Tilicho Lake Trekking

8th November, 2022

I completed a three week trekking programmed with Skyline Treks in the Himalayas. The programmed was professionally organised, I was met at the airport and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. A good solid trekking company (Skyline Treks) for a good solid experience.

Made Tilicho Lake trek batch in March 2007

8th November, 2022

If there is a dependable trek organizer and trek guide (Mr. Madav Pandey and Gombu Sherpa)   then every Himalayan trek appear easy, which is what I found in both of them. 

They were just too good in handling the team. The briefings that given by our trek guide on the day first itself set the tone for the entire trek. 

He was very helpful and shared his trekking experiences throughout the trek that help us to detect altitude sickness signs and awareness to avoid. 

Overall I had a great time on the Nepal trek and discovered so many things, most importantly just stunned by Tilicho Lake and its surroundings. Skyline treks deserve high recommendation.

Tilicho Lake trek

8th November, 2022

We have been to Annapurna Circuit trek via Tilicho Lake through Skyline treks. Would like to say, the whole trek was prearranged really great. 

Throughout the trek I was well taken care by my trek guide Dheeraz C, who is amazingly cordial in every aspect. 

The beauty and diversity of the area’s landscape make the trek perfect destination for me like beginner trekkers. 

Thanks Skyline Treks and team, you guys are the key reason so that I could store plethora of memories and unforgettable trekking experiences. 

It’s a magical journey in Nepal Himalayas that I couldn’t forget lifelong. So why I should not recommend Skyline Treks!
