Trip Information

Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) is located in the Annapurna sanctuary.  The Sanctuary is an amphitheater, with a range of impressive Himalayan Peaks forming a vast bowl, accessible only from the South through the Modi Khola River valley. The immense South Face of Annapurna South (7291m), situated at the head of the Annapurna South Glacier, guards the Western flank of the Sanctuary. And right in the middle this all is Tharpu but also seeing ranges of mountain scenery. Tharpu Chuli is 5663m where the surrounding peaks are presented in all their glory from summit. The South Face Base Came of Annapurna is the fine a scent to the climbing teams, not only to the enjoying. The trek to advance camp involves crossing the South Annapurna Glacier. This is not an easy crossing. It involves a steep descent into the glacier through very rough ground among the confused mass of loose rocks of all sizes on the glacier floor. Then need to be climbed up the other side of the glacier. It takes almost 7 hours to reach advance camp. However, you are rewarded with breath-taking views all the way. Advance camp is roughly at 4500m, just on the snowline.

The high camp is at an altitude of 5000m and is very near to the foot of the steep snow face that led to the summit ridge of Tharpu Chuli. It takes about 4 hours to climb from advance camp to high camp. Descend to Base camp will take more than 7 hours in very slippery conditions. . The normal route follows the North-West Ridge to the summit although the mountain has been climbed via the South-East Ridge as well as South-West Face.
