Trip Overview


Tilicho Lake Trek is an area of rough and wild beauty. The hi9gh altitude route via Tilicho Lake is a demanding. From Manang the trails to the lake are gradually being improved and there is a semi-operational lodge at the base of the first pass meaning that we could visit the lake as a side-trip without camping. This side trip provides good acclimatization for crossing the Thorung La. During the season two lodges are generally open at Tilicho Base Camp. Norma trekkers should stay in Khangsar to acclimatize and then head via Thare monastery to Tilicho Base Camp. The lower trail is spectacular but loose and unstable. Across the stand zone, where oddly shaped pinnacles stand like sentinels. From Tilicho Base Camp its an arduous and steep climb to the chorten view point  (500 m) and on to the main viewpoint. The deep blue water of Tilicho Lake (4920 m) is an amazing spectacle, with glaciers draping the icy wall of the Grand Barrier and Tilicho Peak.

Return to Base Camp and the next day head back to IKhangsar and or Manang. With those lazy days at Manang over, all energy is focused on the Thorong La.
