The mountain access is favored from the Annapurna base camp with a climb of three weeks from the camp. The route we will take is the North-West ridge filled with snow and ice. The difficulty is at the level of Scottish Grade II and more sustainable than Island Peak (another popular mountain of Everest region). Anyone who is planning to make a trip more adventurous and fun-thrilling the, don't wait for the opportunities to come. Just join us on the way to Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing.

    Why Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing

    • Trek to the classic Annapurna Sanctuary trail to Tent Peak base camp.
    • Magical close-up views of Annapurna and Machhapuchre (Fishtail).
    • Trekking to the popular Annapurna region.
    • Typical Nepal trekking off the beaten track north of Annapurna.
    • Home of Tibetan- Buddhists.
    • One of the most happening incentive trekking destinations of Nepal.
    • Trekking in highly admired and stunning trekking route in the Annapurna region.

     

    The journey begins from Kathmandu by taking an afternoon flight to Pokhara. The trek begins in the Annapurna Sanctuary. Rather than taking the usual route of the sanctuary, we decide to take a longer route to provide us with the better ascension and acclimatization. Poonhills is the site to encounter the majestic views of the Annapurna Valley and Dhaulagiri. Reaching Annapurna base camp, the time is allotted for acclimatization so that one can adapt to the weather conditions before proceeding to the glacial moraine to Tharpu Basecamp.  Another high camp is used at 5000m. The high camp route is followed by glacier crossing and a 45-degree slope covered with snow on the North-West Ridge. The ridge is quite broader at the beginning but narrow at the last 50 m like the knife edge. The top view from the summit cannot be described in mere words.

    Taking the breakfast in the hotel, we board a bus to reach the domestic airport terminal of Kathmandu. The fight is a 45 minutes journey to reach Pokhara. The flight journey is filled with excitement as you can see the Great Himalayan ranges as you travel past the distance. Manaslu and Annapurna are the two prominent groups witnessed at the airport of Pokhara. A step outside the plane is impressive as there are snow covered mountains on the north side. We board a bus to hit the road for Phedi (bottom of the hill). In order to adapt to the terrain, we have scheduled with uphill walking for a couple of hours on the stony terrain to reach the straggling village of Dhampus. This village serves as our first camp of the trip. The villages we encounter throughout the journey are fully accommodated with numerous teahouses and lodges? The site for camping might differ from the itinerary, depending on the conditions and decisions made by the group leader.

    Day 4

    Crossing Rivers and Passes to Landrung (1620m).

    On the next day, we get the first view of the mountains upfront as we proceed upwards through the forest trail. This trail is facilitated by stone steps at the steeper climbs. Passing through Pothana, we reach to the clearing at the place called Deurali pass. The spot is located on the high eastern side of the Modi Khola River, which flows out of the Annapurna Sanctuary. From Deurali, we move downhill steeply through the forest, passing through the villages and farmlands to final camp at the Gurung settlement of Landrung. The place offers astonishing views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.

    Day 5

    Cross the river at New Bridge and trek to Chomrong (2210m).

    We move downwards to the river, to cross the ‘New Bridge’. After the crossing, we again begin to climb steeply, parallel to the river above the ridges. The trail passes through the bamboo forest and isolated farmsteads. Our lunch is accommodated in the tea houses of Jhinu Danda. Many aspirants can even try out the hot springs, located in the vicinity, to rest their legs from the walk. After having the lunch, we again resume with a climb to reach the crest of the ridge. At this point, we change directions to make descend for the Chomrong camping site. Chomrong houses many wooden lodges, providing the view of the Machhapuchare peak. Once check in at the lodges, one can enjoy the nice cozy evening facilities with a drink on the lodge’s terrace.

    Day 6

    Trek via the villages of 'Bamboo' and Dovan to 'Himalayan Hotel' (2840m).

    On this day, we move forward by stepping down to the Chomrong Khola through the trail of stone steps. The trail takes us through the terraced fields and forest of bamboo and rhododendron to reach the ridge at Sedua. From here, one can witness the view of Annapurna and Machhapuchare. Tharpu Chuli peak lies hidden behind the Annapurna Sanctuary when viewed from the point. Passing through the forest, we reach Kuldi and make descend to reach the lodging place called Bamboo. After passing Bamboo, we resumed upwards through more forest, passing through the lodges of Dovan and finally reaching the camp at the ‘Himalayan Hotel’.

    Day 7

    Trek beside the Modi Khola (river) to Machhapuchare Basecamp (3700m).

