Introduction

Tilicho Base Camp Trek is a perfect package of trekking in the Annapurna Region of Nepal, which takes you through Manang, Mustang, Thorong La Pass, and visit the highest altitude lake in the world, Tilicho Lake. Perched at an elevation of 4,919m in the Annapurna range of the Central Nepal Himalaya, It stretches for 4km long, 1km wide and lies at the foot of Tilocho peak 7,134 meters. This trek introduces you to the pure culture of Annapurna Region, new climate and vegetation, magnificent views of Annapurna range, and the sublime beauty of the tranquil lake, Tilicho Lake. Along with Tilicho Lake, Thorung La Pass, Tibetan Culture, most famous Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site, Muktinath and majestic mountains including Annapurna II, III, IV Thorang La, Gangapurna and Tilicho Peak are the main highlights of Tilicho Base Camp Trek.

Tilicho Base Camp Trek starts with a scenic drive to Besishahar which is located in the Lamjung district of Nepal in the western region. From Besisahar, we walk along with Marshyangdi river valley enjoying mesmerizing views of Manaslu and Himchuli on the eastern side. The trek moves forward crossing several small beautiful villages with Tibetan influenced culture like Jagat, Tal, Cahame, Upper Pisang, Manang, Khangsar, etc to reach Tilicho Base Camp. From Tilicho Lake, we ascend towards Thorung la 5416m, which is the second-longest and difficult pass in the world. From Thorung La Pass, we descend towards Muktinath, the most famous pilgrimage place in the region. Then we follow Kali Gandaki gorge, the deepest gorge in the world to reach Jomsom, trek to Tatopani and drive to Pokhara to end our trek.

Accommodation

Accommodations during the Tilicho Base Camp Trek are at teahouses which are necessarily teahouses but where you'll feel like a home and get a chance to explore Nepali culture and tradition. All the teahouses are run by locals and provide all the basic facilities including a hot shower at a low extra charge. As you go more up accommodation facilities are declined as in mountain regions it's hard to provide all the facilities but you'll find all the room simple and comfortable usually with two beds with a mattress blanket and pillows. Some will have an en-suite bathroom but most have shared bathrooms with the squat toilet in mountain areas. During your stay in Kathmandu, accommodation is more luxurious where you'll be staying in a single room with attached bathrooms,  24 hours hot water, power,  TV, and laundry facility.
