Here is an opportunity to climb a high altitude mountain and survive to talk about it. Tent peak (5663m), also known as Tharpu Chuli lies just south of Annapurna Base Camp in the spectacular Annapurna Sanctuary region of Nepal. This trek offers it all – soaring peaks, lush forests and valleys, raging rivers and genuine hospitality of the villagers along the trail.
The trek to the top will be demanding as you cross snow and ice, but with the right gear, you will be safe and capable of reaching the summit. This mountain may seem small in comparison to nearby Machapuchare but is nevertheless a giant compared with mountains outside of Nepal. The mountain is referred to as “Tent Peak” due to its shape resembling a tent. This trek is graded as “high advanced” due to the altitude and needs to cross-ice and possibly thick snow on the way to the peak. Experience in using some special climbing equipment may be necessary.
This trek begins at Pokhara, the launch point for many treks to Annapurna Conservation Area. There will be time set aside along the trail for you to acclimatize. You will pass through Annapurna Base Camp (4130m) and Machapuchare Base Camp (4130m) before climbing Tent Peak.
Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will advise you on what skills are required. We will not take any unnecessary risks. However, you must have a good level of fitness.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of these regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
