Overview

Tilicho Lake is the highest lake in the world. It is situated in Nepal’s Annapurna mountain range and has an altitude of 4,919 metres. The lake collects the glacial melt of the entire Annapurna mountain range and is a spectacle you have to see to believe: the views across the lake are incredibly beautiful.

The Thorung La Pass is the highest point of the Annapurna circuit trek (sitting at 5,416 meters above sea level) and is the most popular pass chosen by trekkers wishing to circumnavigate the Tilicho Lake. We are delighted to offer our customers the opportunity to take part in a Tilicho Lake and Thorung La Pass trek, which is very similar to the Annapurna circuit trek, but with more opportunity to enjoy lake views and explore the rich and diverse culture within many small Nepalese mountain villages.

Highly recommended professional service
Me and my partner visited Nepal during May 2020 with Everest Tour Nepal Treks & Expedition. We were very happy with the service, arrangement of vehicle, hotel, inclusion of sightseeing monuments at the same time free time for us to enjoy the beauty. And top of it, it was privately customized at our budget. We definitely recommend Everest Tour Nepal Treks & Expedition to other travelers and we would like to thank Mr. Navaraj for the nice coordination.
