Tent Peak Climbing

Tent Peak ClimbingTent peak climbing has always been an attractive challenge for the climbers. Not only the peak but also the approach trek to Annapurna base camp is ever popular for its great mountain scenery. Tent Peak climbing main route is from Annapurna Sanctuary. Its altitude is (5695m) it is Called Tharpu Chuli in typical Nepali. It is the best peak in the sanctuary that offers great panoramic view of the surrounding mountain and nice climbing. The climbing route is through standard north; West ridge route to the summit with a high base camp at (4877m) an interesting climb combining glacier views, face climbing and tiptoeing on knife ridges, this mountain offers an unparalleled view of the entire Annapurna Sanctuary.

You will trek along the local trails, through forests, villages and terraced farmland treating you to unparalleled mountain scenery, giving you an inside experience into the Nepalese life and culture. The trek ascends through beautiful river valley of Modi Khola, passes through interesting Gurung villages, beautiful terrace farms and high waterfalls. The Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli) lies at the heart of Annapurna sanctuary with some other attractive peaks like Hiunchuli and Singuchuli. The good thing about tent peak climbing is, it can be combined with Annapurna base camp trek. Our picturesque weeklong approach to the mountain traces the route of the classic Annapurna Sanctuary trek. From our camp at Annapurna Base camp, we then cross the jumbled moraine of the Annapurna South Glacier to establish a high camp below the mountain's north-west ridge. A steep ascent, followed by an unforgettable summit ridge leads to a fabulous viewpoint, surrounded by peaks such as Annapurna South, Fang, Annapurna I and the magical 'Fish Tail'-Machhapuchhre. In little more than 2 weeks, this excellent new adventure can put you on top of your first Himalayan summit.

The normal route follows the North-West Ridge to the summit although the mountain has been climbed via the South-East Ridge as well as South-West Face. The usual route to Tent Peak follows the north-west ridge to the summit. Several groups have also climbed the peak via the southeast as well as south-west face of the peak. Tent peak climbing is a challenging climb involving face climbing as well as sneak on knife-edge ridges.
