Annapurna Base Camp and Tent Peak

Duration: 18 Days

Trip Overview

Annapurna Base Camp and Tent Peak Climbing is a two-fold adventure- it takes you to the base camp of world’s tenth highest mountain and to the top of 5,850m tall mountain, Tent Peak ( known as ‘’Tharpu Chuli’’ locally). The first half of the expedition takes us through diverse flora, fauna, unique culture of local people, picturesque villages, cascading waterfalls, dense forests , rhododendron trails and unparalleled mountain views in the Annapurna region. It helps you acclimatize for the peak climbing expedition later on.

The Annapurna base camp at 4,130m  is a fantastic vantage point with views of mountains in the Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri range and Mt. Himchuli. We reach the Annapurna Base Camp on the 8th day of the trek, acclimatize the next day at the base camp,  stay at the Tent Peak Base Camp  (4,450m) the following day and get to the Tent Peak High Camp on the 11th day of the trek. We summit the peak on the 12th day and get back to the high camp the same day.

We can enjoy magnificent and up close views of dozens of mountains in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range and Mt. Himchuli among others from the top of Tent Peak. Tent Peak summit is an interesting climb with glacier views, knife ridges, face climbing and exclusive views of Annapurna Sanctuary; it is a stunning circle of hanging glaciers with views of  some of world’s highest mountains. We follow the North-West Ridge to the top of Tent Peak.

Annapurna Base Camp and Tent Peak climbing is for trekkers who are looking to expand the definition of trekking and take it to the next level. This trip is also perfect for those who want some climbing experience before attempting a higher mountain ( higher than 7,00m). Tent Peak climbing with Adventure Club Trek is a reasonably priced, safe and a thrilling experience in the company of a well-trained and experienced climbing guide.
