    Trip Overview

    The 17-day Annapurna Circuit Trek, combined with the high-altitude Tilicho Lake, is one of the best treks in Annapurna. The trek takes you into the gorges of the Kali Gandaki, one of the deepest on the planet, and the beautiful sapphire lakes of Tilicho, one of the highest lakes on Earth. On route, we encounter a wide range of rich and diverse cultural settlements and terrains when walking in the heart of the Annapurna region. The Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake offers the most varied terrains, ranging from sub-tropical woodlands to dry and arid landscapes when traveling higher. The circuit trek with the views of the Tilicho Lake lets you get on a spiritual escape to Muktinath, along with the impressive sceneries of the Annapurna peaks from the vantage point of Poon Hill.

    The trek starts at Kathmandu and takes us to Jagat via Beshisahar. The drive gives us a good impression and insight into the rural lifestyle and culture, extending to Pisang and acclimatizing at Manang. We reach the Tilicho Base Camp (4140 m.) via Siri Kharka and continue our journey towards the Lake. Sitting at an elevation of 4970 meters, Tilicho Lake is one of the major highlights of this trek. Even popular as one of the most trekked destinations in Nepal, the Lake has its peculiar glow reflected in the water. The Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake takes us on a fascinating Trek in the Manang region via the Thorong La pass as we hike up to the cerulean waters of Tilicho Lake. The trek can sometimes get demanding as you ascend to higher altitudes from difficult passes. However, the trekking trails are filled with landscapes and sights that feel surreal while making the journey.

    The arduous journey encompasses famous landmarks like Manang, Muktinath, and Nepal's windiest valleys; Jomsom is of significant spiritual and religious importance to people. We also walk up to the Muktinath temple, where the famous 108 water taps are constructed in the shape of a cow's head and two small pounds. Both the Hindu and Buddhist people believe taking a spiritual bath frees oneself from the sins committed in the past life. The trek ends with a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, returning to Kathmandu, where our Annapurna Tilicho Lake Trek ends.

    Join the Nepal Hiking Team for a rewarding experience you would want to experience. The journey takes you to majestic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges and extends its route to the far northern peaks of the Tibetan plateaus. Be accompanied by region professionals and meet the locals on an adventure to the isolated villages, glorious mountain peaks, and rich biodiversity. Embrace your true adventure spirit as you travel in one of Nepal's most heard and explored Annapurna regions across different monasteries, hot springs, and holy and sacred lakes.

    Route Overview

    The adventure begins in Kathmandu, Nepal's bustling capital. After a day of exploring the city and adjusting to the altitude, we will take a scenic drive to Jagat, a small village settled within the foothills of the Himalayas.

    The real adventure starts with a trek from Jagat to Dharapani. We'll cross suspension bridges over gushing rivers and soak in the beauty of the surrounding villages. Each day promises something new, from the Tibetan-style houses of Bagarchhap to the breathtaking mountain views from Timang.

    The trek gradually climbs towards Manang, a village located at over 3,300 meters. We'll have a dedicated acclimatization day in Manang to help our bodies adjust to the thinner air. This might involve exploring the village, hiking nearby trails, or simply relaxing and enjoying the fresh mountain air.

    One of the trek's highlights is a detour to Tilicho Lake. This stunning turquoise lake, snuggled at the foot of a towering peak, is considered sacred by Hindus. The hike will be challenging, but the views of the surrounding mountains will be worth it.

    The trek ends with the ultimate challenge- crossing the Thorung La Pass, the highest point on the circuit at a staggering 5,416 meters. It'll be a steep climb, but the panoramic views from the top will be breathtaking.

    From the pass, we'll descend to the village of Muktinath, a sacred pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists. We'll then fly to Pokhara, a beautiful lakeside town, for a well-deserved rest before returning to Kathmandu.
