Tilicho Expedition (7,134m)

Tilico Peak is located in the Manang District and sits on a mountain range between Khangsar Kang (7558m) And Nilgiri North (70661m). From the peak, you will be rewarded with views over Tilicho Lake (4920m) located at the base of the peak and is the highest lake in the world with its aqua-blue water. From the summit, you see the huge massifs of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, as well as down to the deepest gorge in the world, Kali Gandaki Gorge.

Tilicho peak (7134m/23,406ft) is another magnificent mountain worth crossing off your wish list. Destination Holiday Trek & Expedition, with more than 20 years of trekking and climbing experience will safely take you to the summit.

Our climbing base is situate on the shore of Tilicho Lake with Camp 1 at (5800m) located on a shelf just below the northwest shoulder amidst a rocky and icy terrain. Camp II (6100m) is situated on the shoulder and is reached by climbing a 50-degree slope and a 500 meter stretch of snow. Camp II is protected from extreme weather by the shoulder, making it a safe place to camp. The ascent to Base camp II and on to the peak requires fixed ropes.

On the trail from its starting point at Dharapani, on theAnnapurna trekking route, you will pass through many Tibetan Buddhist villages with their rich heritage and displays of religious symbols, such as prayer flags, chortens (engraved stones)and monasteries.

The scenery along the trail is absolutely stunning. From Dharapani will go via Chame (2670m), Pisang (3100m), and manag (3440m) villages. We will rest and take time out to acclimatize at mananga. It is highly recommended that during the acclimatization period you stay active. After a day ere we more on to Khnagsar (3734m), Besi Khola (3955m), and finally, arrive at Tilicho Peak base camp (4150m) situated besaide Tilicho Lake-our source of water. You will have to boil or sterilixe the water before drinking it. At Base camp, we have plenty of time to rehearse and prepare for our climb to the summit.