    The day begins with a steep climb in order to reach the Hinku cave. The site allows us to see the lodges of Deurali and valleys of the Annapurna Sanctuary. We cross the Modi Khola from the east side, then turning back to the west to climb the area of the Machhapuchare base camp. It is a grassy glacial deposit, housing many lodges. The afternoon is spent with a stroll around the base camp to view the glacier and get a scenic view of the Annapurna I, II, Gangapurna and the Fish Tail peak.

    Day 8

    Early trek for Annapurna base camp (4130m).

    The following day is quite a short journey. We ascend with ease to reach for the Annapurna South Base camp. It is at the distance of just 4 kilometers. Our hard efforts to reach the base camp is rewarded with a mesmerizing view of nature as we climb the last steep. Reaching the camp, we finally get the first sight of the Tharpu Chuli peak. The peak is also called the ‘Tent Peak’ inappropriate English translation. The rest of the day is for relaxation and admiring the view of the Himalayas.

    Day 9

    Acclimatization Day, walk to a viewpoint for the South Face of Annapurna I

    Today is acclimatization and preparation ready for our climb. There are numerous options for walks and exploration in the area including a trip to gaze up at the huge South Face of Annapurna I.

    Day 10

    Trek across the Annapurna Glacier to Tent Peak Base Camp (4450m).

    This day is the last day of the journey, where we will witness such a crowd. From here, we isolate ourselves from the busy crowd to diverge into the wilderness of the glacial deposit. Anyone with a first-time journey to the Himalayas will be speechless after viewing the glaciers. These glaciers are beautiful yet very dangerous, so we are better off walking through the rocks and boulders, rather than the ice. The path is an important route in order to reach the bank. The path is often required to cut through some ice and snow to reach the valley. After doing some labor work, we set up our base camp. After setting the camp, we spend the time by making preparations of the next day.

    Day 11

    Trek to Tent Peak High Camp (5000m).

    We climb the slopes of grass and rubble to reach the high camp. The high camp is located in the glacial bowl at an altitude of 5000m. Today’s trek is generally followed by ascending to the rubbles without any requirements of the climbing gear. However, things might change, if there had been a recent snowfall. It will take around 2-3 hours to reach the high camp, where we will spend the remainder of the day with leisure and some fun.

    Day 12

    Climb Tharpu Chuli Tent Peak (5663m). Return to High Camp (5000m) or Base Camp (4450m).

    This day is pushed with an early start to prepare for the final climb to reach the summit. We leave at the dawn, when the sun is not even on the horizon, guiding our path from the headlamps. After leaving the camp, we have to cross the glacier using the ropes, which will take us to the endless snow-covered ridges. Our guides will help us here by fixing the ropes and using Jumar, we begin to move upwards on a 45-degree slope of snow. The final climb to the summit is breathtaking and memorable experience, where every single moment is remembered. Finally, we reach the Tent Peak. This peak is situated in the heart of the Annapurna ranges and beside the Machhapuchare peak. The view from the top cannot be explained in sheer words are each of the moment is a sight in its own words. After taking our time to embrace the scenery from the peak, we begin to descend for the high camp.

    Day 13

    Descend to Annapurna base camp (4130m).

    This day is just a follow up to reach back to the destination. The difficult task of climbing the peak is completed. From the high camp, we make a long walk back to the base camp. We again cross back the Annapurna South glacier to reach the lodges of the Annapurna base camp. We will reach here by the time of the lunch with the remaining day spent relaxing.

    Day 14

    Trek down beside the Modi Khola to Doban (2540m).

    On the next day, we return back to Pokhara by a different route from the previous one. However, there is only one way into the Sanctuary, hence we trace back from Modi Khola to reach Doban.

    Day 15

    Trek to Chomrong and then by a different trail to Ghandrung (1990m).

    Once again, we descend to Chomrong. On the way, we take a detour in the south direction to cross the Khumnu valley and pass at Komrong. The last descent and a small climb will finally bring us to the end of the journey at the Gandrung village.

    Day 16

    Morning trek to Birethanti and drive to Pokhara. Afternoon free in Pokhara.

    We end the trek with a decline to the road head near Birethanti and drive to Pokhara for lunch and transfer to hotel. After short refreshment, you can explore the Lakeside or can do boating on Phewa Lake.

    Day 17

    Fly / Drive back to Kathmandu.

    Fly / Drive from to Kathmandu by tourist mini bus that takes about seven hours. You can also fly from Pokhara to Kathmandu which takes about 25 minutes. Overnight at Hotel.
