Tharpu (Tent) Peak Climbing - 17 Days

Tent Peak (5663m/18,575 ft), known as Tharpu Chuli in Nepali, is located towards the south of the Annapurna Base Camp. We trek in the Annapurna region admiring the diverse flora, fauna and culture of Nepal. Our ultimate goal which is summiting the Tent Peak or Tharpu Chuli offers us panoramic views of the Himalayas including Annapurna, Hiunchuli and others. The 18-day trip begins and ends in Kathmandu but the real trek starts from Naya Pul located near Pokhara, the beautiful ‘Lake City’. Reaching the base camp of Mt.Machapuchhre gives us another good reason to choose the Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli) Climbing trip.

Day 01 :  Arrival day in Kathmandu (1,300m/4,264 ft)

Our representative will pick you  up from the airport and drop you off at  hotel. After checking in, we can take a rest or tour the Thamel,  tourist hub. We will offer you Nepali welcome dinner at the evening.

Day 02:  Preparation and Sightseeing of Kathmandu Valley

Today you will meet and introduce you with your team in our office. Then you can go on the exploration of valley heritages for the rest of the day, as we take care of the preparations of the trip. We will arrange necessary gears and also prepare all necessary documentations.

Day 03:  Flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara & Trek to Dhampus (1700m)

A scenic half hour flight from Kathmandu will shift you to Pokhara, perhaps the most beautiful valley of Nepal sitting at the foot of Mt Fishtail and along the banks of beautiful Fewa Lake. The flight gives you good views of the Annapurna mountain range and after you land at the valley, you can still have more of Mt Fishtail and Annapurna range. The still waters of Fewa Lake make a perfect mirror for Mt Fishtail, where its reflection looks simply spectacular. From Pokhara, one hour bus drive takes us to Phedi, from where we start our trekking. Within four hours, we complete our climb to Dhampus from Phedi.

Day 04:  Trek from Dhampus to Chomrong (2100m)

Today we walk down to Modi Khola River from Dhampus and then walk up to Chomrong from there. At first we reach Jhinu Danda from the river bed, and enjoy natural hot spring near it. Then we push ourselves further, finally reaching Chomrong, which is a Gurung settlement. En route we move through villages and lush vegetation, eying the terraced rice-fields cut along the mountain slopes. Chomrong offers enticing views of Mt Fishtail.

Day 05:  Trek from Chomrong to Himalaya Hotel (2680m)

We enter deeper and deeper into the region of untouched nature today. While the majestic views of Mt Fishtail and other peaks in the Annapurna range exhilarate us during our walk, the thick forests of rhododendron along the path make our trip extravagantly colorful, when they are in full bloom in the spring season. At first we walk across the Modi Khola, and then pass through thick woods to reach Sinuwa Danda. By now the trail becomes less steep and we walk amidst thick woods of rhododendron till Khuldighar and the mixed forests of bamboos and rhododendrons till Doban. After leaving Doban, we go uphill for a while to reach Himalaya Hotel.

Day 06:  Trek from Himalaya Hotel to Machhapuchhare Base Camp (3480m)

From Himalaya Hotel, it is mostly an uphill, steep climb that takes us to Machapuchre Base Camp in about 5 hours. In a short while after starting from Himalaya Hotel, we reach Hinku Cave. We move further ahead past Deorali and find ourselves at the grassy glacier deposit. This place is known as Machhapuchre Base Camp. Although the walk today is demanding, we get richly rewarded for our efforts by the mesmerizing views of Mt Fishtail, Mt Hienchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, and Annapurna II etc.

Day 07:  Trek from Machhapuchre Base Camp to Annapurna Base Camp (3900m)

Today’s trek is a short one, lasting for only about three hours. The trail passes through high altitude alpine meadows and pasturelands. During the trek, a number of Himalayan peaks appear one after the other to our sight, revealing their glorious beauty. The Annapurna Base Camp offers unbeatable views of the south face of Annapurna.

Day 08:  Acclimatization

We set aside a day for acclimatization and sightseeing here in the high Himalayan region. Take short trips around for better adjustments into the high altitude. If you do not have experience of handling climbing gears and equipments, today is the opportune moment to give a try. Our climbing guide will fully assist in your efforts, which will enhance your skills and confidence for the successful ascent of the peak.

Day 09 :  Trek to Tent Peak Base Camp (4450m)

The base camp itself is a plain piece of land where we comfortably set up our camp, but the approach is somewhat difficult. We have to walk across moraines and mountain passes covered with ice. We cross the glaciated mountain passes. At first we go down to Annapurna South Glacier and go across it on its opposite side. A short walk from there takes us to the Tent Peak Base Camp.

Day 10:  Base Camp to High Camp (5200m)

It is about five hour’s steep climb from Base Camp to High Camp. But the views of Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Mt Fishtail, Annapurna I and numerous other peaks tease us all along the way, making us forget our tiredness. We set up our camp at a small flat area at 5200 meters, and spend the rest of the day in immersing into the incredible Himalayan panorama and making climbing preparations.

Day 11:  Ascent of Tent Peak (5600m) and back to High Camp

We start our final climb shortly after midnight. We cross a glacier, and then reach a place with ice-eroded gulleys. With the help of ropes and other climbing equipments, we now push for the tip of the mountain. After standing at the top and savoring the majesty of Himalayan region, we return through the same route to the high camp.

Day 12:  High Camp to Himalaya Hotel (2680m)

We return to Himalaya Hotel from the high camp, with a sense of satisfaction and victory. It takes about 7 hours to reach there from the high camp.

Day 13:  Trek from Himalaya Hotel to Tadapani (2650m)

We are returning to Pokhara from a very popular trekking route rather than returning from the same route. At first we trace our footsteps back to Chomrong and then head towards Tadapani. The trail passes through idyllic countryside, over the farmlands of wheat and potato. Then we go down to Khumnu Khola (stream) via the village Khumnu, across it and up through vertical mountain slope as far as Melanche. From here the trail levels comfortably, and we pass through thick rhododendron forests to reach our final stopover at Tadapani. This place offers captivating views of various peaks of Annapurna region.

Day 14:  Trek to Ghorepani (2775m)

Another day of trek along idyllic rural areas and rich nature takes us to Ghorepani. We hit Banthanti at first along our trail, walk past the sublime views of glowing peaks and thick forests containing rhododendron and other trees to reach Deorali. Now we enter more into the region of human settlements. Finally we arrive at Ghorepani, where we can either stay in a lodge or choose an ideal campsite for spending our night.

Day 15 :  Ghorepani-Poonhill-Nayapul to Pokhara

We leave Ghorepani early in the morning to reach Poonhill (3195m), which is an excellent vantage point for taking in the views of Dhaulagiri, Tukuche, Mt Fishtail, and numerous other peaks in the Annapurna Range. Poonhill is like Kalapathar of Everest region, commanding close-up, breathtaking sceneries of snow-capped mountains ranging to some 600 kilometers from the east to west. The other attraction of Poonhill is the sight of sunrise, for which tourists flock to the site early in the morning from Ghorepai. After savoring the unbelievably beautiful scenes of sunrise and its golden glow across a vast section of the Himalayas, we return to Ghrepani, which takes about half an hour. Then we descend towards Nayapul via Birethanti. The final leg of the journey from the village Ulleri to Nayapul takes us down through an epic flight of nearly 4000 stone steps! From here we board a bus back to Pokhara.

Day 16:  Flight to Kathmandu

We can choose between flying or driving back to Kathmandu from Pokhara, both of which will be quite exciting experiences.

Day 17:  Back to sweet home

We will take you to the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and pay you farewell.
