About This Tour

Nestled at a breathtaking altitude of 4970 meters above sea level, Tilicho Lake proudly holds the title of the highest lake globally. Situated on the southwestern ridge of the renowned Annapurna Circuit, this pristine destination captivates the hearts of adventurous souls. Its allure lies in its remoteness, challenging trekking trails, and demanding ascent, making it a shadowy yet irresistible spot for Annapurna trekkers.

The newly paved road to Manang Valley has transformed this region into an exciting segment of the Annapurna Circuit's new route. Embark on an eco-friendly journey, driving to Chame, walking through Tilicho Base Camp, and reaching Tilicho Lake via Pisang, Manang, and Khangsar Village. Continue your trek to Yak Kharka, following the upper route, providing awe-inspiring panoramic views of the Manang Valley and the Annapurna Himalayan range. Conquer the Thorong La Pass, descend to Muktinath, and then drive to Tatopani through the captivating Kaligandaki Valley.

The trekking trail from Jomsom to Tatopani has been marred by off-road tracks, but fear not. Climb to Ghorepani, indulge in a natural hot bath in Tatopani, and relish the stunning Himalayan vistas of the Annapurna Massif, Dhaulagiri Range, and Manaslu Himalaya. This is your chance to embark on the Annapurna Circuit's new route, blending adventure with sustainability.
