About Trip

Annapurna circuit trekking with Tilicho lake is beautiful combination of trekking in the Annapurna region. The Tilicho Lake is located at 5200m from the sea level, which is claimed to be the lake located at the highest altitude in the world. The glacial melting from the Thorong La peak and from the Mt. Annapurna  are formed into  blue icy lake of Tilicho. The clear icy blue lake reflects the surrounding mountains which is so unique and beautiful. Also the Tilicho lake offers great view of Annapurna range and of an entire valley of Manang.
