You will begin this journey from Pokhara. You will drive up to Nayapul and hike up to the beautiful Gurung village of Ghandruk. You will follow the famous trail of the Annapurna Region that leads up to Annapurna Base Camp.

You will pass many settlement areas, steep uphill and downhill slopes, and narrow rugged trails between Ghandruk to Machhapuchhre Base Camp. You will find many rests stops on the trail to regain your energy. At Machhapuchhre Base Camp, you will surround yourself with bold Annapurna mountains from all sides.

You will trek up to Cave Camp after a day of acclimatization and rest at Machhapuchhre Base Camp. There are no tea houses from here onwards, so our Sherpa crew will set up two camps between Cave Camp and the summit of Tharpu Chuli. Continue on the uneven and icy trail up to Tharpu Chuli High Camp. The following day, you will gear up to reach 5663 meters.

Our Sherpa crew will lead you carefully through the technical sections of the climb. You will use ropes, crampons, and ice axes to conquer Tharpu Chuli. Once at the top, you will enjoy the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges and other peaks of the area.

You will take a jeep ride back to Pokhara after a few hours of trek from Jhinu Danda to Nayapul. Return to the capital city of Kathmandu the following day and board a flight back to your home.

Usually, Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) are considered the ideal seasons to take on this climb. You can get the most out of the journey as the weather remains clear most of the time. Plus, the natural scenery and vegetation remain polished in these seasons.

Short Introduction of Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing

Located in the Annapurna Sanctuary, Tharpu Chuli is one of the best and easy trekking peaks even for less experienced climbers. Jimmy Roberts made the first summit of Tharpu Chuli in 1956 and named it ‘Tent Peak.’ With the considerably low altitude and a few technical sections, Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing is ideal for beginner mountaineers and climbers.

Is Tharpu Chuli Peak Climb Right For You?

  • The weather conditions in the mountain region can be unpredictable and affect the specified length of the itinerary. The package may lengthen for customer safety in case of harsh weather conditions during the summit. So make sure you plan the time of the year carefully. The scenery and conditions may vary depending on the season you choose to go on this climb.
  • For about a week, you will have to walk continuously for 5 to 7 hours per day. So you should prepare yourself physically and mentally for the challenge. Do some exercises to increase your stamina and strength before you come to Nepal for the climb. Also, it will be a plus if you engage yourself in climbing exercises prior to this expedition.
  • Tharpu Chuli Peak stands at 5663 meters (18,579 feet). The peak challenges your stamina, endurance, and strength. The adventure may be incredibly tricky for those with low fitness levels or no previous summiting experience. So make sure that your body can meet the fitness level required for the climb.
  • This journey includes a week of overnight stays over 3000 meters. The thinning air pressure may increase the risk of developing AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). You may encounter shortness of breath and mild headaches during your stay or climb. Your guide will make sure to lead you according to your natural pace. Walk slowly to let your body adjust to the thinning air.
  • Our guides and Sherpas are well-trained and experienced in handling emergencies. They also carry first aid, including some emergency medicines, to help you in time of difficulty. In extreme cases where you need emergency evacuation from any spot, we will rescue you via helicopter.
  • We recommend that you keep yourself active and fit to decrease the risk of fatality. Make sure that you are physically and physiologically capable of taking the climb before booking the trip. If you are unsure about your conditions, you should seek medical advice.
