You will cross the Kangla Pass on your way back and rejoin the Annapurna Circuit path in Nagwal. Walking slowly leads to Manang from Nagwal. The world's highest-altitude lake, Tilicho Lake, will be your destination after spending an additional day acclimatizing in Manang. You will spend the night at Shree Kharka en route to Tilicho Lake.

A tea house combines the functions of a restaurant, hotel, and public gathering place. The bedrooms are furnished with twin beds and not much else, such as little tables or chairs. Although blankets are frequently offered, it is advised that you bring your own sleeping bags. The majority of restrooms either have squatting toilets or more comfortable sitting toilets. Most lodges feature hot water for showers, however, utilizing hot showers costs extra.

    Annapurna Circuit Trek with Nar Phu and Tilicho Difficulty Level

    The Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho and Nar Phu is quite challenging. The strenuous level of difficulty of this journey is a result of the route's tremendous elevation. The area's highest pass, Thorung La, is situated along the hiking trail and rises to a height of 5416 meters. This part of the journey is so challenging that it is closed for most of the year due to the extreme cold and heavy snowfall. Additionally, when traveling, you always remain above 3000 meters. Some of the most challenging terrains, which are typically harsh, rocky, and steep, are traversed. Contrary to many other treks, this trek has an unalterable degree of difficulty. Although you have the option to forego some of the pathways, doing so would mean that you would lose out on the highlights of the experience. The only thing a trekker can do to prepare physically and mentally for the journey.

To prevent altitude sickness during Annapurna Circuit - Nar Phu - Tilicho Lake Trek, take into account the following advice:

    • Keep yourself hydrated when hiking and stay away from alcohol because it dehydrates you.
    • Maintain a healthy diet throughout the trip.

    • Don't hurry when hiking to a high altitude. You ought to walk carefully and slowly.
    • Before hiking at an elevation of more than 3,000 meters, acclimate appropriately.
    • If your body reveals any symptoms of altitude sickness, you must either stop immediately or lower some elevation.
    • Keeping yourself clean may also help you avoid altitude sickness.

      Annapurna with Nar Phu Valley and Tilicho Lake Trek in August

      In August, I successfully completed my Annapurna with Nar Phu Valley and Tilicho Lake Trek with the aid of Green Valley Nepal Treks. Our guide was fantastic, well-prepared, wonderfully helpful, and knowledgeable, and he accompanied me on my trek. He gave us a tour of Kathmandu after the hike and helped us with the rest of our travel arrangements in Nepal. He came up with some amazing recommendations for things to do and places to eat for us. On the hike, he offered us a glimpse of Nepal's mountain people. Very kind and a great guide for the trek! Strongly advised.

    • Yes, trekkers must have registered the following trekking permits:

      • Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP)
      • Trekker’s Information Management System (TIMS)
      • Nar Phu Valley Special (Restricted) Permit
    • According to your budget, available time, and degree of fitness, we are willing to modify this package. You may either plan a flight from Jomsom airport to Pokhara after crossing the tallest Thorung La pass, or you can book a full circuit through Poonhill, depending on your timetable. Green Valley Nepal Treks has a track record of planning client-specific treks that meet their needs.

    • Without a guide, solo trekkers are not allowed to traverse the Nar Phu Valley. It needs a minimum of two group members and a certified trekking guide. One of the regions of Nepal's vast Himalayas' restricted area is the Nar Phu Valley. As a result, you need to follow the trekking permit instructions. However, it is impossible to trek totally on your own if you don't want to hire a guide.

    • Of course not, you may only utilize in urban areas such as Pokhara and Kathmandu, not on the Trekking route. All you need while traveling outside of the city is cash, preferably in tiny denominations. Before you head to the highlands, kindly exchange your money for local Nepali rupees.

    • Hikers may get Wi-Fi at several guesthouses for a nominal fee. In lower hills, it could function properly, but in the mountains, the connection might not be reliable, making it difficult for hikers to use the internet anytime they need to.

    • You can drink water from a bottle, purified drinking water, or tap water. We advise you to purchase purified refill water from your tea house lodge. Depending on where you are, each refueling may only cost you a little fee. The price rises as you ascend in height.

    • There are no issues at all for vegetarians because lodges often provide vegetarian meals. Additionally, in order to prevent food poisoning, we constantly advise our clients to consume vegetarian meals. High altitude meals that are not vegetarian are unsafe for the stomach.

    • For two trekkers carrying around 25 kg of baggage, Green Valley Nepal Treks will offer one porter (maximum 12 kg for each trekker). Porters are those employees that not only carry your bags but also uplift your spirits. They could put out extra effort to get you to your goal because of your generosity and devotion.

    • The greatest height one can reach while trekking is at Thorong La Pass (5416m), which presents a significant challenge for thrill seekers.

    • The free storage is offered by the hotel in Kathmandu. Thus, you may leave all of your belongings that are not necessary for the walk at your hotel or in our office.
