Tilicho Peak is towers at the 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; our expedition starts up with a drive Besi Shahar, followed by several days trekking to Base Camp as well as another way is can fly from Pokhara to Jomsom and start further. But we choose the first idea as this allows enough time for acclimatization and less difficulties for taking all the logistics. The views on the routes are breath taking; 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.

We set up the base camp near the lake some of days will be rest celebrating the Puja by Buddhist priest. Tilicho stands as a daunting task above the camp which is on a moraine. From the base camp (around 4400m) we set out for our final goal – Tilicho 7,134m. Tilicho (7,135m) as seen from near the Base Camp.
