Introduction to Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing
Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing is the perfect combination of trekking and climbing in the Annapurna region. This peak is located in the Annapurna region of Nepal which is also known as Tent Peak.
At a relatively low altitude, it is a beautiful snow-capped peak. The top of the peak offers spectacular views of Annapurna, Annapurna South, Annapurna III, Annapurna V, Macchapucchre, Hiunchuli, Singu Chuli, and Gangapurna Mountains.
Climb the exciting peak and enjoy the beauty of the Annapurna region of Nepal from the top of the peak. Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing in Nepal is for those adventurous travelers who want to do something more exciting and thrilling than trekking.
Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing passes through picturesque villages of various ethnic groups, dense rhododendron forests, and alpine vegetation areas. The most enjoyable part of your entire trip is the snow-capped mountains that you will always find in your backdrop.
Inside the Annapurna sanctuary, you will be mesmerized by the breathtaking views of the protected bamboo, alpine vegetation, and dense rhododendron forest, especially in spring. This area is mostly inhabited by Gurungs and Magars. Observing the culture, traditions, and daily life of the locals will be a joy for your campaign.
Peak Climbing is not Technically Difficult
Tent Peak Climbing is not technically difficult so no technical training is required but you need to be physically fit and have good endurance capacity. As the height of the peak is only 5,663 meters, less experienced and first-time climbers can also climb.
Before Tharpu Chuli Peak climbing, your team leader will give you basic pre-climbing training and brief information. Your climbing Sherpa guide is fully trained, experienced, and licensed by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).
A climbing permit is required to climb the Peak which can be obtained from the NMA office. To issue a climbing permit, all team members must have personal insurance as well as accident insurance.
The best seasons for Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). However, winter is also a good season if you are well-prepared for the cold weather. In winter the mountain views are crystal clear and there are fewer trekkers than in spring and autumn. But it is not wise to do this during the monsoon (July to August).

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
