Make this your first - and hopefully not your last climb in the magnificent Himalayan region. Tharpu Chuli Peak, also referred to as Tent Peak, due to being in the shape of a tent, is located in the central Annapurna region. This is not a ‘walk in the park’, but with a reasonable level of fitness and preparation you will reach the summit.
Tharpu Chuli Peak (5633m) climb takes you via Machapuchare Base Camp through snow and ice. From the summit you can see some of the great colossal snow clad mountains: Annapurna I (8091m), III (7555m) and South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Baraha Shikhar (7647m), Khangsar Kang (7485m) and Tarke Kang (7193m).
Your journey begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara and on to Nayapul. Trekking from here on will take you through terraced agriculture lands, pine and rhododendron forests and along the banks of the Modi Khola (river). The trail will take you through the Tibetan Buddhist villages of the Gurung people and past cascading waterfalls and sightings of several species of animals endemic to this region, Himalayan Black Bear, monkeys, Thar and of course the hardy Yaks grazing at these high altitudes. If you are extremely lucky you could catch a glimpse of the elusive Snow Leopard. The trail leads through mostly through forested areas and past the villages of: Ghandruk (1940m), Chomrong (2170m), Dobhan (2600m), Deurali (3230m), Jhinu Dada (1760m) and finally Nayapul where we take public transport back to Pokhara.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking has an excellent reputation after more than 40 years in the trekking and climbing business. We are constantly ensuring that you have the best experience while in Nepal. We take care of the smallest detail to make sure you are safe and your individual needs are catered for.
You will be carrying all of your gear and share some of the cluster gear. Keeping your pack light is important, so choose light-weight clothing and equipment. Be sure to have a range of clothing suitable for all conditions. Sudden change of weather may require layering of clothing. Three layers will meet your needs. Avoid cotton or fabrics that do not maintain heat when cold. Comfortable durable wool (or proven fabrics) that breathe and expel sweat lends itself to an additional pleasant experience!'
We will offer complimentary water and a windproof duffle that you'll use on the trek - carried by porters. The duffle is yours to keep once at the end of the trek. You can safely leave your bag, together with your non-trekking requirements, at our office in Katmandu and collect them upon your return.
All equipment, such as base camp tents, room accessories, climbing rope, ice screws, snow bar and ice hammer is provided by Sherpa Expedition & Trekking.
Airline departure details. Please leave your airline ticket at our office in the event you need to alter your departure date.
"While you're needed to bring everything on this list, there are suitable variations that are also suitable. Many of these items can be purchased in Kathmandu from stores that cater to mountain trekking.
It is obligatory to possess smart travel insurance or emergency evacuation insurance that covers evacuation from high altitudes. It is advisable that you have cancellation insurance - just in case of an accident or for some reason, due to unforeseen circumstances, the trip is canceled.
For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.
Trekking at altitude requires a lot of energy. We recommend you bring your own healthy snack foods to snack on along the trek.
In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp, your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis.
In case of any high hypoxia problems, it is recommended as a primary precaution to return to a lower altitude. If the problem persists you will need to be evacuated if necessary by helicopter rescue and jeep.
During the climb, your guide will have access to current weather conditions.
Any questions can be directed to Sherpa Expedition & Trekking. We are here to ensure you are well-equipped and prepared for this fantastic adventure.
