    Lifetime experience of Tilicho Lake Trek:


    I and my some mates went for Tilicho Lake Trek last month. We were a total of 8 people in total. We booked the trips via our friend, with the trekking company named Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition (NTA). The company arranged everything for us, i.e. the facilities like lodges/hotels, food, trekking gears and many more. We were assigned a guide named Shiva. He was a good person. He detailed us about the mountains, lakes, cascades, hot water springs, temples, gompas, and monasteries. We clicked a lot of photos in the place. One night we lived in a local house. The owners let us stay in the place and enjoy the moment. This trek was one of the lifetime opportunity to get lost in such an amazing Himalayan territory. Thank you Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition (NTA) for organizing and managing such a splendid trip in Nepal.
