Tilicho Peak Expedition

Tilicho Peak Expedition is a challenging but straightforward climb. Tilicho Peak Base Camp sits on the shore of the aqua-blue Tilicho Lake. Tilicho Peak is technically interesting as the standard route via the northwest shoulder has a mix of rock and ice leading up to steep snowfields. Tilicho Peak has little objective danger because the shoulder is very wide. The summit view is breath-taking: Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, Tibetan plateau and below, the deepest valley in the world the Kali Gandaki valley and Tilicho Lake. In 1950, a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog went to Nepal to look for an approach to ascend Annapurna I. At Tilicho Lake they found a tremendous wall of rock and ice between them and the Annapurna I. In fact, it was a shoulder of rock and ice that extends in a north-northwest direction for 11km and finally drops down into Tilicho Lake. They named it the “la Grande barrier” a great barrier. Tilicho Peak is located at the end of the Great Barrier, high above the glacial Tilicho Lake. It was climbed for the first time by French climber Emanuel Schmutz via the Northwest shoulder which remains the standard climbing route.
