Tent Peak Climbing is an adventurous climb on a striking peak in the heart of a massive range of Annapurna mountains.
Tent Peak Climb:
Tent Peak Climbing, also known as Tent Peak Climb is an adventure in the Annapurna region and to the top of the peak at 5,663m (18,575ft). The climb/trek offers you to witness the mind-blowing panoramas of the Annapurna mountains and the fantastic landscapes of the Annapurna region. Most of the climbers and trekkers are familiar with the name Tent Peak due to its unique shape of a tent when looked at from the Annapurna Sanctuary and also from the Annapurna Base Camp.
The trip also takes you through the villages, forests, and unique landscapes and also to the base camps of two majestic peaks: Annapurna and Machhapuchre. This is a comparatively easier and more enjoyable peak climbing destination. It lets you explore Nepal and also offers complete trekking as well as a climbing experience. Tent Peak-Tharpu Chuli Climb leads you to the top at above 5,663 m /18,575 ft high where you witness the mind-blowing panorama of the whole Annapurna range of mountains feeling in high spirit on reaching the summit of the tough Nepal Himalaya trekking peaks. Tharpu Chuli Peak and Tent Peak Climb both are the same but most of the climbers and trekkers are familiar with the name Tent Peak due to its uniquely shaped tent when looked at from the Sanctuary and Annapurna base camp. Where’s the local name as Tharpu Chuli which is also recorded and listed in NMA (Nepal Mountain Association), a great technical peak to challenge in less than two-weeks duration in the Nepal Himalaya region.
The grade of Tent Peak or Tharpu Chuli(Nepalese) Peak climb is regarded as PD + which means ‘Per Difficult’ a climb of some technical difficulty in a few sections on route to the summit, the grading comes from French and Swiss Alpine Climbing Classification Systems as used worldwide. All types of adventurers, climbers and trekkers can join in this marvellous adventure that leads you to the heart of the massive Annapurna Himal range at the scenic and beautiful sanctuary as well as the base camp.
From Annapurna base camp where full camping is required for a few days during the climb and back to Annapurna base camp, a great peak to climb although a tough smaller mountain but quite daring and enjoyable where you need from basic to higher level of technical knowledge required to reach the summit and to be on the safe side. Tharpu Chuli Tent Peak Climb begins from beautiful Pokhara city and its verdant valley blessed with natural beauty, where the adventure leads you to the foot of a hill to start trekking to reach Annapurna Sanctuary and at Tent Peak base camp.
The walk leads into nice lovely woodland and villages of Gurung which is interesting to explore and then leaving villages and farmland for the sheer wilderness within the high mountains of the Annapurna range. On reaching Annapurna base camp where our route leads beyond the mainstream trekking trails to reach the foot of Tent peak, with time to acclimatize and practice then head for a long struggle to reach on top Tent Peak / Tharpu Chuli Peak rewards you with an amazing panorama of mountain scenery.
After a great enjoyable adventure and challenging experience head down to low warmer farm areas then end our remarkable journey at Pokhara with mesmerising Tharpu Chuli Tent Peak Climb.
