TENT PEAK BASE CAMP TREK

Low risk – high adventure!

 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.

Highlights of Tent Peak Base Camp Trek

  • A chance to climb a high altitude mountain.
  • The wonderful feeling of reaching the Annapurna Base Camp.
  • Up-close views of Annapurna South, Himchuli, Annapurna 1, Gangapurna, and Mt. Machapuchare Fishtail.
  • Magnificent sunrise 360-degree views over the Himalayas from the peak.
  • Visit Annapurna Base Camp (4130m).
  • Explore Gurung villages and get an understanding of their unique culture.

ITINERARY

Expand All

Our journey begins with a 6-7 hour drive toward the Pokhara Valley and its beautiful Phewa Tal (lake) and then checking in to your hotel close to Phewa Tal. There is plenty to see and do along Lakeside with its many shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.

The trek begins after we have driven to Phedi. After a four hour trek we arrive at the Gurung village of Dhampus (1650m) from where we have an eagle-eye view down to Pokhara Valley. After another four hours we arrive at Patana Village (1820) surrounded by forest and with great mountain views. We will stay here overnight.

Today the trail takes us through the villages of Deurali, Tolka, and the Gurung village of Landruk (1565m). Not long after leaving Landruk we come to the Modi Khola (river) and then through a forested area until we reach Sano Gaun. We then head uphill and cross the Kimrong Khola and then on to Jhinu Danda where we stay overnight. There is a hot spring near the village where you may wish to sit and relax.

We begin the trek today heading to Chomrong (2170 m) from where we have fantastic views of Annapurna South, Machapuchare and Himchuli. We then head down to Chomrong Khola, cross the river and head up to Sinuwa (2360 m) and on for another two hours to Bamboo village (2310m) and Dobhan (2600 m) where we stay the night.

We have a short day of around five hours on the trail and can feel the closeness of the mountains. The trail takes us through Rhododendron forests until we reach Deurali where we stay the night.

An early start today sees us heading to MBC, a trek of around four hours. From MBC, if the weather is clear, there are awesome views of Machapuchare (6995 m), Tent peak (5695m), Annapurna III (7555m), Gandhraba Chuli (6248 m), Annapurna South (7219 m) and Bharha Chuli (7647m). We will camp overnight at MBC.

It is only a short trek to Annapurna Base Camp from MBC. We will stop for the night at ABC where once again the views are absolutely stunning. We can see Annapurna I (8091m) and Singu Chuli (6501m) and other snow clad peaks from here.

The trek today is more physically challenging and depending on the conditions you may be required to use ropes for security. The trail across the Annapurna South Glacier requires caution. After another five hour trek, we reach Tent Peak Base Camp where we will actually stay in a tent overnight.

The trail today is quite narrow and with the higher altitude is more physically demanding. We have to proceed at a slower pace to compensate. After arriving at High Camp you will have further incredible views of the surrounding peaks.

For those interested in climbing Tent Peak will require them to get a very early morning start, at around 3 am. Tonight at High Camp we stay in a tent.

Today we start our descent to MBC along a narrow and rugged trail along a rock face. We will stop along the way, maybe at the Annapurna South Glacier before continuing down, possibly with the assistance of ropes again. We will camp overnight at MBC.

We have a long day ahead of us as we drop over 1700m and head through forests until we reach Sinuwa later in the day. We will stay here overnight.

Today we follow the trail to Chomrong Village and then cross the Kimrong Khola (river) and continue on to the village of Kimrong Danda. We will stop for a short break before continuing on to Ghandruk Village from where there are some absolutely magical views back over the snow-covered mountains. Tonight we will enjoy the well-known hospitality at Gurung Village.

This is our last day of the trek. Before we head off we can visit the Gurung museum where we can familiarize ourselves of their history, traditions, and culture. Leaving Ghandruk we head to pass through the villages of Kimche, Sauli Bazaar, and Birethanti before finally reaching Nayapul where we take a jeep back to Pokhara.

Today we head back on a 6 to 7 hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime!

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

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. 

Meals during the trek

 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.

Transportation

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. 

Physical fitness

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. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
