The highest lake in the world, Tilicho Lake is 4,949 m high and collects the glacial melt of Annapurna and Thorang Peak in the Manang district of Nepal. Tilicho Lake also provides the site of the highest altitude scuba dives. The first Russian diving team conducted a scuba dive in the Tilicho Lake in 2000 A.D.
Planning to trek to Tilicho Lake starts from Besisahar place which connects Marshyangdi River with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. Trek takes tourists to the village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups that offer spectacular and majestic views of the white Himalayas. From Tilicho Lake tourists also cross the challenging pass of Moesokanta La Pass to Jomsom instead of traveling to Thorung La Pass.
