                                Mesmerizing Tilicho Lake Trek in Nepal

                                Nepal is a wonderful nation. Practically, all piece of Nepal is delightful, but lakes and glaciers view are the most amazing ones. This time I went for Tilicho Lake Trek in Nepal. I appreciated the trek a ton. I saw numerous excellent wild creatures and winged animals, tropical timberlands with blooming blossoms and herbs, mountains and some more amid the trail. The way towards the lake was somewhat elusive yet generally speaking it was entertaining. I additionally demanded my plan for arranging a plunge to Tilicho Lake. It was so troublesome to do so as the lake’s water was so cold and was like freezing. I will experience the dive to this beautiful lake at least once in a life. For this, I will return to Nepal with no doubt. Yet at the same time, other natural experiences were generally excellent. I delighted in it a great deal. Much obliged to you Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition for organizing such an excellent trekking journey for me. Highly recommended to all the adventure lovers.
