village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups, offering spectacular and majestic views of the white Himalayas. We have customized this route as it is basically the same as Annapurna circuit. From Manang instead of taking the valley north to Tanki Manang and Yak Kharka this route goes to the main valley to the west passes through the Khanshar village (The Last Village of Nepal) and trek up to Tilicho lake, then we travel to Yak Kharka then up to pass of Thorung La at elevation of 5416 meters. From the pass of Thorung La the treks lead down to Muktinath then to Jomsom from where thirty five minutes scenic flights take you to the Pokhara. From Tilicho lake you also have the option of crossing the challenging pass of Moesokanta La Pass” to Jomsom instead of traveling to Thorung La pass but good additional equipments with tented camp are require to go through this pass.
