Our ambassador Luís Mirpuri reached the highest lake of its size in the world, the Tilicho Lake, in the heart of Nepal, at 5,015 meters of altitude in the most preserved conservation area of Annapurna.
“Very proud to be performing this expedition to support Mirpuri Foundation on raising public awareness towards global warming and climate change, aiming to promote initiatives that hold the power to make a difference in the future of our planet.”
Tilicho is one of the most beautiful lakes on earth, with an equally dangerous trekking trail. However, despite challenging, the path unveils spectacular views of the Himalayas as well as the isolated communities inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups.
Surrounded by the magnificent scenery of mountains such as Khangsar Himal or the Tilicho Himal, this natural treasure results from the accumulation of the glacial melt of the entire northern slope of Annapurna and the Thorung Peak. Its breathtaking turquoise waters, the serene atmosphere and the impressive wildlife make this a fascinating destination for trekkers from all over the world.
The Mirpuri Foundation believes Wildlife Conservation needs to be a global joint effort to succeed and raising awareness is the first step of the way.
