Located at the Manang district and a part of Annapurna Range in Himalayas of Nepal, at the height of 4949 M, lays the highest lake in the world – Tilicho. It is the destination of one of the most popular side hikes of the Annapurna Circuit trek. The hike takes additional 3–4 days. No camping is required, as new lodges have been built between Manang and the lake. The final approach to the lake is done in a day hike from the lodge at Tilicho Base Camp.

But the glorious skyline shows off silver, gray and white mountains that glitters on a lovely weather day and the diverse ethnic communities we meet up on the way give us some sort of idea of the world we know and the world we are not familiar with but want so much to learn off makes fade away all the hardship made on the trip.

On the way to Tilicho Lake, you get placid views of waterfalls, and experience hiking across airy suspension bridges. But this route is a pretty tough trail. You have to walk at alpine altitudes and you have to cross the Thorung La pass at (5, 416m).
