This range consists of several peaks, with Tirich Mir (Main) standing as the highest peak in the entire Hindukush range. The traditional route to this peak typically involves passing through Chitral – Reshun and Khosht. However, there exists a shorter route as well. Following a two-hour jeep drive on the Chitral-Mastuj road, one can opt for a more direct route from Perpish to Barum village, then proceeding through the glacier of the same name (Barum) to reach the peak. This shorter route is recommended for climbers who have already acclimatized themselves to high-altitude conditions, as there is a significant risk of altitude sickness otherwise.

The first successful ascent of Tirich Mir Main Peak occurred in 1950, achieved by a Norwegian expedition led by Arne Naess. Other members of the expedition included P. Kvern Berg and H. Berg. Arne Naess led another successful expedition to Tirich Mir East (7,692 meters) in 1964, with two members of the expedition, R. Hoibakk and A. Opdal, reaching the summit of Tirich Mir (E).

In 1974, Tirich Mir West II (7,500 meters) was climbed by Beppe Re and Guido Machetto of an Italian expedition. The expedition also successfully climbed the previously ascended Dirgol Zom peak. Tirich Mir West I (7,487 meters) was conquered in 1967 by a Czechoslovak expedition led by Vladimir Smida. The team reached the summit via the north-west col, with members J. Cervinka, I. Galfy, V. Smida, and I. Urbanovic reaching the top.
