Join Accessible Adventure on this thrilling trek up Tharpu Chuli, also known as Tent Peak, and receive the whole mountaineering and trekking experience you've been looking for.
In Nepal, the optimum periods to climb Tharpu Chuli Peak and do any other kind of peak climbing or trekking are during the spring (March to May) and fall (September to November). During this season, the skies are clear, offering a breathtakingly blue backdrop for the majestic Himalayas and the verdant hills that you will see. When the flowers, like rhododendrons, are at their best of flowering in the spring, the scenery is brightly colored and quite gorgeous. This is the time of year when the flowers are at their peak. The autumn season features skies that are at their clearest, making it the ideal time to visit the mountains and the surrounding regions. However, winter may be a pleasant season if you are well prepared for the chilly weather. The views from the mountains are unobstructed and there are fewer people hiking during the winter months compared to the spring and fall seasons. The monsoon season, which runs from July to August, is not the best time to do this hike because the rain not only makes the trail muddy and slippery, but it also increases the risk of landslides and flash floods.

The following morning, after breakfast, you will be picked up in a private vehicle and transported to Pokhara, which is situated to the west of Kathmandu. thereafter, after having lunch at Malekhu, which was located along the way. Fried fish is Malekhu's claim to fame, likely as a result of the town's location next to the Trishuli river. After lunch, continue driving the remaining distance to Pokhara, making a stop in Muglin, which is the junction where the highways to Chitwan and Pokhara diverge. After a long day of travel, we have the option to spend the evening in Pokhara either wandering around the city or relaxing in our rooms and taking it easy.
After an hour-long drive that takes you through the beautiful community of Lumle on the way to Naya Pul, the true Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek starts today. We arrive at your hotel in the early morning to retrieve you and your belongings, and then we go on to Nayapul after breakfast.
When we first begin our hike from Nayapul, we pass through a number of different villages and farmlands. In the village of Birethanti, which is one of the settlements, there is a tourist checkpoint where we register. Those who are interested in taking the shorter Annapurna Base Camp Trek can do so by following the route that goes through Birethanti. After walking across the Birethanti bridge that spans the Modi river, we continue down the main road, which runs parallel to a large number of terraced farm fields. The fact that the main road winds its way through the woods makes for an interesting hike. After traveling for a while, we arrive in the village of Sudhami, where we have lunch. Following an ascent that begins in Sudami, the hiking track brings us to the community of Hile. Poinsettias are abundant throughout the springtime and can be found everywhere. Tikhedhunga can be reached by foot through a trail that gradually climbs in elevation. It is possible to go around the village and get a glimpse of the people's traditional way of life. There is a waterfall located in the neighborhood of the village, and we can go there as well. As is tradition, the guesthouses and hotels in this area are decorated with flowers. We spend the night in this location at Tikhedhunga.
After a very early breakfast, we climb around 3,300 stone steps and cross a suspension bridge. As we climb, we get great views of the terraced farmlands behind us and the valley we went through yesterday. As we climb, we also get a great view of Annapurna South. We finally get to the village of Ulleri, which has a great view of Fishtail mountain. Ulleri is a big village that was built in the traditional way. After taking a short look around the village, we climb up to Ban Thanti, where we can have tea. There are great views of Annapurna South and Mt. Fishtail while we drink tea. On the way to Ghorepani, we pass through rhododendron forests. We pass through the village of Nange Thanti, where we can get lunch. As we walk along a hilly path, we see a lot of buffalo, goats, and mules. We come to the gate to Lower Ghorepani that says "Welcome to Poon Hill." When they went through a checkpoint at Lower Ghorepani. We walk for about 10 minutes to get to upper Ghorepani, where we can see the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountain ranges from all sides. We can also look around the village of Ghorepani, where we spend the night. There is a fireplace with a chimney in each of the dining rooms, which lets us keep warm.
