Tilicho Trek

Tilicho Lake Trek takes you to the highest point of the world Lake in Nepal.The Tilicho Lake situated in 4,919m collects the glacial melt of the Mt Annapurna and Thorong-la pass 5,416m.

It is about 4 km long 1 km wide and lies at the foot of 7,134m summit. It is one of the challenging treks here in Nepal.
