An Entirely Different World
Tilicho Lake is a popular destination of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. The trek to Tilicho diverts from the Annapurna Circuit at Manang whereby we take a southward route to Khangsar. From Khangsar, we walk further upwards to reach the Tilicho Base Camp. From there, we have to ascend again to reach the Tilicho Lake. The trail to the lake is quite adventurous as we walk through a ridge along a slope. The path is unique as there is nothing except stones and sand. However, you’ll continuously see the views of the Annapurna Range and Tilicho Himal itself.
Tilicho Trek starts from Besisahar and goes along the Marsyangdi River. The lake is surrounded by the peaks Khangsar, Nilgiri, Tilicho and Muktinath. Tilicho Lake also has a religious significance as the sage Kak Bhusundi mentioned in the Ramayana is believed to have resided here. It is formed by the melted glaciers of the northern slopes of Annapurna, along with the Thorang Peak. In addition, we will see some fantastic views of mountains such as Manaslu and Himculi.
