Annapurna Circuit Trek has always been one of the favorite treks in the Eastern Himalayas. Even among the different routes, the side trip to Tilicho Lake(5,200m) provides with the beautiful mountain glaciers and the spectacular view of the Himalayas.
We start our trek from Besisahar as we move north to the village of Manang and pass the village of Khangsar. Moving up the trails, we reach Tilicho base camp situated at the height of 4,900m. Trekkers can witness the miraculous Hiunchuli to the east and Annapurna Ranges and Mt. Macchapuchhre (6,993m) at a distance. From TIlicho basecamp, Tilicho Lake is few stretches up. The beautiful Tilicho Lake is blessed with pristine water, clear and cold, and with the beautiful snow-capped mountains from all sides, the view is breathtaking. We can also cross Thorong La (5,416m) and return via Muktinath and Kagbeni, making this extended trip one you will never forget.
With the view of the Annapurna Massif, this route also enables trekkers to witness one of the most uncharted water in the world.

We found the path leading there less crowded than the usual circuit which is very pleasing. The staff members from Happyland Treks took care of everything even before we arrived in the country, leaving us free of stress and free to enjoy the few days we had prior to the trek in Kathmandu.
