Tilicho peak is more challenging and difficult to climb than other mountains having a height of around 7000m. The way to this mountain climbing has two ways up to its base camp. One way goes via the Marsyangidi valley route and another way goes via the Kaligandaki valley route. If the teams go through Kalikandaki valley then it is very hard to cross the Messocanto pass, which is situated at 5300m. altitude From the top of this Messokanto pass, the tranquil view of Tilicho lake can be seen.
The base camp is located near the Tilicho Lake at 4800m high. It takes a few days rest for acclimatization at this base camp. The camp 1 at 5800m is located on a long way distance through the ridges of the mountain. It is a little bit hard times to reach and climb on camp 1. From there also the panoramic view of Tilicho Lake down below can be seen.
