Annapurna Region Trek
Globally renowned trekking site in Nepal is no other than Annapurna region which comprises of three major trekking routes lying towards the north of central Nepal: Jomsom, Annapurna Sanctuary, and a circuit of the Annapurna Himal itself. The diverse terrain and the communities with varieties of cultures of the region make this area the most popular trekking areas of Nepal. You are definitely rewarded by sensational mountain scenery, tops are Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna (8091m), Manaslu (8156m), Lamjung Himal (6983m), Machapuchhre (6993m), Tukuche Peak (6920m), Tilicho Peak (7134m), Nilgiri (6940m) and complex assortment of traditional cultural. The Kaligandaki passing between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri is the deepest gorge in the world. Cultural variety from Hindu communities to Buddhist, Aryans to Mongols, famous Gorkha soldiers, fortresses, villages, valleys, most rainy areas to the rain shadow areas of Nepal –all with extreme contrasts from each other make each day’s walk a different experience. According to the recent survey held by Modern Maturity (USA), this region has been declared as the world’s most spectacular trekking trails.
Pokhara "The city of lakes” would be either the starting point or ending point of your trek in the Annapurna region. Naturally enriched and picturesque town located at an altitude of 3000 feet is Pokhara, lying on the lap of great massive Himalayan ranges. One of the best tourist destinations, Pokhara is only 200km west of Kathmandu valley. It is within easy access by both air and road.
Tilicho, the highest lake in the world, has a strong mythical connotation. Forming a part of the main Annapurna treks, the Tilicho Lake Trekking follows some of the most interesting Annapurna routes leading towards Jomsom trek by crossing Mesokanto-La Pass.
As an alternative route you can step back and cross the Thorong-La Pass instead of Mesokanto-La Pass. You will then head towards Muktinath and Jomsom as parts of the Round Annapurna Trekking. We highly recommend you to use camping trek since it will give you a wild sense of adventure of Tilicho Lake Trekking.
