One Review to “Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake Trek”

    • Jordyn G

    Did the Annapurna Circuit Trek in May 2018 with Himalayan Summit Treks and Expeditions and It was an amazing experience. It was our first experience with this company, we were very impressed. The manager of the company as well as the guide and the porter went out of their way to make us super comfortable and made this trip an unforgettable one. The walk was not a walk in the park, loads of uphill walking, but the weather was an amazing, no rain and no snow, and apart from being really cold at high altitude, we were very lucky with the beautiful weather. The views that you get off the snow-capped mountains and walking through the little villages were definitely a highlight for us.
