The tour Annapurna, Nar & Tilicho Lake starts from and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking trip that takes 22 days taking you through Kyang, Manang, Besisahar and 17 other destinations in Nepal. Annapurna, Nar & Tilicho Lake is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

An adventurous trek in the Annapurnas to the seldom visited Nar Phu region and spectacular Tilicho Lake. Our most comprehensive and what we consider the best of the Annapurna's! This trip is for those craving an unforgettable adventure through lush forests, soaring mountain peaks, the finest views of glaciers, high pass crossings and a deep cultural experience. We venture off the highly trekked trails of the classic Annapurna circuit and into the rugged and secluded valleys of Naar and Phu. The villages we pass are enriched with influence from Tibetan inhabitants of the north, a stark contrast to the Hindu villages dotted throughout the lower foothills. We trek along ridges looming below the grandeur of surrounding 6000m peaks and cross Kang La pass (5320m). We head up the valley and traverse a series of scree slopes to the highest lake for its size in the world; the sacred Tilicho Lake (4920m) nestled at the foot of Tilicho Peak (7130m). We continue into the heart of the Annapurnas, our path to Mesokanto La affords stadium views as we are sandwiched between the world's highest mountain range. Rugged, remote and rewarding, this is Himalayan trekking at its absolute finest!

“Annapurna, Nar & Tilicho Lake was a wonderfull trek. Walking from lush green scenery, up through beautiful forests, above the tree line and onto the snow was a great experience. Tilicho Lake in the snow was beautiful. Thanks to Juddah and his team for a fantastic trek.”

“A physical and mentally challenging journey through some of Nepal most remote and isolated regions. The scenery changes as you ascend and the remote villages, the people and high passes are exceptional. If you like a challenge and a well managed expedition this is for you!”
