Tilicho Peak is a little harder to climb than some of the other Nepal Peaks as it is around 7000m. There are two routes to the Tilicho Peak base camp one via the Marshyangdi valley and the other via the Kali Gandaki valley. Messocanto Pass (5300m) from which the tranquil Tilicho lake can be seen is much more difficult to cross if approached from the Kali Gandaki valley. Base Camp is located near Tilicho Lake at 4800m. It takes a few days rest or acclimatization at this base camp. Camp 1 at 5800m is located a long way away through the ridges of the mountain. It is a little difficult to climb up to Camp 1. From there also Tilicho lake down below can be seen. Camp 2 is located at a height of approximately 6200m and is even more difficult to reach the 40 degree slope requiring the use of fixed ropes. From Camp 2 the Tilicho Peak climbing route leads straight to the summit with a somewhat difficult 60 degree climb towards the very top. Avalanches sometimes occur here so the team should monitor the situation carefully before proceeding with their Tilicho Peak climb.
