Trip Overview

The Tilicho Lake trek is an excellent alternative to the Annapurna Circuit Trek. This trek offers a similar experience, culminating at Tilicho Lake, Nepal’s highest lake at 4,920 meters. The lake provides dramatic and spectacular views, set against stunning mountain backdrops. Between September and May, its blue-green waters often reflect the surrounding peaks. During the colder months, Tilicho Lake is a solid, icy expanse at the base of Tilicho Peak (7,134 meters).

The trek begins in Besi Sahar, which is also the starting point for the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Travel to Besi Sahar via the Prithvi Highway until Dumre Bazaar, then turn right towards Besi Sahar. From there, the trail follows the Marshyangdi River, offering great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. After leaving Besi Sahar, the trail follows dirt roads before crossing the Marshyangdi River. You’ll reach the first Gurung village, Khudi, via stony steps, passing Puwa and joining Khudi Road. Bhulbhule is the first checkpoint for the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) permit. The trail involves walking on dirt roads for some stretches up to Manang.

The hike from Manang to Muktinath follows trekking trails. The adventure to Tilicho Lake offers stunning views of the lakes and the high snowbound ridges between Khangsar Kang and Nilgiri. The trail to Tilicho Base Camp is narrow and requires full attention. From there, you’ll move to Thorong La Pass, where you can see Mt. Gangapurna, Mt. Annapurna IV, and Mt. Annapurna III before the pass, and Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri afterward. The trail then leads to Muktinath, a sacred place for Hindus and Buddhists. On the way to Jomsom, you can explore ancient caves and monasteries. Finally, a 25-minute scenic flight from Jomsom takes you to Pokhara.
