TILICHO PEAK EXPEDITION

Tilicho peak (7134m/23,406ft) is another magnificent mountain worth crossing off your wish list. Sherpa Expedition & Trekking, with more than 40 years of trekking and climbing experience will see you safely to the summit. You are in safe hands!                                                                                 
Tilicho Peak is located in the Manang District and sits on a mountain range between Khangsar Kang (7558m) and Nilgiri North (7061m). 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 can see the huge massifs of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, as well as down to the deepest gorge in the world, Kali Gandaki Gorge. 

Our climbing base is situated on the shore of Tilicho Lake with Camp 1 at (5800m/19,029ft.) located on a shelf just below the northwest shoulder amidst a rocky and icy terrain.  Camp II (6100m/20,013ft) 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.

You will be justly rewarded as you reach the summit of Tilicho Peak with some jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan Ranges, which include Lamjung Himal (6932m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna II (7939m), Gangapurna (7454m) and many other startling white peaks. 

On the trail from its starting point at Dharapani, on the Annapurna 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 (Gompas).  The scenery along the trail is absolutely stunning. From Dharapani we will go via Chame (2670m), Pisang (3100m), and Manang (3440m) villages. We will rest and take time out to acclimatize at Manang. It is highly recommended that during the acclimatization period you stay active. After a day here we move on to Khangsar (3734m), Besi Khola (3955m), and finally, arrive at Tilicho Peak Base Camp (4150m) situated beside Tilicho Lake – our source of water. You will have to boil or sterilize the water before drinking it.  At Base Camp, we have plenty of time to rehearse and prepare for our climb to the summit.  

After reaching the Tilicho Peak summit we head back to Khangsar, Manang, Pisang, Chame, and then drive to Besisahar and on to Kathmandu.
The most common problem of climbing these peaks can be altitude sickness, hence the reason for taking time along the trail leading to Base Camp and from Base Camp to repeatedly climb and ascend to avoid any complications.

Sherpa Expedition and Trekking take care of everything, from permits, fees, and all accommodation along the trail. Your safety and enjoyment are always our main concern. After more than 40 years in the trekking and climbing business, we understand the difference between a good experience and a great experience. Our reputation speaks for itself.
