After the Road Construction Complete circuit trek is less popular. A side trek route to Tilicho Lake wasn't focused because of infrastructure and Rugged Trails Nepal use to organize camping Trek to Tilicho lake. Very few people have visited even doing Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Trekking in Nepal above 5000 M is Strenuous but not technical, Just need to be mentally and physically in a good shape. Tilicho Lake Trek with Thorong La pass trek starts from Kathmandu after preparing all necessary trekking permits, and gears. During the Trek Rugged Trails, the Nepal Mountain guide will lead the trail and there will be a porter to carry your luggage. Foods can choose from the menu vegetarian, Vegan or Non-Vegetarian meals. Drinking water can be purchased by the bottle or filtered water. 

We suggest all our trekkers not to buy mineral water unless you don't have other options. Nepal doesn't have proper recycling systems so most of the plastics will be burned behind our back or dumped in this beautiful mother earth. We request all our friends to buy water purifying pills for drinking water.
