“Tilicho Lake+Thorang La pass Trek ”
My friend and I decided to walk the additional 4 days to reach Tilicho Lake at almost 5000m, which were really worth it. 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.
