Tilicho Lake Trekking collects the glacial melt of the entire northern slopes of Annapurna and Thorang Peak, which is claimed to be the highest lake in the world. In 2001, Hindu pilgrims from around the world flocked to the lake convinced it is a holy spot mentioned in the Ramayan – a holy book of the Hindus.

Tilicho Lake Trekking starts right from Besisahar as Annapurna Circuit Trekking, which goes along the Marshyangdi River, with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. This magnificent Tilicho lake trekking leads you to the fine village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups, offering spectacular and majestic views of the white Himalayas. We have customized this route, as it is basically, the same as Annapurna Circuit, from Manang instead of taking the valley north to Tanki Manang and Yak Kharka this route goes to the main valley to the west passes through the Khanshar Village (The Last Village of Nepal) and trek up to Tilicho lake, then we travel to Yak Kharka then up to pass of Thorung La at elevation of 5416 meters. From the Thorung – La pass, the treks lead down to Muktinath then to Jomsom from where thirty-five minutes scenic flights take you to the Pokhara.

We cross over at an altitude of 5416 meters we can be exposed to strong winds if crossing too late. We start to climb steeply that is regularly used and easy to follow. However, the problem may arise due to the altitude and snow. It often causes terrible problems to cross the pass if it is covered by snow but it is all depending on the weather condition. About four hours climb up to the pass marked by the chortens & prayer flags. As you reach the top, you are rewarded by the magnificent view from the top with another 4 hours trek will take to the holy town of Muktinath.

Many thanks to Babu, Rufus, and Bunda for ensuring that we had a fantastic time in Nepal. Everything went very smoothly – all the way from the airport pickup, touring in Pokara & Kathmandu, the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, and the final airport drop-off. It was a great trip with spectacular scenery and something I would recommend to others. Keep up the service excellence. Regards

David and LisaAustralia

We’ve just been back from a fantastic trip of the Annapurna Sanctuary( Annapurna base camp). This is our first time in Nepal and Unique Path Trekking Agency did provide us an extraordinary trekking experience. They did provide us excellent mountain Guides with professional attitudes and strong mountain porters. We are very much impressed by the scenic mountains as well as the enthusiasm of the guide. The cook can do almost every style and it’s really tasty. We’re sure that we’ll come back to Nepal again to trek in the marvelous wild nature with them.

I spent three weeks on Annapurna Circuit trek. The Himalayas were so beautiful! It definitely exceeded my expectations. I came home with many nice memories. The whole trek passed without any problems or worries also thanks to proffesional and friendly approach of my guide Subash. Many thanks again. I am sure that once I will come back.

IvanCzechia

Unique Path have given twelve of us a fantastic Trek around Nepal. Our original destination of Annapurna base camp was unfortunately not possible because of avalanche but Babu arranged a brilliant alternative with a diversion to Tatopani and then a trip to Chitwan. The organization of the whole trip has been very professional and we would all highly recommend Unique Path to anyone considering a trip to Nepal.
