Annapurna Circuit Trek extended to the highest altitude lake in the world – Tilicho Lake Trekking

If you admire the landscapes with the lakes, better try Tilicho Lake Trekking with us. The lake at the altitude of almost 5000m is the highest altitude lake in the world. Fed by the glaciers originated at Mt. Tilicho and Thorung peak Tilicho Lake is a scenic lake in the highlands of Annapurna Region.

Tilicho Lake Trek initially traverses through the authentic villages, which lie on globally famed Annapurna Circuit Trail. Kicking off the trek, we tread through the lush vegetation and rocky trails of Marsyangdi valley to Manang. Then we head towards Tilicho Lake. Enjoying the walk to the lake savoring the closest of the world’s highest lake that is surrounded by towering peaks, we trek back to the main trails of Annapurna Circuit Trek. Cross over the elevated Thorong La Pass 5416m, Tilicho lake trek slides down to the sacred temple of Muktinath.

The latter half of the trek winds through the deepest gorge of Kali Gandaki River and the Apple orchard of Nepal, Jomsom all the way down to Tatopani. Trekkers release the entire exhaustion at Tatopani with the refreshing bath at natural hot springs.

Jam-packed with natural vistas, rich floral and faunal biodiversity and cultures of different ethnical tribes, Tilicho Lake Trek is a challenging trekking adventure in Nepal that has more than everything a typical trekking in Nepal has to offer. Enjoy an offbeat destination on the most popular trekking trail of Nepal with the best trekking guides of Nepal Footprint Holiday.

I did the ABC trek with Bashu and it was just fantastic! Bashu is fluent in English and German and had in depth knowledge on all related questions that our group had on our trek. I will certainly come back to Nepal again and would book another trip with him in a heartbeat!

Last December 2015/January 2016 we made the 18 days EBC trek, together with guide Kumar of Nepal Footprint Holidays and our porter Sudeep. Both great guys!! We had a marvellous time and food and lodges were a perfect arrangement! Chitwan was a hell of a ride, but worth it. Parkland Hotel in Chitwan was 100 % the right choise!

Nepal Footprint might be a small company but nevertheless excellent! 10/10 we would contact them again for the ABC trek Annapurna in the future!!

I went several time in Nepal and I always take Nepal Footprint Holidaz Trek. Everything was amazing every time and I can not advise some one to go with an other agency.

Je me suis rendue au Nepal a maintes reprise, et je suis toujours partie en trek avec Nepal Footlprint Holiday. Thapalyia est super et tres professionel. Je ne peux que conseiller de choisir son agence afin de passer d excellentes vacances.

We selected Nepal Footprint holidays for our Annapurna Base camp Trek during Oct 2016. We had a great time with the very knowledgeable guide there. They really took care of us.
