Annapurna Trek/Tilicho Lake In December?

Hi All,

I am brand new to this group and I am hoping I can get some advice. I am planning an independent trip from 15 Dec. 2019 to 5 Jan. 2019 that I am hoping will go from Besisahar to Jomsom and include Tilicho Lake. Would this be doable in winter? Will teahouses be open? Will the Tilicho base camp be open?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Mike

Just to clarify – Besisahar is my starting point and Jomsom is my end point, but I plan on sticking to main trail and head to Tilicho from Manang, stay at the base camp and then backtrack toward Manang and then up to the Thurong La pass. My main concern is the lack of open tea houses during winter – especially Tilicho base camp.

 

Hi Mike, spotted your planned trip for end of 2019. I hope it all goes ahead for you. However if by chance your plans change and you have to postpone your trip, I’m planning the same trip for late Feb-Mid Mar 2021, 14 months later.
Check out my trip on the forum and if your interested, please get in touch. Looking to build a group of 4-8 people for a once in a lifetime trek to The Himalayas.

Sorry Gareth, my dates are fixed and cannot be changed. Best of luck.

 

Hei Mike, are your dates completely fixed? Im planning to do the circuit between the 21st of December 2018 and 8th Jannuary 2019.

Btw, in accord to many posts on the lonely planet, there should be teahouses open during that period. Though not necessarily the Tilicho base camp. If I understood right, if there is enough quorum, the locals open it =D

This lonely planet forum thread as a lot of info about trekking in Nepal at that time:
