    Useful Info

    Best Season or Time to Visit Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake

    • Spring (March, April, and May)

    The Annapurna Circuit Trek including Tilicho Lake is best done in the spring. This is the busiest time of year for trekking in Nepal due to the clear sky and sunny days. Even while temperatures will often be warm, mornings and evenings at higher elevations may be cool. There is currently no rain and the sky is mostly clear. The amount of greenery is particularly abundant at this time of year. The national flower of Nepal, the rhododendron, thrives in lower elevations and is particularly gorgeous. Lower-elevation pine trees will be calming and fragrant, while other wildflowers give a range of hues.

    • Autumn (September, October, and November)

    The Annapurna Circuit Trek involving Tilicho Lake is at its best in the autumn. This is a very well-liked time of year to go hiking in the Annapurna area. Because of the great weather and breathtaking landscape, there will be more hikers on the trails, and lodging will be in high demand. Since festival season and the busiest hiking season coincide, the staff is overworked. Do keep this in mind when you plan your excursion. On the other hand, you may take in Pokhara's stunning scenery and the lively atmosphere along the trip.

    Food and Meal Available During Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake

    We recommend that you try some of the regional delicacies, like dal, Bhat, boiled potatoes with chili sauce, Sherpa stew, and curry with rice. The cuisine is of outstanding quality. These are the staple foods for Sherpa people, yet every resort also offers a wide selection of Western specialties. While on the Annapurna Circuit Trek combining Tilicho Lake, you will consume three meals.

    • Breakfast options include fried and scrambled eggs, toast, pancakes, Tibetan bread, muesli, porridge, tea, coffee, and chocolate.
    • Lunch and dinner menu items include soups (tomato, garlic, vegetable, mushrooms, etc.), veg fried rice, dal, bhat, curry with rice, noodles (mix fried, veg, egg, cheese), macaroni, spring rolls (veg, egg, cheese, mixed), mo:mo (dumpling), pizza (all varieties), fried potatoes (veg or cheese), chips, buff steak (water buffalo, occasionally yak), and lasagna.

    We strongly advise staying away from dairy, alcoholic beverages, caffeinated foods, and hot chocolate. At high altitudes, it is advised to consume liquids like green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, garlic soup (a necessity), and fresh vegetables.

    Accommodation Facilities on Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake

    In Pokhara and Kathmandu, you will stay in standard hotels. While on the Tilicho Lake and Annapurna Circuit Trek, you may choose from a choice of lodging options. Tourist-oriented lodges, guest homes, and teahouses exist. The lodges are nice for your initial step, but as you get to greater elevations, things start to change. There is a large dining area with a wood-burning stove in the tea house. Most of the time, hikers converse and eat while staying warm by the fire in the dining room. Each guesthouse has blankets available. The accommodations are rather basic. They often have two single beds, blankets, and an occasional table and chair. Long-drop traditional toilets, which are holes in the ground, are increasingly prevalent as you ascend the lodges; lower lodges have neat, western-style flush toilets. Keeping some toilet paper on hand at all times is the wisest course of action.

    Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake Difficulty Level

    The Annapurna Trek with Tilicho Lake 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, the Annapurna Circuit Tilicho Lake 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 is to get ready for the challenges of the Annapurna trekking with Tilicho.

    Travel Insurance for Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake

    You must have travel insurance for the Annapurna Circuit Trek linking Tilicho Lake since you will be trekking at a height of 3000 meters. Frighteningly expensive are medical emergencies and evacuations due to illness or injury. Therefore, we strongly advise purchasing travel insurance for everyone who books a trek with Green Valley Nepal Treks. We advise you to make a thorough decision when selecting coverage because certain insurers have certain limitations for dangerous travel. Before purchasing insurance, make sure your provider is prepared to cover all of the activities involved while on the trip and is aware of the Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake itinerary you intend to follow. You must have emergency helicopter rescue and medical expense coverage with your insurance if you want to go hiking or mountain climbing in the Himalayas. Since all payments for deposits are non-refundable, check your insurance coverage to make sure that trip cancellation is covered.

    Altitude Sickness and Remedies during Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake

    Air pressure and oxygen density decrease when hikers climb higher into the mountains relative to sea level. Starting at a lower elevation, the Annapurna Circuit trek plus Tilicho Lake gradually ascends to 5416 meters above sea level. While trekking over 3000 meters, trekkers may encounter typical altitude sickness symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, headaches, and loss of appetite, as well as weariness and insomnia. It is crucial to treat these symptoms. Hikers must quickly descend to a lower elevation to prevent more issues. Out of concern for being sent back and being unable to finish the journey, many people decide not to tell anybody. It unavoidably puts their lives in peril as a result. Stay out in the open and let your guide know as soon as you can. Acclimatization is necessary if you want to avoid altitude sickness symptoms. By acclimatizing, your body may more readily adjust to its environment. Consuming water, maintaining your own speed, and following your leader's directions all help you avoid the AMS. You should also refrain from drinking and smoking throughout your trip.

    Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake Packing List

    Without the right supplies and gear, you run into a lot of hazards when you go on the Annapurna Circuit Trek encompassing Tilicho Lake. It will make the trip very time-consuming and difficult, costing a lot of money. Trekkers must thus pack all of the necessary equipment and supplies. The correct gear will depend on the terrain, altitude, and duration of the walk. Winter equipment requirements are different from spring or autumn requirements. As a result, you must choose your tools and necessities with utmost care. Here are a few things we advise trekkers on the Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake to bring.

    FAQs
    • 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.

    • The majority of tea rooms do feature western-style flushing toilets, but further up you may discover squat toilets constructed of a porcelain basin on the floor or a few shakily placed boards over a hole in the ground that is always outside the room.

    • 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.

    • In the Annapurna area, hiking alone is dangerous. If you get lost or interpret the path incorrectly, there is no one to follow you the entire way. Hikers who are trekking alone face more dangers. As a result, be sure to get a qualified trek guide who can accompany you on the route.

    • 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.

    • Yes, a member of our team will greet you when you arrive at Tribhuwan International Airport. He will be carrying a placard of Green Valley Nepal Treks outside the airport terminal. After you arrive, a private car will take you to your hotel.

    • Yes, this trek is appropriate for novices, without a doubt. Walking the Circuit is a traditional way to round the massive mountain range that makes up the Annapurna range. Although there are some high hills, it is not tough, and there are breathtaking vistas all along the route. The most popular trekking location in Nepal among the other Circuit treks is the Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho.

    • Here are a few tips from our experienced guides to avoid altitude sickness;

      • Slow ascend with proper rest and acclimatization
      • Drink enough water to get hydrated
      • Consume enough balanced diet food
      • Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and tobacco during the trek
      • Get prepared physically and mentally for the trek
    • 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.

    • Yes, all guesthouses and lodges will have charging stations, however occasionally there may be load shedding issues, so it's best to have a power bank or extra batteries.
