Tilicho peak Expedition



Tilicho peak (7134m) is located north of Annapurna at the end of Grand Barrier, a 11km long shoulder extending from Annapurna I in north-northwest direction. Tilicho was reported in 1950 by Maurice Herzog during his reconnaissance of Annapurna. It was climbed for the first time by French climber Emanuel Schmutz via Northwest Shoulder which reaches the shores of Lake Tilicho. This is a standard climbing route of the peak with the Base Camp (4800m) located on the Northwest end of the lake.
The climb is very straightforward from the Base Camp to Camp 1 (5800m) on a shelf below the Northwest shoulder along on 50deg mixed rock and ice 590m route. Camp 2 (6200m) is located on the shoulder and is accessed via 55deg 450m snowfield. The shoulder itself in also a 55deg 800m snowfield with a low objective danger and very low exposure due to very large width of the shoulder.
A standard access to the Base Camp is through Besi Sahar via Marsyangdi valley within 10 day trek and affording an excellent acclimatization. After the climb one can fly-out from Humde, only one day hike from the Tilicho Base Camp or from Jomsom with 3 days hike via Thorong La pass (5416m). Tilicho Base camp is also accessible from Kali Gandaki valley through difficult Mesokanto Pass (5300m).
The view from Tilicho is breathtaking on Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, Tibetan plateu and down to the deepest valley in the world the Kali Gandaki valley.
