Tilicho Lake is the destination of one of the most popular side hikes of the Annapurna Circuit trek. The hike takes additional 3–4 days. No camping is required, as new lodges have been built between Manang and the lake. The final approach to the lake is done in a day hike from the lodge at Tilicho Base Camp.

Day 01:Kathmandu to Besisahar

Set off by Tourist bus towards Besisahar(7hr), gateway to the Annapurna Circuit. A long walk through Besisahar bazaar leads downstream, followed then by an ascent up a series of rocky steps. There are several more ascents and descents as the trail makes its way through sub-tropical forests and across the rice terraces of Sera. Further on, across a saggy suspension bridge over the Khudi Khola is Bhulbule. Meal: Dinner Access: Surface transport

Day 02:Besisahar to Manang (3540m)

After breakfast you will drive to Chame about 6 to 7 hours. The road is Gravel. Then drive to Manang takes about 4 hours. You will drive past beautiful landscapes and Mountains. Enter the upper Manang region, where the rainfall is much lower. You will notice much contrast with the landscape and vegetation; the cold arid climate creates a much harsher environment. This area is a fascinating mix of barren cliffs and exotic rock formations in contrast to the snow covered Himalayan peaks. You have entered another world; Manang Village is set at 3500m.

Day 03: Manang to Tilicho Base Camp (4200m)

After acclimatized at Manang we continue our adventure for Tilicho Lake, from Manang one heads out through the western gates and then one follows the path down to the river. After crossing the the Khangsar Khola on the bridge below Khangsar and ascend the slope to the village, a village still in the old Tibetan style and which is also known as last village of Nepal.

Continue from Khangsar on a large path. Pass a Gompa (monastery). The route ahead goes on a recently constructed path up towards a high ridge. At one point is an intersection. One path maintains the altitude, traversing the slopes towards a place where the valley is narrow; the other continues to ascend towards the line of the ridge. The former is the old path, and is much more difficult as it goes on really steep screed; the latter is the new path that goes a completely different way. Continue along the new path, reach a high crest, and descend on switch backs carved out through the screed slopes to a side valley of the main valley. At its bottom is a brook. On the other side of it is a building known as Tilicho Base Camp at elevation of 4200 meters.
