Day 8: Trek Khangsar Village to Tilicho Base Camp (4200meters) for 5 hours

Trek begins on a new trail which takes an entirely different route, as a result, you will ascend to a high crest, and then descends via uneven slopes on switchbacks to a side valley of the central valley, and a creek runs through it. Hence on the other side, at an elevation of 4200 meters, is a settlement known as Tilicho Base Camp.

16 days Tilicho and Thorangla Pass Trek

Early in the morning, we will begin our climbing. You have to drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods. It takes 3-4 hours to walk from Base Camp to Tilicho Lake. Tilicho Lake, the world’s highest Lake, is freezing in the morning. We will return the same way to Base Camp after spending some time around Tilicho Lake because there are no accommodations in the Tilicho Lake area.

Day 10: Trek Tilicho Base Camp to Yak Kharka (4000 meters) 5/6 hours

While returning from Base Camp, you have to maintain high altitude sickness and then take a route 400 meters before  Khangsar town, which goes to the old Khangsar town. You will reach Gumsang, and After crossing the old log bridge in the river, you will reach Yak kharka. Yak Kharka’s meaning in English is Yak’s residence. Overnight tea houses are offered here.

Day 11 : Trek Yak Kharka to Thorong Phedi (4,450m) – 5 hrs

After a two-hour ascent, the trail drops to 4,310m, where it crosses the river. We then go to 4,450m Thorong Phedi, where decent guesthouses have recently been built. We can also reach High Camp as an option. The availability of tea houses is a factor, and the guide will decide the day before.

Day 12 : Trek Thorong Phedi to Muktinath (3,800m) passing Thorang-La pass (5,416m) 

Tilicho and Thorangla Pass Trek

Today’s walk begins at 4 a.m., to reach the pass by 9 a.m. It is to avoid high wind after midday, which could significantly impact the journey, especially at the Thorung La Pass (5,416m). We climb sharply on a well-defined path that is simple to follow. However, due to the altitude and snow, specific issues may develop. The four-hour journey up to the pass marked with chortens and prayer flags will be rewarded with breathtaking views from the top. Another four hours of travelling will get us to Muktinath, the sacred town. Here for the night.

Day 13: Trek down to Jomsom village via Kagbeni visit (2700m) 5 hours

Muktinath is a sacred site for both Hindus and Buddhists. In the morning, you can visit a holy temple, holy bathing 108 taps, sacred pools, a monastery, and giant statues of Padmasambhava. After this, we will spend most of the way down to Jomsom along the road. You can also take a Jeep ride from Muktinath to Jomsom. Visiting Kagbeni and Jharkot villages along the way is worthwhile, and walking down is more enjoyable than driving back.

Day 14: Fly Jomsom to Pokhara

It is a very early flight. You can either have an early breakfast in Jomsom or leave for Pokhara too. The flights in Jomsom are very unpredictable due to the weather. The weather always has an impact on aviation during the flight to Jomsom. Once you get on the plane in 15 minutes, a small plane carrying a maximum of 17 people will return you to Pokhara. A memorial visit in Pokhara begins after settling into the hotel and having enough time to rest. Boating at Fewa Lake, visiting the International Mountain Museum, driving or hiking to the World Peace Stupa, visiting David Fall, and visiting the Gupteswor Caves are things to do. You can finish all of these locations or do some rest.

In addition, the distance between Pokhara and Kathmandu is 200 kilometres. Therefore, it takes 7 hours to travel by tourist bus or private automobile. It would be best to relax for half a day in Pokhara before flying to Kathmandu in the afternoon. You might enjoy this route if you enjoy long adventure trekking. Tripura Travelcations offers you supper in a traditional Nepali cultural restaurant in Kathmandu in the evening.

My experience doing the Annapurna circuit

I had a great experience doing the Annapurna circuit. The circuit is a little touristy, but the scenery is breathtaking, and it is much less crowded in the off season; the weather is still pleasant in May. I went on the tour with a fantastic company about which I'd like to write. Tripura Travelcations is extremely professional and genuinely cares about its clients. They can provide almost anything, and their costs are really fair, especially when compared to other trekking companies. Everyone I met was extremely nice and welcoming, and I always felt at ease. I did the Annapurna circuit with one guide and had a fantastic time, so I can only provide a good recommendation from my perspective.

Highly recommend every traveller

I spent a few weeks with Suranjan (Shoko) in Nepal. Shoko travelled with me in the Kathmandu Valley and Annnapurna region itself. Thanks to him, I drank the most delicious lassie in town and came to many places, reached in the mountain so easily I would not have reached on my own. Highly recommend every traveller to travel with him because he have knowledge and provide high security.

Amazing experience

I usually plan and book our holidays myself and was a little cautious but thought I'd give booking with Tripura Travelcations a go. Booking with them was easy and trouble free. My consultant and other staff were very helpful and friendly. Quick response and emails received prior to our trip were very helpful, ensuring we had everything in order before our departure. When planning our next trip I will certainly look at what is available and I would have no hesitation in recommending Tripura to family or friends.
