This beautiful Trekking Route goes along the Marshangdi River through the remote valley of Manang (also known as the district behind the Mountains). And passing through many beautiful villages and old and historical monasteries.

Thorong la Pass Trek

From the Manang, our journey goes through Khangsar. And follow the Khangsar Khola to reach the Beautiful Tilicho Lake. We will enjoy a perfect view of the lake and Tilicho Peak at 7,134m. After that, descends to Siri Kharka and then follows the different trekking trails to reach the Yak Kharka 4,050m.

Then descend to Muktinath and Jomsom then fly out to Pokhara.

Difficulty Level

The Tilicho Lake with Thorong la Pass Trek is moderate to challenging. The trail is rough and narrow and some parts are slippery and icy. In some places, there is rock falling so we need to care to walk on the way to Tilicho. After the Thorongla Pass, the trail is steep downhill and it will be slippery too. So trekking during winter and monsoon seasons is more challenging.

But it is possible to trek the Annapurna circuit during the monsoon season too.  Yes, it is also challenging due to the high altitude. The Tilicho Lake Altitude is 4,925 meters and the Thorong la Pass is 5,416m. Of course, you have to bring warm clothes and good shoes for this trek. You have to be physically and mentally fit for this trek.

Best Time to Tilicho Lake + Thorong La Pass

The best time to visit the Tilicho Lake and Annapurna Circuit Trek is the Autumn season (September to November) and Spring Season (March to May). These months are best for trekking and hiking. Monsoon and winter months are not very well for the Tilicho Lake trek due to the mud and ice. But it is possible to do the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
