Overview

One of the most thrilling activities that one can look forward to during their journey is ‘dancing waterfalls’ trekking. Nepal is the second richest country in water resources and it will be a great opportunity to spend your holidays on a trek like this. Waterfall trekking follows the route of the famous Thorung La pass trek which is also known as the ‘Annapurna Circuit Trek‘. Moreover, you will enjoy hot springs at Tatopani and Chame. This path is almost off-the-beaten-path until Manang but there are classic roads further ahead…

On the way to Himalayan trekking in Nepal, you will pass through pristine Lakes and elegant snowcapped mountains. We have gone through various Lakes like Rara in Jumla, Phoksundo in Dolpa, and Tilicho in the Annapurna region. Likewise, Tilicho Lake is the highest glacier in Nepal. Annapurna trek is one of the most loved trekking trails of the world after it was opened for trekkers in 1980. The beauty of these waterfalls is breathtaking, all the hard work while trekking becomes worthwhile once you reach these dancing waterfalls in different places. Another most exciting sight trip as a day climbing starts from either Manang or Braga. We highly recommended you follow the path from Braga as it is less energy while you enjoy true waterfalls trekking. The path takes you to the north hill where white Chortens welcome you at the top. The main attraction of this place is Ice Lake where the elevation is 4600m and the main spot is of passionate emotions for all trekkers.

Ice Lake trip offers you shiny mountains such as the Manaslu Mountains, Annapurna II, Annapurna IV, Annapurna III, Tilicho, and Pisang peak. It gives spiritual peace that the world needs while you visit Ice Lake. Thus, you can enjoy this lovely route with waterfalls, Tilicho Lake, and hot springs, too. Tilicho Lake is situated at an altitude of 4,919m and is regarded as the highest physically place lake in Nepal.
