Tilicho towers at the height of 7134m. Mountaineers rate this as a technical climb, and not so easy. Our expedition starts up with a drive Besisahar, followed by several days trekking to Base Camp. There is another way; one 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 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.
We set up the base camp near the lake you can see in the picture below. 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.
