Trek Details

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(4,919m) provides with the beautiful mountain glaciers and the spectacular view of the Himalayas. Tilicho Lake Trek via Annapurna Circuit will be the easiest route for Annapurna Circuit Trek.


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 4,200m. 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.

This was challenging a trip to Tilicho Lake through the Annapurna Circuit with superb rewards of high altitude views of both the lake and its snowbound ridge between Khangsar Kang and Nilgiri North. After searching for many agent tours that provide trekking in Nepal, we finally decided to use Happy Land treks. The team was good, and the view was just amazing. Happyland was a great help throughout the trip, and they also assigned a fantastic guide to me. I can’t wait to go on another fantastic trek with them next year.

The Annapurna region offers some of the greenest scenery for trekkers. The view of the Annapurna mountain peaks is sublime and is quite visible from different spots during the trek, making the overall trekking experience even more enjoyable. We also had an amazing experience with the HappyLand Treks. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. They made sure we were well taken good care of, picked the best tea houses and food, and kept an eye on our overall health. We both agree that the money was well worth it, and our experience was much better, having used HappyLand. What can we say we are very impressed by the experience! Thanks HappyLand Treks!

I did the Tilicho Lake Trek via Annapurna Circuit organized by Happyland Treks. They were accommodating, they helped me organize my trip within the very limited time that I had and manage the schedule and the itinerary to match my interests. I also had an incredible guide. He was very knowledgeable. He had the answer to everything about the landscapes, the culture, and religion. Before the trail, he gave all the necessary advice and support to make sure we completed the trail the best way possible. On the trail, he was very attentive to our body signals and adjusted the speed accordingly. I had a great experience in the Annapurna region, mostly because of his expertise.

“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.
