Tent Peak Or Tharpu Chuli (5663m) is perhaps the most attractive and visually gratifying trekking peaks in the Himalaya. The summit is almost flat carrying a massive chunk of rock, ice and along snow ridge. Its location right in the Annapurna range makes it even more exciting. Many climbers opt for Tharpu Chuli not just of the challenge it presents but also for a variety of attractions it offers.

Because of low height as compared to other trekking peaks and its accessibility, Tent peak is considered one of the most popular and easiest trekking peaks to climb. Anyone who knows use of ice-axes, ropes and glacier walking will be enough to reach to the summit.

Summit of Tent Peak rewards  the superb views of Annapurna Himalayan ranges including Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Gangapurna, Mt. Fishtail among others. The traditional settings of villages and the warm culture & hospitality of Gurung community will be an added bonus.
