“Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake – Mesmerizing diversified adventurous trekking trail of Nepal”

The Annapurna Circuit Trek consistently ranks among the world's most famous treks. You will have an easy walk to begin with, before the path connects Kaligandaki to the Marsyangdi River valley. The incredibly adventurous Thorung La pass, located at a height of 5416 m, is a special highlight of the trek.

Enroute the trek, we will see a variety of sceneries and zones that range from subtropical to alpine terrains. We will also encounter diverse ecosystems, different cultures and varying landscapes ranging from lush paddy fields and oak forests to rough mountain terrain. And finally, we get to trek the Kaligandaki gorge, the deepest gorge in the world!

The Annapurna Circuit trek offers an extraordinary panorama of Annapurna (8,097 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Manaslu, Machhapuchhre and Tukuche together with many other stunning peaks in the background. The trek is extremely beautiful, with numerous orchid forests surrounding the trail, and rhododendrons covering entire hills in their typical red hue in the spring.

Moreover, you get to observe a variety of wildlife including snow leopards, mountain thar, jackal, blue sheep, different species of birds including colored Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant, and several species of butterflies and insects. In total, 100 mammals, more than 60 reptiles and amphibians, 450 species of birds, and 9 types of rhododendrons are indigenous to this region.

Likewise, the Tilicho Lake, recognized as the highest lakes in the world, is located at an eye-catching spot in the Annapurna region at an elevation of 4919 m. While trekking to the scenic Manang valley, the Thorung Peak and Annapurna can also be witnessed.

This uneven but beautiful trail will let you observe the crystal-clear Tilicho Lake, a lush spread of wildflowers, and stunning views of great Himalayan peaks. The unique combination of nature and culture is what makes the Annapurna Circuit with the side trip of Tilicho Lake trek one of the most famous trekking routes in the world.
