Key Facts & Information
- At the altitude and low-temperature that surrounds the lake, it is no surprise that no aquatic organism was recorded by the Nepali Department of Hydrology & Meteorology in 2003 when testing the lake.
- New lodges have been built between Manang district and the lake, so no camping is required for trekkers visiting it. The new lodges were built due to the fact that Tilicho Lake is the destination of one of the most popular side hikes of the Annapurna Circuit trek.
- It takes an additional 3 to 4 days in order to do a side hike to the lake and the final approach to the lake is done in a day hike from the lodge at Tilicho Base Camp.

- No tea houses or lodges are found between the Tilicho Base Camp lodge that is located east of the lake and the next village of Thini Gaon in the Kali Gandaki valley.
