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 and in one of the most beloved areas of the Himalaya.
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 happens after we experience 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 Himalaya, 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 our 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 to 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 Himalaya, 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 which 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.

Tent Peak Climbing Package includes accommodation in the cost. This accommodation is included only during the set itinerary. While in Kathmandu and Pokhara, we provide a 2/3 star hotel for you. During the trek to Annapurna Base Camp, our guides will pick the best lodge for you to stay in based on their experience as well as room availability. During the peak climbing our guide will set the tent for all our team.
On the trek, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided. For teahouse treks, we will order our meals from teahouses. While camping for climbing, we will prepare the meals for you. After our successful climbing, we will have a celebration/pre-departure traditional Nepali meal in Thamel.
Guide & Porters
A government-licensed guide will lead the trip. All our guides have tremendous experience on the trails and are passionate about the adventure industry. Our guides and porters are dedicated to making your experience of climbing in Nepal a memorable one. If there is any worry during your trip, our guides will address it. Your safety is our number one priority. For groups of more than six people, there will be two guides and there will be one porter for every two trekkers.
As many of our treks lead us high into the Himalayas, it is necessary to let our bodies sufficiently get used to the altitude. Our treks have acclimatization days built into the itinerary. It is best to take it slow to prevent altitude sickness. On average, expect to walk an average of 5-6 hours per day while on the trail. Generally, this peak can be done with an average level of fitness. More important than fitness or experience is one’s personal determination and positive attitude toward finishing and enjoying the trek.
We strongly recommend having travel insurance before going on a trek. We do our best to take care of you, but something can happen that is out of our control. In case of a medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance. You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country. Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains.
Best Time to Travel
The peak seasons for traveling in Nepal are during the Spring (March to May) and the Autumn (September to November). These times provide the best scenery and clearest skies, but of course, they are a little more crowded than the off-season. It is possible to climb during the Winter (December to February), but you will face cold temperatures. It is also possible to climb during the monsoon season (June to August), though the views will likely be covered by clouds and there is a high chance of rainfall.
