HIGHLIGHTS
  • Reach Tilicho Lake, one of the highest lakes in the world
  • Cross the highest pass in the world, Thorong La
  • Enjoy panoramic views of the Annapruna Range and Dhaulagiri
  • Take a scenic transHimalayan flight from Jomson to Pokhara
Tilicho Lake, at 4,920 m, collects the glacial melt of the entire northern slopes of Annapurna and Thorong Peak. The lake sits at the foot of an extensive glacier system of the great barrier, the highest point of which is Tilicho Peak (7,134 m). It is one of the highest lakes in the world. The glaciers terminate in a vertical wall of ice 70m high that forms the west shore of the lake.

This 19-day guided trek takes you across two contrasting landscapes: the lush Manang and the barren Mustang, while passing Tilicho Lake, one of the highest in the world, and Thorong La Pass, the highest pass in the world.

This challenging trip is an adventurous add on to the Annapurna Circuit and offers superb panoramic views of the Himalayas between Khangsar Kang (7,485 m) and Nilgiri North (7,061m). The route takes us through diverse villages, lush forests, and awe-inspiring arid hills with the snow-capped Himalayas in the background.

The trek starts from Besisahar and passes along the Marshyangdi River with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. Our trek route goes to the Manang valley to the west, passes through the Khanshar Village and ascends to Tilicho Lake before coming down and passing Thorong La at an elevation of 5,416 m. After the pass, the trek descends to Muktinath from where we drive to Jomsom and take a scenic flight to Pokhara, the Lake City.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
