Tilicho Lake Trekking

At nearly 5000m above sea level, Lake Tilicho, situated high up in the scenic Manang Valley is the collected glacial melt of the entire northern slopes of Annapurna and Thorong Peak. In 2001, Hindu pilgrims from around the world flocked to the lake convinced it is a holy spot mentioned in the Ramayan, a holy book of the Hindus. The pilgrims believe that this is the lake that is referred to in the Ramayan where the crow recited the Ramayan to Garuda and where Shiva found solace after the death of his consort Sati. While Tilicho does not hold religious significance for the local Buddhist population, herders often make their way to the lake in search of straying yak.

Tilicho is not a prohibited area but by virtue of its remoteness and altitude, few tourists take off the popular Annapurna circuit to hike up to the lake which lies within the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). Roughly a day and a half walk from Manang Village, visitors are treated to spectacular views of the icy ramparts of Annapurna and Tilicho peak glaciers which plunge down to the lake itself. The shores of this idyllic, crystal-clear lake, dotted with wildflowers in spring, are ideal for camping. Visitors coming in from Manang Village, usually spend a night in Khangsar, a small village on the way before they hike along the rugged and picturesque route to the base of the lake where there are a couple of lodges.

Nepal is an extremely diverse country for its size. The temperature here can range from extremely hot (37-40C) in the lower Terai regions, to negative temperatures in the northern, mountainous regions. Feb-May & Sept-Nov are prime trekking times due to the lovely climate. There is ample sun in the day time, and only slightly chilly at night. Monsoon (June-Aug) can get very hot and humid-with showers usually in the early morning and late afternoon.
