Tent Peak, also known as Tharpu Chuli, is located right in the heart of the Annapurna Sanctuary, just south of Annapurna Base Camp and directly opposite Machhapuchhre (Fishtail). It is commonly known as Tent Peak due to its shape. Its central location makes it an ideal trekking peak, usually combined with the popular Annapurna Base Camp trek. From Tent Peak's base camp you continue along the route crossing the glacier towards the North West Ridge. Although the peak is somewhat less challenging than Mera or Island Peak, it does provides some ice and snow difficulties and the ridge becomes knife edged towards the summit, making for an interesting climb. From the summit you will get an unparalleled view of the entire Annapurna Sanctuary, a breathtaking circle of hanging glaciers and moraines surround by a semicircle of some of the world’s highest peaks. This peak provides a good opportunity for those who want to take the next step up from trekking to mountaineering.
