Tent Peak Climbing (20 Days)

Tent Peak Climbing
Tent Peak, also known as Tharpu Chuli is situated in the heart of Annapurna Sanctuary and 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, but who may otherwise be hesitant to try a higher peak as a Himalayan debut. Besides providing an interesting climb combining glacier travel, face climbing and tiptoeing on knife ridges, a climb on this mountain offers an unparalleled view of the entire Annapurna Sanctuary a breathtaking circle of hanging glaciers and moraines surrounded by some of the most popular peaks on earth. The normal route follows the North-West Ridge to the summit although the mountain has been climbed via  South-East Ridge as well as South-West Face.
