Tilicho Peak Expedition
Duration : 30 days
Difficulty Level : 5
Group Size : 2 to 10
Maximum Altitude : 7140 m
Tilicho Peak Expedition involves 30 days of duration and has a maximum altitude of 7140m. Tilicho is located at the end of the Annapurna range. We set up 2 camps of altitude for the ascent. Usually, to Camp 2, the road follows a mixed edge visible from the base camp. Then camp 2 at the top is a big slope with some passages at 40 °. Beware of wind slabs when arriving at the summit after a snowfall.
The base camp near Tilicho Lake is low around 4900 m and is very good for acclimation to altitude. The climb without being technically difficult offers nice mixed passages between the base camp and camp 2. Then it is a race of snow to reach the summit with a superb view among others on the Annapurna.
Location of Tilicho Peak Expedition camps:
Base Camp at 4900 m
For a base camp is the altitude that allows you to recover well is on the shores of Lake Tilicho.
Camp 1 at 5600 m.
He must follow the visible edge of the BC. At the top of the ridge, we tilt a few meters to the other side to set up the camp.
Camp 2 at 6300 m
The ascent of the C2 is a mixed course with a small passage in the rocks that we have designed fixed ropes. The location of the camp is just outside the ridge on a flat.
Summit at 7134 m superb views of Annapurna and the Tibetan and Mustang plateaus.
