Nepal is bestowed with many prodigious trekking destinations. The majestic Himalayan ranges, mountain landscape, sub-tropical vegetation, and the unique culture of Nepal captivate tourists all around the world.
Among the different tourist destinations of Nepal, the Annapurna region is the most popular one.
Youin’s 18 day Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake Trek makes you feel the presence of heavenly nature. The circular route of the trek covers almost all popular destinations of the Annapurna region.
Annapurna Circuit trek is a classic journey in the Annapurna region. And when merged with the Tilicho Lake Trek, the fun doubles. The Circuit Trek takes you through the high altitude range.
During the trek, you need to pass over 5,000 meters high passes. The journey begins as you pass through the paddy fields of the lowland and ends as you explore the deserted area of Manang.
Tilicho Lake, at 4,919m, is the highest altitude lake in the world. You walk through the lush and stunning subtropical countryside suited right over the moraine. You pass through the alpine forests, multiple high passes and along the arid cliffs.
The trek can be challenging but equally thrilling and adventurous.
Tilicho, Muktinath, Nilgiri, and Khangsar, are some mountain peaks visible around the lake. Their image reflected in the cold and clear turquoise waters look beautiful.
And the views of the Annapurna ranges accompany the trekkers throughout the whole trek. The thick subtropical vegetation of Rhododendron, Oak and Pine will make you feel lost in the wild.
Occasional encounters with the rear Himalayan wildlife will add to the fun. The magnificent mountain peaks always stand tall and solid in the front.
The drastic change in the landscape and climate will make the trek adventurous.
As you stay in the local tea house, you can live the life of mountain people. Learning about their unique culture and lifestyle is one of the best experiences of the trek.
Getting to explore so many differences in a single journey is quite an opportunity.
