Tent Peak Climbing is a popular climb often known by its alternative name of “Tharpu Chuli” coined by Jimmy Roberts in 1956. It is situated at the heart of the Annapurna sanctuary among a few snow-clad summits in Nepal.  Part of Tharpu Chuli known as the Sanctuary is an amphitheater with a range of impressive Himalayan Peaks forming a vast bowl, accessible only from the South through the Modi Khola River valley. A Japanese expedition crew ascended Tent Peak Climbing as the first summiteers in 1956. Since then its glory has spread all over the world among mountain lovers as well to regular tourists to Nepal.

To climb the Tent Peak, the trail goes through the Annapurna sanctuary, offering wonderful views of mountain panoramas at the South Face Base Camp of Annapurna. The huge South Face of Annapurna South (7291m), situated at the head of the Annapurna South Glacier, guards the Western flank of the Sanctuary. Right in the middle of this all is Tent Peak (5663m) but also seeing ranges of mountain. The trek to Tent Peak Base Camp involves crossing a steep descent into the South Annapurna glacier through very rough ground among the confused mass of loose rocks of all sizes on the glacier floor. Then, it ascends up the other side of the glacier taking almost 7 hours to reach the base camp, which lies at roughly at 4500m. However, after all this, you are rewarded with wonderful views all the way to the Tent Peak. From here to High Camp (5,000m) it takes about 4 hour’s ascent. It is very near to the foot of a steep snow face that leads up to the summit ridge of Tharpu Chuli, where, the surrounding peaks are presented in all their glory from its summit. The views from the summit are outstanding with eight summits in excess of 8000m: Annapurna I, Baraha Sikhar, Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, Annapurna V, Khansar Kang and Tarke Kang. In addition, at a height of 6993m it is perhaps the most beautiful peak in the region Mt. Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Mountain) considered to be a sacred mountain. The descent to base camp will take 7/8 hours in very slippery conditions. Normally climbers follow the northwestern ridge to the summit, although the mountain has been climbed via the southeastern ridge as well as southwestern face.

Tharpu Chuli (Tent) Peak climbing combines all the best elements of a Himalayan expedition. This trip is strenuous and demands that each participant be well versed in alpine snow climbing skills. Additionally, t is an excellent way to explore the culture of Nepal and ascend two Himalayan peaks in the safest possible way. Collecting a bunch of Himalaya experience, Tent Peak climbing trip will end at Nayapul or Phadi. We at “Nepal Mother House Treks & Expedition” are glad to organize your Tent Peak Peak Climbing trip with our experienced climbing guides and expert staff.
