The grade of the climb we have used comes from French and Swiss Alpine Climbing System Classification as “PD +” ‘Per Difficult and plus’ means a technical peak to climb, but can be reached with much mountaineering skill and knowledge. Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli) Climb takes you in the middle of beautiful Annapurna Sanctuary hidden beyond by array of towering peaks that encircles the base camp and the sanctuary area. The walk leads from beautiful Pokhara to reach high mid hills within the cooler area covered by lovely woodland of rhododendron and pine trees where walk continues through nice farm villages of Gurung the native tribe of Annapurna region. Slowly walk leads into a river gorge and then reaching a wide-open valley at Annapurna Sanctuary and the base camp, from here our route diverts to far end corner of the sanctuary within the remote area at Tent Peak base camp.
