Trekking to Tilicho Lake is a combination of the spectacular view of the majestic Annapurna range and the ethnic cultures of Nepal. Tilicho Lake is the lake situated at the highest point (4920m) of Trans Himalayan zone in Nepal.
The trekking route takes you along the breath taking valley of Manang which is inhabited by the Tibetans who have different culture and customs. Trekking to Tilicho Lake was restricted to the foreigner by the government as no one was allowed to publicize the place and so not many people have the knowledge about the entire region.
The Annapurna Conservation Area Project is working with the locals of this region to provide a suitable environment for tourism. The Annapurna Round Trek to Tilicho Lake takes you to the lake, located at the highest point. The lake is formed by the glacier melt of Mt. Annapurna and has a historical importance to the Hindus as it is mentioned in the holy book of Ramayan. The lake is about 4 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide and lies at the foot of 7134m summit, Tilicho Peak. The mountain goat, known as Himalayan Thar, and the snow leopard can be spotted along the trekking route. The breath taking view of the magnificent Tilicho Lake will make you forget the challenges of the trek. So despite of being one of the most challenging treks in Nepal, Annapurna Round Trek to Tilicho Lake is also the most rewarding one.
