Tilicho Peak

Trip Introduction

In 1950, Maurice Herzog and his group came to the Tilicho Pass in the want to find subtle Annapurna I. Shockingly, they found before them a colossal divider and a major solidified lake (Tilicho Lake) remaining on their way to the mountain. This divider was given the name “La Grande Barriere” or “the Great Barrier” by Herzog. Here’s the means by which he portrayed it in his book “Annapurna”:

“We were totally overpowered by the Great Barrier whose normal stature I put at almost 23,000 feet. Its barriers finished in a tremendous and difficult to reach keep, appropriate in the inside, and its abrupt dividers rose 10,000 feet over the camp. The stone was smooth and offered no anomaly, no line of shortcoming on which the prepared eye of a mountain climber may would like to follow out a conceivable course. Annapurna was a monster post and we were still just on the external protections.”


Tilicho Peak is the most noteworthy purpose of the Great Barrier which joins Khangsar Kang (7,458m) and Nilgiri North (7,061m) together. It was initially moved by a French undertaking drove by Emanuel Schmutz in 1978 through the North West Shoulder.
