Do You Need a Guide?

Well, the Himalayan range is home to some of fascinating lakes of various sizes and shapes. Located at multiple altitudes, surrounded by the snowy wilderness, and treacherous snow terrains and glaciers, these lakes test the trekking acumen and physical endurance of the trekkers to the fullest extent.

Yes, indeed, getting to those lakes is exceptionally challenging, and Tilicho Lake is just one of them. That is the reason, to get to this lake you need to be a good trekker with sound knowledge about the technicalities of trekking.
Even then, you need to have an experienced guide and need to be a part of the guided tour of a seasoned touring and travelling company. That is why Nepal Base Camp Treks Pvt. Ltd. comes up as one of the most favoured names when it comes to scaling the Himalayan heights and getting to the Tilicho Lake.

The journey…and the Challenges

While trekking towards the lake, you have to get past the glacial melts of the entire northern slopes of the Thorang and the Annapurna Peak.

Then, the trekking trail leads you to the astounding hamlets inhabited by a wide range of Himalayan tribes from various ethnic groups including the Gurung, Thakalis and Maga groups of locals. Besides, the trek also offers majestic views of the mighty Himalayas.

During the trekking, you can opt to cross the highly challenging Mesokanto La Pas and get to the Jomsom valley, rather than travelling to Thorung La pass. However, if you choose this trek, you need a wide array of equipment, including tenting and an experienced guide. The Tilicho lake trek cost will vary depending upon the route you take, and you need to talk to us regarding your choice. Another good alternative for the trekkers should be the 16 day trek to Tilicho Base Camp.

We have the infrastructure to make arrangements accordingly.
