Annapurna Tilicho Pass Trekking - 21 Days

Annapurna Tilicho pass trekking is challenging trekking trail in Annapurna region. Annapurna Tilicho pass trek combines Tilicho base camp trekking with Annapurna circuit trekking trails. Tilicho pass trekking is known as Meso Kanto la pass trekking which offers beautiful Himalayan views of Mount Manaslu 8163m, Mount Dhaulagiri 8167m, Mount Annapurna I. 8091m & other 19 snowy capped mountains of Annapurna region. Tilicho Lake is one of those places that have had next to mythic connotations. Tilicho lake is the highest located lake (4912m) in the world so Annapurna Tilicho pass trekking becomes more popular trekking trail in Annapurna. Tilicho lake trekking was for long almost totally closed save for a few climbers and expeditions, and since 1974, when Nixon changed the China policy, part of the area above Thini on the Jomosom side became a very off-limits military area. From the Manang side, it was rarely if ever visited. The trekking path to Tilicho was “a figment of someone’s fantasy” and the locals in Manang had little knowledge of the route too, and were often thought to be slightly unfriendly, as they were known for not being particularly keen on working as human beasts of burden for various expeditions that had passed. When asked porter they had simply refused! Manang is no ordinary village. Its people are heavily involved in international trade, due to passport privileges granted in the past. Tilicho pass trekking route goes along the Marshangdi River and Gorge through the remote valley of Manang also known as the district behind the Mountains, to crest the arid, windswept northern flank of Annapurna at the Thorong-La. The route then passes through the Khanshar Village (The Last Village of Nepal). The trail goes through the most challenging pass “Moeso Kanta Pass” of Annapurna area to Jomsom.

Annapurna Tilicho pass trekking commences at Beshishar after 5-6 hour drive from Kathmandu. Himalaya Fair Reisen’s trekking guide led you through beautiful Marshayangdi valley via Chame Pisang manang Khangsar & finally reach highest located Tilicho lake (4912m).
