FAQs

  • Is it hard to do Tilicho Lake Trek?

    No, it is not that hard to do the trek if we plan properly. Expert planning in designing the itinerary is needed for the successful trekking. Our travel planners have worked very hard during pandemic to shorten the circuit trek. The company invested in private research trek to knit the short itinerary. The itinerary consists of Manang Acclimatization too. Therefore, it avoids the risk of altitude sickness also. Don't worry and follow the instructions of the trekking guide. You will be able to complete the trek in stipulated time.

  • What should i do before trekking? My Physical fitness status?

    Tilicho Lake Trek is relatively easy trekking route except the day of crossing the Thorong La Pass. However, you need to be physically fit. We are challenging to complete the trek in just 8 days. Therefore, one month before the trek, do some gentle walking exercises. Cardio exercises are helpful. For example, do some cycling and long hours of walking/jogging.

  • What are things do i need to do besides preparing the physical fitness level? Eating Habits?

    Please avoid eating greasy food one month prior to the trekking. Avoid drinking beer too. If you really need to drink alcohol, limit to one - two pint. Make sure to do extra jogging or cardio exercises.

  • Do i need Travel Insurance for the Trek?

    Yes, Insurance is highly needed. In fact, it is mandatory. We are directly traveling to Chame which is 2600 m from Kathmandu 1300 m. Therefore, slight difficulty might appear. But the altitude effects start to appear only after 3000 m. Our travel planners prepared this itinerary in such a way that trekkers can avoid the altitude sickness risk. There is road network up to Manang but we will not travel to Manang on vehicle rather we trek after staying in Chame. However, you need to take the insurance as our trekking reaches as high as 5416 m. It is better as well as mandatory to do take the insurance.

  • What is the difficulty level of the trek?

    The trekking is moderate to easy. The only difficulty is while we trek from Phedi to Muktinath crossing the Thorong La pass. We have to cover 1000 m on this day. However, normal route is Yak Kharka to High Camp which make it easier to cross the pass. However, the guide will assess your condition. He/She will decide whether to push for High camp or Phedi. Besides this day, almost every day is easy walking trail.

  • How many hours of walking in a day?

    We will have to walk for about 6-7 hours in a day. Thorong La Pass Crossing day requires more hours which is about 7 - 8 hours.
