Trip Overview

Country: Netherlands Peak Name: Tilicho Peak
Duration: 35 Days Route: Normal Route
Co-ordinates: 28°41'04"N 83°57'48"E
Range: Annapurna Range

Tilicho Peak is a tower at a height of 7,134m. Mountaineers rate this as a technical climb, and not so easy. There are two ways to reach up to Base Camp. Tilicho Peak expedition starts up with a drive to Khudi followed by several days trekking to the Tilicho Base Camp via Manang and Khangsar Village as well as another way is a short mountain flight from Pokhara bringing us to the dry and dusty hill town of Jomsom as well as start from Beni Bazaar to Jomsom.

From here we proceed east and north to cross the high and very difficult Mesokanto Pass at an altitude of 5300m. At the top of the pass, we managed to locate some marine fossils (shells) which testify to the fact that the Himalayas was once beneath the sea. We choose the first idea as this allows enough time for acclimatization and fewer difficulties for taking all the logistics. The views on the routes are breathtaking; anything that can surpass your imagination. What you see is Tilicho Peak and the azure and peaceful Tilicho Lake below. It is a glacial lake and unfriendly to marine life. People say they often find marine fossils (shells) that probably support the fact that the Himalayas were once beneath the sea.
