The Annapurnas tour is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. With an incredible panoramic view, hikers enjoy it because it combines maximum pleasure for a short period of time. You will find magnificent views such as Gangapurna, Chulu, Pisang Peak, Lamjumg Himal as well as peaks rising above 7000 meters. You will discover the Gurung people who migrated from Tibet. This strong enriching culture brings its particularity to the region.
The trek will start with lush vegetation following the Marsyangdi river. A most remarkable panorama will open to you. You will be able to cross several suspension bridges. The amazing waterfalls will give way to a desert area of Mustang towards Murkinath and Jomson.
Located at a distance of 2 or 3 days from Manang, in the high places of the Annapurnas region you will be delighted by the great beauty of Lake Tilicho which nestles at 4920 m making it one of the highest lakes in the world. We will cross Khangasar in order to go to the Tilicho Peak Hotel where you will be able to have a comforting meal and spend the night. The next day we will trek for 3 hours to Tilicho Base Camp (4100m). The lower path is the safest but has some landslide areas. From there we will have to do a 3 hour trek to reach the lake. This is the perfect environment for snow leopards and you will be likely to see blue sheep as well as yaks.
