Tilicho base camp trek has everything, awesome views of the Annapurna Range, journey through Manang, Mustang, crossing the highest pass - Thorong La Pass (5416m) and highest altitude lake in the world - Tilicho Lake (4919m).
On this trek you will be amazed at the Tibetan-style architecture, holy places (temples) and the bull-shaped 108 water spouts in Muktinath – a place holy to Buddhists and Hindus. The trail begins in the lower sub-tropical regions and drastically changes as it reaches higher altitudes where the terrain is arid and more rugged with less vegetation. Manang, for example, has a colder dry climate due to its altitude. The highlight of this trek is undoubtedly the magnificent views of the towering Annapurna Ranges and the turquoise-colored Tilicho Lake.
This 16-day journey begins after your arrival in Kathmandu at which time we will drive to Syange and then start trekking towards Dharapani via Chame and Pisang before reaching Manang. From Manang we head to Khangsar and then on to Tilicho Base Camp (4,150mm) just below Tilicho Peak (7134m). From Base Camp, we head to Tilicho Lake before returning back to Base Camp. The following day we head to Yak Kharka Village and then climb to Thorong Phedi and after cross the arid windswept Thorong La Pass (5,416m). After crossing Thorong La Pass we trek down to Muktinath and ultimately Jomson before our flight back to Pokhara where we stay the night. The next day we fly to Kathmandu.

The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Manang & Mustang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

I have done Tilicho Lake Trek with Sherpa Company. If you love being immersed in nature and working hard for stunning mountain panoramic views, this trip is for you. The Nepali culture is incredible, the people are wonderful, the Indian-Chinese cuisine is great, and the landscape of Nepal is like no other. Bring lots of warm clothes and be prepared for rustic accommodations!
My guide was great, very patient and helpful. I would not have completed my trek without him. Sceneries along the trail was awesome. Will definitely recommend to friends! Thank!
