Climbing Tilicho Peak:

Tilicho Peak is one of the most challenging and rewarding mountains to climb in Nepal. With an elevation of 7,134 m (23,405 ft), it's the 21st highest mountain in the world and offers a technical climb that requires skill, experience, and determination.

Climbing Tilicho Peak starts with a trek through the Annapurna region
 of Nepal. Trekkers and climbers typically start in Besishahar, a town located about 185 kilometers (115 miles) west of Kathamandu. After there, the trip leads you over beautiful villages like Chame and Manang to the 4,200-meter-high Tilicho Base Camp (13,780 feet).

Strict slopes, crevasses, and exposure to severe weather are all part of the trek to Tilicho Peak. Climbers need to be skilled in snow and ice climbing techniques as well as have high-altitude mountaineering experience. The north-west ridge, which a French expedition party first successfully climbed in 1978, serves as the traditional climbing route.

Tilicho Peak provides breathtaking views of the Annapurna massif, which includes Gangapurna, Annapurna II, III, and IV. The stunning Tilicho Lake, the highest lake in the world at an elevation of 4,919 meters (16,138 feet), will also be visible to climbers.


The experience of climbing Tilicho Peak may change your life if you're willing to take on the challenge. With rest days and acclimatization days included, the climb typically takes between 4 and 5 weeks. Proper mountaineering gear, such as ropes, crampons, ice axes, and a high-altitude tent, is required.

 provides knowledgeable guides, top-notch gear, and a detailed schedule. Also, we take care of the paperwork and permits so you can concentrate on the climb and have a good time.
