The Himalayas provide some of the best peak climbing opportunities in the world. This Tent Peak Climbing package allows climbers of all experience levels to have a go at one of the great peaks in the Annapurna range. Just east of the colossal Annapurna South Peak is Tent Peak (5,663 meters/18,579 feet) – also known as Tharpu Chuli. Towering over the Annapurna Sanctuary, this is the favorite climbing peak in the area. Come have the experience of a lifetime in one of the most beloved areas of the Himalayas.
From the top of Tent Peak, climbers are amazed by up-close views of the entire Annapurna range, including Machhapuchhre (6993m) Hiunchuli (6441m), Singu Chuli (6501m), and Ganga Purna (7455m). You will never forget these precious moments at the top, as time stands still. Your eyes might just water as you admire the beauty around you. All of this happened after we experienced the popular trek from Nayapul to Annapurna Base Camp (the world-famous Annapurna Base Camp Trek). The trail passes through the teeming Modi Khola river valley, filled with bamboo and rhododendron forests, up to the beautiful mountain scenery of the Annapurna range.
The journey begins from Tikhedhunga after a short pleasurable stay in Pokhara. We trek for about a week in the lowlands of the area, stopping in charming ethnic Gurung and mixed villages throughout the trail. We climb up and up, reaching the famous viewpoint of Poon Hill for an awesome Himalayan panorama. Carry on and up, passing waterfalls and raging rivers. Reaching Annapurna Base Camp, we feel the cool mountain breeze.
It’s already been an unforgettable hike and most people turn back here. But for us brave, adventurous souls, we trudge on. Climbing through the yak grazing fields, we establish our base camp in an open area around 4,450 meters (14,600 feet). The real expedition begins when we’re sleeping in a tent high up in the Himalayas, with nothing above us but the stars. During this time, we’ll brief you on all the information about how to use the gear. No need to be worried, as we’ll give you all the necessary information for Tent peak climbing, to make you confident.
Our Tent Peak Climbing itinerary has been designed by veteran climbers and is managed with utmost consideration for safety. We ensure that this package adheres to protecting your comfort and well-being. We do this by ascending slowly, and not spending too long at too high of altitudes.
In addition, Tent Peak Climbing (Tharpu Chuli) can be experienced by adventurers of all levels. Do not let the idea of climbing a peak scare you away. It is technically difficult, but you will be adequately trained and guided before and during the summit.
Climbing is most possible during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming on the lower part of the Himalayas, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. Tent Peak Climbing (Tharpu Chuli) doesn’t require special fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. It is an easy peak that offers the most beautiful views of Annapurna Himalaya. Breeze Adventure arranges the climb with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
