See more se Camp. The 3.9 km long, 1.6 km broad, 4.8 sq km covered area, the volume of 155 x 106 liter approx and 85 m deep lake with fresh water, has its water source mainly from Tilicho Glacier of Tilicho Peak (7135 m), Mesokanto and Idam-phara peaks situated at the left, front and right. Tilicho Glacier is also one of the sources of Marsyangdy River which flows almost all throughout the route of Annapurna Circuit Route.
