Tharpu-Chuli/Tent Peak (5,663m) is one of the most climbed Nepal Mountaineering Association group ‘ B’ trekking peaks in Nepal. Another major highlight of the trip is an exclusive exploration of the Annapurna sanctuary. The summit of Tent peak offers a stunning 360 degrees panoramic view of the surrounding Annapurna massif.
This peak is located in the Annapurna sanctuary, where the surrounding peaks are presented in all their glory from the summit. The trek to high camp involves crossing the South Annapurna Glacier. This is not an easy crossing. It involves a steep descent into the glacier through very rough ground among the confused mass of loose rocks of all sizes on the glacier floor. Then it needs to be climbed up the other side of the glacier. It takes almost 7 hours to reach high camp. However, you are rewarded with breath-taking views all the way.
The high camp is at an altitude of 5,100m and is very near to the foot of the steep snow face that leads to the summit ridge of Tharpu-Chuli. Descent to Base camp will take more than 7 hours in very slippery conditions. 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 the South-West Face.
The trek starts from a new bridge after a 45-minute drive from Pokhara. Further on, the trail takes us to the Poon Hill, Ghorepani and to the Annapurna Sanctuary. From Poon Hill above Ghorepani, we experience the breathtaking views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The trek goes through most spectacular high mountain amphitheater, through charming Gurung villages and rhododendron forests. We spend an extra day for rest and acclimatization at Annapurna base camp and the next day we trek to the base camp of tent peak. We continue to the high camp (5,100m) and the early next morning we will start our summit push and try to reach the summit before noon, and descent to base camp the same day. We have an emergency day for in case of bad weather for the summit push.

Most of our trekking peaks are over 6,000m; therefore we count it as a tough trip. Your tough level of fitness is really important for this trek. So we strongly suggest preparing yourself for good physical fitness level. You do not need to be an athlete but a good level of overall fitness is important. Being fit will certainly improve your chances of reaching your chosen summit. As an indication, you should be able to walk 8 km / 5 miles with a maximum height gain of 800m / 2,000ft with a 10kg rucksack in 5 hours or less.
In order to get ready for this challenge, you need to be trained at least for about 4 to 6 months to prepare yourself as a strong candidate. You can go to the fitness center every morning for about 2 hours, do hiking every weekend with increasing weights on your pack (i.e. 7kg, 10kg, 13 kg, 16kg and up to 20kg). Manage some time for cycling for a couple of hours for 3 or 4 times a week. However, during climbing, there might be little symptoms of altitude illness like mild headache, fatigue, etc. but take it as normal and just drink a lot of water (4 – 5 liters) every day. On this trek, you need to be able to hike 6 – 10 hours over hilly terrain up to 6,000m of altitude with a daypack.
All of our trekking peaks climbing trips are accessible to experienced trekkers and those who have done some climbing trips in European mountains in order to take another challenge on the Himalayas Mountains. This trip will be helpful if you want to gain some knowledge about mountaineering and have a future plan to climb the BIG Mountains.
If you have any previous mountaineering experiences and well knowledge about playing with mountaineering gears, good with rock climbing and ice climbing will increase the chances of reaching the summit but previous trekking and mountaineering experiences are not mandatory and also doesn’t require any technical experience. Note that if you are participating in one of the technical climbing peak then you must have well knowledge about playing with mountaineering climbing gears (i.e. crampon with boot, Ice axe, harness, ropes, jumars, prussiks, abseiling, moving past knots, anchor, etc.).Crampons are used for maximum grip and harness and ropes are use for maximum safety during climbing. But for those who have no mountaineering experience and skill but have gottough level of fitness, you will have a basic training session by our guides about how to use the climbing gears during rest/acclimatization day. So we always make sure regarding the safety of the team and the successful climb of the peak.

I’m so glad I chose Dream Himalaya to handle the logistics for my EBC Trek this April 2023. Everything was meticulously planned, handled and executed from the get go which enabled me to enjoy a great hassle free trek. Everything from thé coordinator, guides and sherpa were awesome. Truly world class service from the day you arrive at KTM until you say your goodbyes . These are the stuff dreams are made of .
What an adventure ! in a beautiful location surrounded by beautiful people. I was treated like family by Dawa and Pasang. All I have is beautiful memories and superb photos. I loved Nepal / Himalayas/ Everest region and would only recommend Dawa and the team to trek with in Nepal.
We had the best time with the team from Dream Himalaya Adventures they went above and beyond for me and my wife before, during and after our trip I will be 100% returning to do my trips with Dawa and his team
One of the best hiking experiences ever with a very kind trek guide and a motivating porter. The food and accommodation were excellent, and mostly the responsibility of the company towards its clients is remarkable until the end of the trek. Looking forward to travel again with Dream Himalaya Adventures.
Manaslu summit climb expedition - Aug-Oct 2022. Unfortunately we were unlucky with the weather due to crazy amounts of snow and avalanche risk and weren't able to summit but I had a great adventure thanks to Dream Himalaya. Dawa Sherpa and Tendi Sherpa did everything in their power to help our expedition succeed. Dawa Sherpa runs a fantastic company and I would highly recommend his services for any adventure from climbing to trekking in Nepal. He happily answered all my questions in advance of the trip promptly and thoroughly. Tendi Sherpa is an excellent certified mountain guide (IFMGA) which is strong, communicates well and is a pleasure to climb with. All the services provided were fantastic. Base camp was amazing. Comfortable single
Overall we were very satisfied with their services. Dawa really made an effort to fullfill our needs. Top of the cream were services in the base camp. Organization, food, tents and kindness of the personel were on the top level. I very recommend!
Amazing hispitality, excellent and very reliable service, good and diverse food in base camp, very professional and kind stuff!
