Tilicho Lake Trek is one of the best treks in the Annapurna Region. The Tilicho is the highest lake in the world, situated in Nepal’s Annapurna mountain range at an altitude of 4,919 metres. The lake collects the glacial melt of the entire Annapurna mountain range and is a spectacle you have to see to believe: the views across the lake are incredibly beautiful.
The Thorung La Pass is the highest point of the Annapurna circuit trek, 5,416 metres above sea level. It is the most popular pass chosen by trekkers wishing to circumnavigate Tilicho Lake.
We are delighted to offer our customers the opportunity to participate in a Tilicho Lake and Thorung La Pass trek. It is similar to the Annapurna circuit trek but offers more opportunities to enjoy lake views and explore the rich and various cultures of many small Nepalese mountain villages.
Incredible Views, Amazing Flora and Fauna
One of the most amazing factors of choosing this trek is the incredible array of flora and fauna that you can see on your journey. Visitors interested in native Nepalese wildlife often have the opportunity to see the Himalayan Mountains goat and the elusive snow leopard throughout the trek. Trekkers will also enjoy views of some of Nepal’s most famous peaks whilst enjoying high-quality dining and lodge sleeping experiences as part of their trek.
When to trek?
There is no bad time to take part in this journey. However, the best times of year to visit Nepal if you wish to take part in the Tilicho Lake and Thorung La Pass Trek are during the spring, autumn or winter seasons. Most visitors avoid taking part in this trek during the summer months of July and August, although the region is still very beautiful at this time.
The Tilicho Lake and Thorung La Pass Trek are considered very safe. Although some parts of the trek are considered strenuous, it is the ideal route for active adventurers and enthusiasts who have taken part in a mountain trek.
