Tent peak climbing

The trek that starts from Phedi after a short drive of about 45 minutes from Pokhara, takes you to the Annapurna Sanctuary, the most spectacular high mountain amphitheatre, through charming Gurung villages and rhododendron forests. A chance to ascend Tent peak [5600m.], also known as Tharpu Chuli, and exploration of Annapurna sanctuary are the major highlights of this trip.

Being technically straightforward all the way up to the summit the Tent peak has been able to attract a lots of novice climbers over the past few years. It is also the second most climbed trekking peak in Nepal after Island peak in Khumbu region. A 360 degrees panoramic view of the surrounding Annapurna massif from the summit of Tent peak is simply breathtaking.
