Regarded as one of the highest lakes in the world, it rests in the stunning location in the Annapurna region at an altitude of 5,000 meters. It was also the site of one of the highest ever altitude scuba dives in the year 2000. Tilicho Lake collects the glacial melt of the entire northern slopes of Annapurna and Thorung.

From our camp by the shores of the lake, we climb up to the Mesokonto La where we are rewarded with the first views of the Kali Gandaki Valley.
