Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing

Locally known as Tharphu Chuli, Tent Peak is situated in the heart of Annapurna Sanctuary and 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. Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing trek commences from the Lake City of Pokhara. Then need to be climbed up the other side of the glacier. The South Face Base Came of Annapurna is the finest ascent to the climbing teams, not only to the enjoying but also seeing ranges of mountain scenery.

After summiting the peak, return the same route until ABC. It is among the few snow-clad summits at this height range in Nepal. This peak offers an ideal opportunity for those who want to summit a Himalayan peak, The immense South Face of Annapurna South (7291m), situated at the head of the Annapurna South Glacier, guards the Western flank of the Sanctuary.

And right in the middle this all is Tharpu but also seeing ranges of mountain scenery. Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and Spring (March to mid June) are the best seasons for the Annapurna Base camp trek and Tharpu Chuli climbing trip. The weather is sunny and warm, with outstanding views but the nights are cold and can fall to freezing in higher elevations.

From ABC, we trek down to Bamboo, Jhinudada, and Nayapul, passing by waterfalls, villages & settlements, and the rhododendron forest that bloom with red flowers during the springtime. The peak was first summited in 1964 by a Japanese group on an expedition to Annapurna South. Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing is best suited to those who are intending to step up from trekking to amateur mountaineering.

Please remember that you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment to a minimum.

Simply put "WOW". I have never met more responsible people in my life. They made sure every step of the way was taken care of from the drivers, tour guides, trek guides, porters and hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this company for its hard working, responsible and friendly people. The people make a company. Special thanks to: Anuja "the planner", Chitiz & Ashmir "the ultimate trekking guides" and finally Robin "the enthusiastic jungle bird watcher".

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip!

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip! We did the trip that included time in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan National Park and a 5-day trek around Annapurna. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we had guides showing us around and everything was perfectly planned for us. Maila, our trekking guide was amazing and had so much knowledge! It was a great trip!

Incredibly well organized

This company was amazing. Incredibly well organized. I felt safe and spoiled. Our airport transports were always early and waiting for us. All of our reservations for our accommodations and busses were perfect. The temple tour we took was super fun and educational. Some of our luggage got stuck in our layover country and between this travel agency and our hotel they were able to get it for us and deliver it the next day. We also had a 10month old traveling with us and they made sure that our accommodation and travel plans were safe for him. During our 5 days of trekking, we had THE BEST guide/sherpa. I would positively let them plan another trip for us. Thank you!!!!

I had a wonderful experience

I recently booked a tour with Plan Holidays, and I had a wonderful experience. Anuja scheduled the tour, and it was comforting to have our trip covered without any concerns. Our guide Shiva took us through Kathmandu, and showed all us the highlights of the city and provided us with the cultural and historical background. We also did the Poon Hill Trek with guides Chitiz and Ashmir, who provided a peaceful hike through the Himalayas. On our last two days, we spent time in Chitwan National Park, where our guide, Robin, took us on adventures where we saw crocodiles and rhinos. The entire package was affordable, and our guides met our every need; they went out of their way for us on many occasions. It was comforting to get off the bus and see our guides waiting for us with our name tags. I would highly encourage anyone to book a trip through this company. I promise that you will have an amazing experience--five stars!
