Tilicho Lake is one of the highest lakes in the world. It is 4,949 m high in the Annapurna range of the Himalayas in Nepal. Another source lists Lake Tilicho as being 4,919 meters high (16,138 feet). It was for long almost totally closed save for a few climbers and expeditions, and since 1974, when Nixon changed the China policy, part of the area above Thini on the Jomsom side became a totally off-limits military area. From the Manang side, it was rarely if ever visited. It’s one of none tourist Trekking area of Nepal, which is normal to hard trekking with different passes. It lays also Annapurna region. But it is very exciting and the challenging Trekking. One can pass the Mesokanta La via Tilicho. So for it, it’s called “Annapurna Hard way trekking”.
