You will drive from Kathmandu to Chame (10-12 hours). Chame is located at the altitude of 2710 m. We should be very careful while going to high altitude. Gaining high altitude quickly cause High Altitude Sickness. Above 2500 m (from mean sea level), it is recommended not to go above 300 m per day. As level of oxygen gets thinner in high altitude, we must give time to adjust our body to adapt in higher altitude. Our body produce more hemoglobin to absorb oxygen required by our body. So, that we do not have to breathe faster. Therefore, we actually recommend at least 6 nights/7 days’ package to Tilicho Lake. Upon arrival in Besisahar, one-hour lunch break will be given and team will be departed to Chame. Chame is district headquarter of Manang district.