We get up before dawn and walk for an hour to get to the top of Poon Hill. Many people think that the view of the sunrise from Poon hill is the best view of the sunrise in all of Nepal. From the top of Poon Hill, we can see Dhaulagiri I, II, Annapurna I, Barha Sikhar, Annapurna South, Himchuli, Gangapurna, Mt. Fishtail, Mardi Himal, and Lamjung Himal. In the spring, rhododendrons cover the hills in front of the mountains. After having tea and enjoying the view from the top, we go back to Ghorepani to eat breakfast.
We start our hike to Tadapani after lunch. We go up Gurung Hill on trails in the woods that are surrounded by Rhododendron. Again, from the top of Gurung Hill, you can see the mountains and valleys we walked through in all their glory. We keep walking until we reach the village of Deurali. From there, we go down. During the winter, the narrow path is very icy. We get to a second village called Ban Thanti and have lunch there. We can eat bamboo shoots when it rains. A lot of farm animals and monkeys can be seen on the trail. We go down a slick path, cross an iron bridge, and then start to climb. We get to Tadapani after a short time, where the view of Mt. Fishtail is both amazing and close. From here, you can start hiking to Annapurna Base Camp and Khopradanda. There is a fireplace with a chimney in each of the dining rooms, which lets us keep warm.
After breakfast today we begin our trek again. The trail begins its descent from Tadapani and continues for around 4-5 kilometers resulting in an elevation reduction of around 2700 feet. It winds its way through some of the most magnificent Rhododendron trees. When we get to the Kyumnu Khola creek, we cross the suspension bridge that's built over it. Be aware that at this point, you will no longer be able to purchase bottled water, although the teahouses that dot the path will sell you water that has been boiled. The hike begins with an ascent through the forest to Gurjung Village and its terraced fields. We have our lunch of the day at Gurjug village. After a few more kilometers of alternating uphill and downhill trekking, we reach our destination for today, which is Chhomrong. Chhomrong is a magnificent settlement perched on the lap of the Annapurna range. Along the way, we passed a waterfall and over a suspension bridge. When viewed from the enchanting Chhomrong Village, the Fish Tail Mountain appears to be breathtaking.
After an early breakfast, we make our way down more than 2200 stone steps as we prepare to leave Chhomrong in the early hours of the morning. After walking through the suspension bridge, we begin our ascent, which will take around two hours until we reach Sinuwa. Following Sinuwa, you should prepare ready to live the life of a vegetarian for a few days because religious beliefs prohibit the killing of animals in this area, and you will not be able to eat meat during that time. We are able to view the river below us as we go around the ridges and tiny trails that are nearby. The next part of the journey consists of a strenuous ascent of around an hour through a rhododendron woodland to a little waterfall. In this forest, we may come across some langur monkeys. Following a brief undulation, we make our way down to Bamboo through a series of long and steep stone staircases. In this area, the vegetation consists of a mix of bamboo and rhododendron. Dovan is located at the end of a rather short and less steep trek. After a while, we arrive at Dovan, which is where our lodging for the day is located.
Following the consumption of our meal, we will begin our ascent by traveling through some bamboo groves and woodlands, where there is a possibility that we could come across some black bears, monkeys, and the elusive Thar. As we make our way through the bamboo forest, we can observe monkeys frolicking and playing in the surrounding area. We stop to visit a few shrines and temples as we travel along. A sizable waterfall can be found a short distance away, and taking it all in will be hypnotic and fascinating. Following the ascent, we arrive at a modest temple, and following a little rest there, we go on foot to the Himalaya Hotel, where we will have lunch. After getting some much-needed rest and refueling, we begin our ascent once more toward Deurali. We have the opportunity to explore the Hinku Cave, which is located at the very top of the mountain. There is an avalanche risk on the hill that lies between the cave and our objective at Deurali.
