The camp 1 at 5800 m is located a long way distance through the ridges of the mountain. It is a little bit hard to reach and climb on camp 1. From there also the panoramic view of Tilicho lake down below can be seen. Camp 2 is located at a height of approximately 6200 m and is more difficult to reach at this point.

From camp 2, the way directly goes to the Top of the Tilicho peak; and the climbing is a little bit hard with an elevation of 60 degree up towards the top Tilicho peak.
