    Tilicho Lake

    April 18 in Nepal

    Although the Tilicho lake is not the highest altitude lake in the world as the Nepalese claim it to be, at almost 5000m, it is quite high and for us it was really demanding to get there as we had never been on such a high level. Our first time above 5000m on the way up there, a great preparation for the Thorong La!
    Surrounded by white shimmering glaciers the big icy lake with the Tilicho peak (7134m) is a sheer beauty, so that we took a long rest by the lake, catching our breath, soaking in the stunning views and relaxing our muscles.
    Our muscles were indeed quite stiff, not only because one part was characterized by narrow steep hairpins winding up the mountain, but also because other parts were so-called ‘landslide areas’. As rocks of different sizes were flying down from above along the narrow trekking path which wasn’t always clear, the gaping abyss a step aside, we found this part very frightening and were glad that we didn’t wait until the wind had picked up even more.
    However, we survived with some adrenaline rushes and stayed another night in the Tilicho Base camp at an altitude of 4150m, recharging our batteries with some Yak cheese, yummy! The cheese is absolutely delicious and you can get it everywhere at these heights - because that’s where the cute, woolly Yaks live :)

    Tilicho Lake

    October 26, 2015 in Nepal

    Gestern haben wir uns auf den Weg zum Base-Camp vom Tilicho Lake gemacht, entlang einer Erdrutsch gefährdeten Strecke. Wir müssten zwar aufpassen wo wir hintreten, aber Spaß gemacht hat's trotzdem. Heute sind wir dann um 6 Uhr früh vom Base-Camp (4100m über n.N.) zum Tilicho Lake auf knapp 5000m gestartet. Das ist der höchste See der Welt und die Aussicht war grandios. Danach ging es wieder runter und noch 2h weiter. Morgen kommen wir dann den höchste Pass der Welt ein Stück näher.Read more

    Khangsar - Annapurna Day 6 (End)

    October 25, 2015 in Nepal

    (3700m) 24 km travelled. After descending from Milarepa's Cave and the glacier at Annapurna III (which sits at the base of the peak around 4300m), my cross-continental comrades and I took a quick lunch at the New Yak Hotel in Bhraka village then departed for Khansar via Manang. Thanks to our unwillingness to grab our maps from our packs, what could have been a simple trek on well-travelled foot and bike paths quickly became a challenging trek around the bases of eroded Himalayan peaks. Nonetheless, the wrong-Northwest turn away from Manang turned out to be a strenuous albeit significant shortcut to our target destination. Tomorrow we will continue onward toward Tilicho Lake (4900m+).Read more

    Tilicho Lake Base Camp - Day 7 (End)

    October 26, 2015 in Nepal

    (4100m) 9 km travelled. A half day of being on the move from Khangsar came to an end at the New Tilicho Lake Base Camp, a four hour, 800 meter climb shy of Tilicho Lake (Tal). Tomorrow will be a treat, as the 800 meter climb will be capped off by an afternoon at one of the highest mountain lakes in the world.

    My view while writing this entry is seen in the first picture.

    Tilicho Lake - Annapurna Day 8

    October 27, 2015 in Nepal

    (4920m) Tilicho Lake is among the most elevated lakes on the planet, and as judged by the Nepali Gov it IS the largest/highest in the world. Regardless, it was as beautiful as it was cold.