The following morning, after breakfast, we begin our hike and observe that the flora along the trail is much sparser than it was the day before. This provides us with enchanting views of the valley and the river below. In addition to that, we can observe ethereal streams trickling down the steep granite faces. We continue our ascent up the vast glacier valley after crossing the modest bridge that spans the Modi Khola. The glacial valley is littered with boulders. The Machhapucchre has taken on an entirely new appearance as a result of the scant vegetation, which is primarily comprised of upland rhododendron. After crossing the Modi Khola for the second time, we continue to follow it for a while and then begin the ascent to the Machhapuchhre Base Camp. The path goes away from the river and begins to climb steadily in the direction of the moraine ridge that is located on the left side of the valley behind where the lodges are located. Once we reach Machhapuchhre base camp, we are rewarded with wonderful views of the magnificent Mt. Machhapuchhre, as well as Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli, and Gangapurna, among other mountains.
The journey to Annapurna Base Camp will only take a short time today, between two and three hours. In comparison to the previous days, we have a relatively late breakfast before starting our hike. On our way to Annapurna Base Camp, the vegetation gradually disappears, and the trail steadily climbs up the gorge between the moraine ridge of Annapurna Glacier and Hiunchuli Peak. There is an incredible view of Annapurna South and Baraha Shikhar in front of us, and Machhapucchre can be seen in the distance when we turn around and look behind us. We pass by a big banner that bids us a warm welcome to the Annapurna Base Camp before we really reach it. At the Annapurna Base camp, there is a lodge where we may drop off our luggage before venturing out to explore the base camp and the areas surrounding it. From the base camp, close to the surrounding mountains, it is possible to see frequent instances of little avalanches, which is an interesting phenomenon. We are surrounded by Himalayan massifs at the Annapurna Base Camp that we are at. The sanctuary has a breathtaking view because there are no obstructions to the panoramic vista in any direction, which includes captivating views of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna I, Annapurna south, and Hiunchuli peaks, amongst a great number of other mountains. We can have excellent views of Annapurna I and the glacier if we walk to the cairns that are located at the edge of the moraine and then travel along this ridge.
Get up early in the morning to see the sun rise over the Annapurna mountain ranges, especially Annapurna I. The sun setting through the white mountains is the highlight of your journey. The view of the summits from Base Camp Annapurna is spectacular, with peaks like as Machhapuchhre, Gandharva Chuli, Flute Peak, Annapurna I, Annapurna Fang, Annapurna South, and Himchuli surrounding you. Enjoy the exploration surrounding the camp, where there are various memorial chorterns dedicated to the courageous climbers who lost their lives while ascending the Annapurna.
Today's acclimatization day can be spent in the Gangapurna or Annapurna South foothills. We will be traveling to the Tharpu Chuli Base Camp and then ascending the mountain, so acclimation is critical. Mild altitude sickness symptoms are typical as we tour the surroundings surrounding Annapurna Base Camp. Your climbing leader will inform you about the glacial trail's condition and will be completing pre-climb training with your guide. Use ropes to practice ascent and descent. You will learn how to use an ice axe, a snow bar, an ice screw, a harness, jumar, crampons, and other equipment. You will also tie knots with the main and fix ropes. After this, you will be able to rest today.
After breakfast, you will be trekking to the Tent Peak Base Camp today. Begin the adventure by walking through the woods on moraine cliffs and glacier-covered rubble. You must proceed with caution when traversing this path. On the northern side of the glacier, there is a cairn-marked trail. A further hike brings you on a flat boulder close to the freezing stream, and after crossing the creek, you will arrive at the Tharpu Chuli Base Camp's flat grassy area. Enjoy the beautiful views while trekking and stargazing at night.
To reach the summit of Tent Peak, we will get an early start and get up at two in the morning. This day is both exciting and rewarding in equal measure. Following your stroll along the wall rock, you will go along a steep slope that is seventy degrees and is coated with snow. This is the difficult and steep trek along the ridge, but the view that awaits you at the summit is more than worth the toil and discomfort you will experience along the way. Before beginning the last ascent, you will be strolling on a level area of ground.
You will need to do several complex maneuvers in order to reach the final top of Tent Peak, and you will be assisted in doing so by fixed ropes. When you reach the summit of the peak, you will be rewarded with breathtaking panoramas of the surrounding mountains, such as Annapurna, Himchuli, and Gangapurna, amongst others. Before making the descent back to Base Camp over the same path, take some time to take in the majesty of the Himalayas and take plenty of pictures.
