Trip Overview

The 17 days Annapurna Circuit Trek combined with the high altitude Tilicho Lake is one of the best treks of the Annapurnas. 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 diverse 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 of Muktinath along with the impressive sceneries of the Annapurna peaks from the vantage point of Poon Hill.

The trek starts at Kathmandu, takes us to Jagat via Beshisahar. The drive gives us a good impression and insight into the rural lifestyle and culture, further 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 to the fascinating Trek in 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 has significant spiritual and religious importance for people. We also walk up to the Muktinath temple, where the famous 108 water taps constructed in the shape of a cow’s head and two small pounds. Both the Hindu and Buddhist people believe taking the spiritual bath frees oneself from the sins committed in the past life. The trek ends with a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara returning back to Kathmandu, where our Annapurna Tilicho Lake Trek ends.

Join the Nepal Hiking Team for a rewarding experience you would not want to miss. The journey takes you to majestic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range and extends its route to the far northern peaks to the Tibetan plateaus. Be accompanied by professionals of the region and meet the locals in an adventure to the isolated villages, glorious mountain peaks, and rich biodiversity. Embrace your true adventure spirit as you travel in one of the most heard and explored Annapurna regions, traveling across different monasteries, hot springs, holy and sacred lakes of Nepal.
