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 02:  Kathmandu valley sightseeing & getting prepared

This is the valley where flourished Buddhism and Hinduism together over the centuries. The ancient architectures of Buddhist monasteries and Hindu temples are just spectacular. As this is the capital city of Nepal, people live together  from different walk of life and ethnic communities. After a breakfast, we start our guiding tour to UNESCO heritage sites; Kathmandu Durbar square, Monkey temple and Bouddhanath stupa; the major Buddhist sites.

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

A scenic half hour 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:   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:  Chomrong to Himalaya Hotel (2680m)

After breakfast, the trail drops to cross the Chhomrong Khola and then ascends to the charming village of Sinuwa. Thereafter the trail enters the upper Modi Khola Valley through dense forests of cane, rhododendron and oak. It rises then drops to the village of Bamboo(2310m) on the banks of the river: a prefect lunch spot. After lunch, continue up through uninhabited forest to Dobhan, later crossing several avalanche chutes before reaching the small village of Himalaya Hotel

Day 06:   Himalaya Hotel to Annapurna Base Camp (4130m) via MBC, 5-6 hrs

Today the trail climbs on past the Hinko Cave, Deurali and then Machapuchare Base Camp, which isn’t really a base camp since climbing Mt Machapuchare is not permitted. Since it is totally surrounded by mountains, this area is known as the Annapurna Sanctuary. Two hours trek from Machapuchare Base Camp takes us to the Annapurna Base Camp at elevation of 4130m. We will see unobstructed amazing views of mountain scenery.

Day 07 :  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 08 :  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 09:  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 10:  Ascend 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 11-13:  Return Back to Pokhara

We head back down through beautiful Ghandruk village and from there we drive down to Pokhara, a beautiful city.

Day 14 :  Fly from Pokhara to Kathmandu

We fly to Kathmandu in the afternoon or early in the morning. We will have a farewell dinner in the evening.We can spend the day taking the much needed rest or catch up on some last minute shopping.  Our flying to Kathmandu will give us a incredible views of sky touching Himalayas.

Day 15:  Final departure to sweet home

Our journey in Nepal comes to an end today! Majestic Himalaya representative will drop you off at the airport approximately 1 hour before your scheduled flight.
