    Tukuche Peak is a marvel, situated in the anterior of Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Range. The peak was first climbed by the Swiss team in the year 1969. Being secluded, the peak is rarely visited by any of the commercial trekking groups. The expedition to the peak is considered as a lower risk. For anyone, who want to explore the Annapurna, as well as Dhaulagiri area, are hearty welcome in Nepal for doing Tukuche Peak climbing.

    The peak is situated on the Northern side of Nepal in the Mustang valley, also considered as the wildest valley of the region. The valley is filled with the passage of Kali Gandaki River. The Tukuche peak offers some of the spectacular views of the entire Annapurna range, Nilgiri range, and mesmerizing villages of Marpha, Syang and Jomsom.

    Why Tukuche Peak Climbing

    • Most popular and challenging climbing peak.
    • Stunning view of Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Machhapuchare, and Dhaulagiri and so on.
    • Trekking to the popular Annapurna region.
    • Typical Nepal trekking off the beaten track north of Annapurna.
    • Stunning Kali Gandaki River and Mustang Valley.
    • Walking through the Annapurna Conservation Area.

    The journey to the peak is facilitated for about 4/5 days of preparation in the base camp and high camps in the North-East Ridge. The trek towards the peak is made from the deepest valley of Kali Gandaki through a Pokhara-Beni drive. En route, Tatopani is located along with the trekking trail of Ghasa Tukuche of the Annapurna conservation area. The road is filled with the majestic mountain views and valleys throughout the entire trekking journey.The walk to the Tukuche Peak is initiated after reaching the Hidden Valley base camp. Through the base camp, we will have a period of acclimatization in order to adapt to the altitude. Once the climbing phase is completed, there will be descending to Jomsom to have a rest. The resting period is characterized by one or two days. After that, there will be a flight to Pokhara and proceed to Kathmandu.
