Overview

One of the most popular side excursions on the Annapurna Circuit trek leads to Tilicho Lake. The hike will take 3–4 days longer. There is no need for a tent because new lodges have been built between Manang and the lake. The final approach to the lake is a day hike from Tilicho Base Camp's lodging.

Thorong La Pass is 5416 meters high. The alternative path, which skirts Tilicho Lake from the north, is gathering traction. This is a more difficult path that necessitates at least one night of camping.

For your satisfaction, we've included the most picturesque routes. We've made certain you don't miss out on the essence of the location.
