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.
Très bonne organisation de la planification jusqu'au départ. Professionnel. L'équipe au BC est top Merci Dawa. In English translation Very good organization from planning to departure. Professional. The team at BC is great Thanks Dawa.
From the first morning meeting, when Dawa Sherpa Lama (our trip organizer and guide) carefully advised us on what to pack and what to leave in hotel in Kathmandu while we were on our high altitude trek, to the hike from Lukla to Namche Bazaar to the Sherpa village of Thame, to Everest View Hotel and then up to Tengboche Monastery -- and finally back to the city for tourist sites and shopping, we were in the best of hands. We had fun, we felt adventurous and always safe and well accommodated at nice tea houses and lodges. Such an amazingly stunning country! All the special requests I had made for research for my book were met and then some.
Dream Himalaya Adventures is a fantastic company to trek with! We had specific dates that we needed to work within and wanted to experience as much as we could within this time and Dawa did a fantastic job of organising our tip to suit. Everything was thoroughly planned and communicated and the hospitality in country was fantastic, from pre-trip meetings to a highly experienced guide. We were so well looked after the whole time we were in Nepal and they were able to make recommendations and changes to our itineraries as the trip went. Couldn’t recommend Dawa and the team enough!
We booked our adventure with Dream Himalaya and we certainly did not regret one bit of it. From the moment we landed, we were well taken care of. We were well informed each step of the way on what was or will happen during the hike. This was especially evident when our first days were unfortunately side-tracked by bad weather in Lukla and we had to make crucial decisions for the remainder of the trip. During the hike, we were well taken care of by our sherpa and porters who were all very nice, helpful and thoughtful. They made sure that we were all taken care of, fed and well rested. They also made sure that no one was left behind no
In okt,nov 2023 I was a member of a small group crossing Saribung pas to Mustang. This logistically very demanding trek was excellently prepared by the Dream Himlay Company and in particular by the trek leader Pasang Sherpa. I appreciated the pre-trip very fast and precise mail answers to my questions from Dawa and I am so grateful to have met so many friendly and extremely helpful assistent leaders, porters and kitchen staff members, who all contributed to make this trek an experience of a lifetime.
We chose Dream Himalayas because my partner, Twyla, previously engaged with them in 2013 to trek the Everest Base Camp. She had a wonderful experience with Dawa and his team; they made her EBC dreams come true and she fondly remembers how very well taken care she her trekking partner were on their private trip. So when the opportunity to visit Nepal came in 2023, we did not hesitate to contact Dawa and to inquire if he could customize a bike-trek-bike itinerary for us. For the past years, we have transitioned from trekkers to bike tourers and we wanted to take on the challenge of biking the Annapurna Circuit but we wanted to do it with an experienced outfitter that we
Who said it's the end of the trekking season?! I completed the Everest Base Camp trek through Dream Himalaya Adventures at the end of December - Christmas Day on the way down - and the weather couldn't have been better. Clear blue skies and, ok, a cold night at -26 Celcius, but appropriate clothing layers overcame that. Reaching the base camp was satisfying, but more challenging was the higher Mt Kali Pathar which was a little deficient in oxygen, but fun all the same. My sincere thanks go to Dawa Sherpa Lama for so competently organising this trip for me, as well as later excursions to Chitwan wildlife park and beautiful Pokhara leading up to a memorable new years eve
Did a three-week trek with Dawa Sherpa Lama's company over Sarabung Pass and through the Upper Mustang region. We told Dawa what we were looking for and he designed a trip that met our hopes and expectations. Our lead Sherpa, Pasang Sherpa is very experienced (7 Everest summits), and the entire team of Sherpas, cooks, and porters provided a very high level of service, including great food during the camping sections of the trip. I would recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures Pvt. Ltd to any of my friends that want to trek in Nepal.
We’ve never been so well cared for! Dawa Sherpa is exceptional at what he does and his team including Kami as additional guide and Mantare Rai and Aiselu Rei, as amazing porters, were friendly and attentive, alert to our needs even before we realized what we needed. And a surprise anniversary cake high on the trail too and another birthday cake back in Kathmandu. Yes, I hit both milestones miles from home but Dawa didn’t let them slip by unnoticed. Through sickness and fleeting ailments, the ready and sound advice, encouragement and support, laughter, kindness camaraderie of these amazing people we were able to complete our lofty goals in our mid-sixties. We didn’t give up and are proud of the accomplishment
I wanted a real authentic experiance as well as challenging. Dawa was nothing short of AH-MAZING, right fron the start, the level of detail he went into with what I wanted, what I was capable of and how I needed to prepare. With constant communication before the trip, I was totally relaxed and confident I was in the right hands. My Sherpa Pasang was outstanding! so experianced in bith climbing and culture, we had the best time and I consider both of them good friends after this EPIC adventure. I def reccomend you using Dream Himalaya Adventures.
