Acclimatization or rest day in Tilicho trek:

As you know, the higher the altitude, the less oxygen in the air. Too fast a climb can cause race disease, which, in turn, can lead to death. Crossing several passes on the route requires acclimatization. At some points on the route, the oxygen content is 50% of the oxygen content in the air we are used to. The body takes many days to adapt to these conditions, and for safety reasons, acclimatization is essential. Our route is designed in such a way as to minimize the risk of altitude sickness: the climb is smooth.

Travel Responsibly:

Almost Nepal Trekking routes of Himalayan regions such as Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang are open to independent visits. However, during each of our travels, we do our best to minimize our impact on the surrounding nature and the local population. Before starting the route, Mission Himalaya Trek guide will explain in detail to you what can and cannot be done during your trip.

Meals and accommodation:

During the trekking, we organize meals in loggias and restaurants. You can order your choice of Nepalese, Indian, Western, or Tibetan cuisine. Food during trekking is included in the tour price we mentioned in the itinerary. If can eat tasty and varied, food.

If your needs are more modest and the diet doesn't scare you, you can choose any meal from the menu of the tea house we stay at. All the groups, we provide accommodation in Kathmandu in a 3-star category hotel, this is a new hotel, Thamel Park. On trekking, we provide you with accommodation in lodges and guesthouses.

Of course, we will do everything in our power to provide you with the most comfortable accommodation, but please note that in mountainous areas, accommodation is usually very simple, and there are no high-class hotels. Don't forget to bring sleeping bags and warm clothing for trekking.

Best time for Tilicho Lake Trekking:

Spring and Autumn seasons being the best seasons for Tilicho Lake Trekking. At this time you will be enchanted with a clear sky, a beautiful scene. Nature will please shut your battery down by forcing you to capture lots of pictures. However, you can join Tilicho Lake trekking at any time of the year with Mission Himalaya.

High elevation emergency Insurance:

High altitude trekking risky than normal trekking in the city. So normally we do not take responsibility for your insurance but at the time of your poor health condition, we will advise the good suggestion. It is up to you to be insured or not.

However, we draw your attention to the fact that you will be traveling in a remote area with no infrastructure, and we strongly recommend that you have medical insurance, which should also cover emergency evacuation.

We are not insurance agents, and we do not sell insurance, nevertheless, we can advise you on one of the reliable companies, or purchase insurance for you, but for an additional fee.

Required experience and health:

Annapurna circuit with Tilicho lake trek route will require you to cross every day within 6-9 hours and pass one rather difficult high pass. Hiking up to 15 kilometers a day in the highlands is the main activity of our trip, and you should be ready for it.

We recommend that you start preparing for your trip three months in advance. It is very good if you already have experience in the mountains. Other prerequisites for the success of the expedition are willpower, good health, and tolerance for the people around you.

Once again, please note that in the absence of insurance, all medical care and evacuation costs are borne by you. In addition, before the trip, it would be correct to consult a doctor about health.