We get up extremely early in the morning, well before sunrise, and walk for about five minutes to reach a modest sunrise viewpoint in the western Himalayas, where we get to witness a magnificent sunrise. The area next to the viewpoint contains several chortens and memorials that were built to remember the people who perished while attempting to scale the mountain. A viewpoint allows us to take in a panoramic view of the many mountains in all directions. After getting breakfast at a local lodge, we begin our descent to Dovan, where the Majestic Fishtail mountain will be standing in front of us. After passing through Deurali and beginning to see vegetation once again, we arrive at the Himalaya hotel once more, where we have some dinner and rest for a while before continuing to Dovan and, after passing through the hamlet, arriving at our objective of Bamboo.
We have an early morning wake-up call in Bamboo, where we have some food before beginning our trek through the woods to Sinowa, which takes approximately one hour. On our way to ABC, we first make our way down from the settlement of Sinowa, after which we climb the 2,200 stone steps that we had previously traversed. Rhododendrons, as well as the tree that is referred to as the "itchy" tree in Nepali. We have the option of having lunch at either Sinowa or Jhino danda. Following lunch, we make our way to a natural hot spring in order to give our tired bodies a chance to relax. In addition to the cold river, there is also a hot spring in this area. The glacial regions are where the cold river originates. Following our soak, we make our way back to the lodge where we are staying for the night. After we have finished our journey, we can now relax and have fun at this location.
We have breakfast at Jhinu Danda, then make our way down to Nayapul, passing over one of the longest and tallest bridges in the Annapurna range on the way. We have the opportunity to watch residents at work in their agricultural lands, and for lunch, we can enjoy freshly caught fish at either Kimche or New Bridge. After completing our stay at Birethati, we travel to Nayapul. When we get to Nayapul, our vehicle will be waiting for us there, and then we will travel back to Pokhara.
After having breakfast in Pokhara, we board a tourist bus and begin the journey to Kathmandu. On the route, we make a stop for lunch and rest while taking in the breathtaking views of the hilly landscape we pass through. After a journey of approximately 8 hours, we get to Kathmandu, and when we do, you will be dropped off at a hotel.
Today's agenda includes Swayambhunath, also known as the Monkey Temple, Pashupatinath, one of Nepal's largest temples, and Bouddhanath, a large stupa.
Pashupatinath Temple, one of the ancient Hindu temples, is dedicated to Lord Shiva, often known as the "Lord of All Beings." Lord Shiva represents the universe's destructive side. The famed Bagmati River runs through the Pashupatinath complex. The majority of Hindus in Kathmandu Valley undertake cremation ceremonies for the departed on the river's banks.
Swayambhunath Stupa: The Swayambhunath stupa is a revered Buddhist landmark in Nepal. It is believed that it was formed when the Bodhisattva Manjushri used his flaming sword to dig a canyon at Chhobhar to drain the waters of the vast lake that once served as Kathmandu.
Bouddhanath: Lord Buddha's four pairs of eyes are set in the four cardinal directions atop the 2500-year-old Buddhist stupa erected in the fifth century in the Valley. Bouddhanath is the name of this stupa. This stupa is constantly watching people and their actions. Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims can be seen spinning prayer wheels as they circle the stupa.
You can also visit the surrounding Thamel and Asons neighborhoods, which are packed with stores selling handcrafted goods, trinkets, and apparel. Ason, the city's oldest market, is only a few hundred meters away from your hotel. This market sells tea, spices, beautiful jars, brass sculptures, and tea. This day has also been set aside as a backup in case of travel problems.
After completing the Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing, it's time to say goodbye to Nepal. Three hours before your scheduled international departure for your final destination, you will be driven to the international airport. We sincerely hope that you will remember your time with us. You can extend your stay if you wish to explore all the wonderful Nepal has to offer. We sincerely hope that you will cherish our time together and recommend us to your relatives and friends who are planning a trek to Nepal.
