Tilicho Lake With Annapurna Circuit Trekking Reviews

Tilicho Lake Trekking

I went on the 10 days Tilicho Lake Trek in mid-March. The Base Camp Hike arranged everything perfectly –

accommodations, transport from the airport, meals, etc. The service that they provided me was incredible.

My guide Som was great humor and Kindness. He took care of me perfectly during the whole trekking period. For the

Next trip to Langtang Trek in Nepal, I will again use Base Camp Hike.

Tilicho Lake

Completely amazing! I would recommend this to everyone to visit Tilicho Lake with Base Camp Hike. If you can manage 2 weeks’ time, please do Tilicho Lake Plus Thorang La Pass. It is getting more and more popular so go here before everybody else! We had an amazing trek, and it is tough but so worth it!
