Tilicho Pass Trekking

Tilicho Pass TrekkingTilicho pass trekking is challenging trekkinng trail in Annapurna Region.Tilicho Lake is one of those places that have had next to mythic connotations. Many regard it as the highest lake in the world (4912m). 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 Jomosom side became a very off-limits military area. From the Manang side it was rarely if ever visited. The trekking path to Tilicho was "a figment of some ones fantasy" and the locals in Manang had little knowledge of the route too, and were often thought to be slightly unfriendly, as they were known for not being particularly keen on working as human beasts of burden for various expeditions that had passed. When asked to porter they had simply refused! Manang is no ordinary village. Its people are heavily involved in international trade, due to passport privileges granted in the past.Tilicho pass trekking route goes along the Marshangdi River and Gorge through the remote valley of Manang also known as the district behind the Mountains, to crest the arid, windswept northern flank of Annapurna at the Thorong-La. The route then passes through the Khanshar Village (The Last Village of Nepal). The trail goes through the must challenging pass "Moeso Kanta Pass" of Annapurna area to Jomson.
