About Trip

Tent Peak is one of the popular climbing peaks in the Annapurna region that is located at an elevation of 5850 meters. This is an excellent opportunity to have a peak climbing experience with a wonderful trek to Annapurna base camp. This adventurous trip also offers the cultural scenario of the ethnic communities and their daily life pattern.

Starting the trek from Nayapul, you walk through the Modi Khola belt, ascending to Ghandruk. This beautiful Gurung village is a source of folk culture and traditions. Women have great role in the society where Men go to join the Army. Exploring the culture of Ghandruk, you trek all the way to Annapurna base camp via Machhapuchhre base camp. During the trek, you cross beautiful rhododendron, bamboo and oak forest of the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). At the base camp, you will be surrounded by the towering peaks of the Annapurna encircle you. With acclimatization, you approach to the south of ABC and reach to the Tent peak base camp. High camp is set around 4500 meters. Using the climbing gears, you reach at the top of the Tharpu Chuli (5663m) and enjoy the magnificent panoramas of snowy peaks, including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail and others. Retracing through the same route, you reach to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara.

Pre-Trip Meeting

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.

Best Time to Trek:

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best time to trek in the Himalayas and summit Tent Peak. During these seasons the sky is clear which means that we can fully enjoy remarkable views of the mighty Himalayan vista.
