Tilicho Lake is one of the most stand out trekking destinations in Nepal.

The lake is formed by the glacial melt of the northern slope of Annapurna mountain and Thorong Peak, it also provides historical and religious importance. The lake is located in an isolated area within the Annapurna region, making the trek one of the most adventurous and picturesque in the district. Trekking Tilicho Lake adds extra altitude practice and preparation to cross Thorong La Pass/ Thorong Peak later on this trek route.

Tilicho lake trekking route attaches with the Annapurna circuit, you will be provided with even more incredible scenery and opportunity to witness animals such as, the Himalayan mountain goat, yaks, species of birds and many more along the way to complete Thorong La Pass and Thorong Peak.

For the more adventurous, this package also offers the climb of the spectacular Thorong Peak, which stands at 6144m and is ideally situated in the heart of the Annapurna region, just above Thorong La Pass. This is a real climbing experience for those with a reasonable level of fitness. We will have a day for preparation and brief on climbing techniques to ensure everyone is prepared for a safe and successful climb. Upon reaching the summit you will then be rewarded with the most breathtaking views of the Himalayas…. and a huge sense of accomplishment, rightly to be celebrated!
