Tilicho: Tilicho Lake is a lake located in the Manang district of Nepal, 55 kilometers as the crow flies from the city of Pokhara. It is situated at an altitude of 4,919 meters (16,138 ft.) in the Annapurna range of the Himalayas and is sometimes called the highest lake for its size in the world, even though there are lakes at higher altitude even in Nepal, and larger, higher lakes in Tibet. According to the Nepali Department of Hydrology & Meteorology (2003), no aquatic organism has been recorded in the lake. Tilicho Lake is the destination of one of the most popular side hikes of the Annapurna Circuit trek. The hike takes additional 3-4 days. No camping is required, as new lodges have been built between Manang and the lake. The final approach to the lake is done in a day hike from the lodge at Tilicho Base Camp.
Manang: Manang is a town in the Manang District of Nepal. According to the preliminary result of the 2011 Nepal Census it has a population of 6,527 peoples. Its population density is 3 persons/km. It is situated in the broad valley of the Marshyangdi River to the north of the Annapurna mountain. Most groups trekking around the Annapurna range will take resting days in Manang to acclimatize to the high altitude, before taking on Throng La pass.

After crossing the the Khangsar Khola on the bridge below Khangsar and ascend the slope to the village, a village still in the old Tibetan style and which is also known as last village of Nepal. Continue from Khangsar on a large path. Pass a Gompa (monastery). The route ahead goes on a recently constructed path up towards a high ridge. At one point is an intersection. One path maintains the altitude, traversing the slopes towards a place where the valley is narrow; the other continues to ascend towards the line of the ridge. The former is the old path, and is much more difficult as it goes on really steep screed; the latter is the new path that goes a completely different way. Continue along the new path, reach a high crest, and descend on switch backs carved out through the screed slopes to a side valley of the main valley. At its bottom is a brook. On the other side of it is a building known as Tilicho Base Camp at elevation of 4200 meters.
