Want to feel the ultimate adrenaline rush to your veins and an adventure of a lifetime?
This Tilicho Lake and Mesokanto La Pass trek in Nepal is rated as the most adventurous and rewarding trek by our past adventurers. This trek of the Annapurna region is only open for the experienced trekkers, as the Tilicho lake itself rests at 4900m as world’s highest lake.
We begin the trek to Mesokanto La Pass from Besisahar, and follow through the Marshyangdi River, with picture-perfect views of Manaslu (8163m) and Peak 29 to the east. Starting from a low altitude, it offers you with plenty of great opportunities to walk through terraced farmlands, neatly placed villages belonging to the lower kingdom of the Annapurna Conservation area. Our stop at a village of Manang spices up the trek with the plenty of excursions in our plate. While on the way we also get to enjoy the beauty of artistic monasteries, Milerepa Cave and stare at the Gangapurna Lake, Ice Lake and Khangsar village.
We trek towards the magical Tilicho Lake from the Khangsar village only. The route to this trek snows all year-long, so it requires the special arrangement before attempting the same. The trek ends at Jomsom or if you may want us at Skyline can customize the trek and extend the route via Kali Gandaki ‘World’s deepest gorge’ between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges to ‘Tatopani’ and ‘Ghorepani’.

We have travelled many places around the world and prefer to use local companies. After some Internet searching I came across Skyline treks. They put together a great itinerary for us. We travelled for 5 weeks in Nepal including treking to Annapurna base camp, rafting the Seti river, Chitwan National Park, and most of the local attractions around Kathmandu, Pokhara, and everywhere in between. We had a fantastic experience.
We have travelled as a private group with local companies and with international travel companies before. I have to say I much prefer local companies and Skyline treks in no exception. What you gain by traveling with local groups is getting to know people including your guides, drivers, and many people along the way. There is a much greater interaction with local people that will enrich your trip. Having the same driver and guides, porters etc over many weeks allows good friendships to be formed and for a much more personal trip. Raj, the owner of the company took great care of us. When the going got tough on the abc trek with ice and snow, there was always a helping hand. We always had hot drinks shortly after arriving at the tea houses. Go and have a great adventure in Nepal with skyline treks if you haven't been or try them if you are returning. We would love to return in the future to see more of this charming country and friendly people.
