About Tent Peak Climbing in Autumn and Spring

Tent peak is among some of Nepal’s most famous trekking peaks. What makes the Tent Peak climbing experience so special is that you can take it as an extension of the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trail. Thus, you get to experience the famous ABC trail while soaring as high as 5660m. Adventure enthusiasts who want to advance from trekking to basic mountaineering should consider the 17-day Tent Peak Ascent. You also get a beautiful glimpse of the scenery and mountains in the Annapurna region on your journey.

Tent peak is locally popular as Tharpu chuli and climbing the peak can act as a stepping stone for many of your yet-to-come summit experiences! The trail to climb Tent Peak passes through Annapurna Base Camp and provides stunning views of the mountain range. The massive south face of Annapurna South (7290 meters), which is located at the start of the Annapurna South Glacier, protects the sanctuary's western flank. The route to Tent Peak Base Camp requires descending steeply into the Annapurna South Glacier while navigating a jumbled mass of loose rocks of various sizes on the glacier floor. Then, it climbs up the other side of the glacier for about 6 or 7 hours to get to Tent Peak's Base Camp, which is at roughly 4600 meters.

The Tent Peak ascent Itinerary routes meander over rocky terrain, terrace farming, rhododendron and pine forests, and local settlements. The path of the journey goes via the lovely villages of Nayapul, Tikhedunga, Ulleri, Ghorepani, Tadapani, Chhomrung, Sinuwa Danda, Bamboo, Dovan, Himalaya, Deaurali, M.B.C., Annapurna Base camp, before arriving at the final destination of Tent Peak Base Camp and Summit to Tent Peak.

The following four days will get spent climbing Tharpu Chuli from Annapurna Base Camp. We set up an intermediate camp, then the next day ascends a narrow valley to our base camp to allow for safe acclimatization. On the morning of our summit, we start early and climb fixed lines up slopes as steep as 70 degrees to the Northwest Ridge. We cross the ridge, which gradually steepens into a brief stretch with a knife-edge, and ascends to the peak. We are surrounded by the enormous Annapurna Sanctuary, a wilderness of ice and rock that is home to many peaks, including Machhapuchare, Annapurna I, Annapurna South, and Annapurna I (8,091 meters).

Your 17-day itinerary for Tent Peak Climbing begins and ends in Kathmandu. You will be met at the airport by a representative of Outfitter Nepal, who will then transport you to your accommodation. Check into your accommodation, then take a stroll through Thamel's bustling streets in the evening. You will meet your climbing guide the following day, who will give you a tour briefing. You will get to learn about the trail's condition and the difficulties that lie ahead. Your guide will also provide you with the answers to your questions. Book a departure date with us or contact us to set one as per your convenience!

In the afternoon, clouds cover the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges, and the temperature lowers in the evening. The sunrise and sunset views from Poonhill are the main draw of this trek.

Witness gorgeous sunrise from Poon Hill

Poon Hill, a well-known vantage point in the Annapurna region, is situated above the village of Ghorepani. Poon Hill offers beautiful dawn and sunset views, as well as a distant perspective of the western Himalayas. Trekkers typically take a short trip up to Poon Hill.

The sunrise above the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri region peaks at Ghorepani in the early morning is the highlight of the Poon Hill Trek. If getting up early isn't your thing, you'll still be as amazed if you stay for the sunset. The view of the Annapurna range is glorious from here!

Trek through Annapurna Sanctuary

The trail passes through Annapurna Sanctuary, which is a protected area. You get to see a diverse range of flora and fauna. Different types of forests, vegetation, and climate are part of this sanctuary.

An astonishing range of habitats is created by the various combinations of heights and depths. Rhododendron and bamboo cover the south-facing slopes in dense tropical rainforest, whereas the north-facing slopes, in the rain shadow, have a drier, cooler environment.

Seasons to Ascend the Tent Peak

Tent Peak Climb in Spring (March, April and May)

Spring is considered the best season to ascend the Tent Peak and especially trekking in the Annapurna region. In Nepal, spring lasts from March through May. In the spring, the temperature is perfect for trekking as it is neither too hot nor too cold. In the spring, the daily average temperature ranges from 61 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit or 16 to 22 degrees Celsius. During the night, the temperature may fall by up to 2 or 3 degrees Celsius or 27 or 28 degrees Fahrenheit.

In the spring, the sky is clear, allowing you to take in uninterrupted vistas of the stunning Himalayan ranges. There is a chance of rain in the spring, but it rarely lasts long.

Tent Peak in March

The weather is very different in each location along the Annapurna trail in March because of the difference in altitude. Thus, there are some variations in the Annapurna region's temperature and sunshine levels. Also, the projected amount of rainfall along the places is fairly diverse.

March is generally a dry month. It is extremely dry and chilly in the first few days of March. In comparison to earlier days of the month, the temperature is warmer now. The nighttime temperature is lower than the midday temperature. Your trek's high-altitude areas can experience temperatures as low as -15 degrees Celsius.

Tent Peak in April

It is of the best months to trek on the Annapurna Trail in April. It's neither too hot nor too cold! The sky is therefore clear. Although not as long as in the summers, the days are still pretty lengthy. You can take strolls through the settlements you visit on your walk thanks to the long days.

In the lower parts of your trek, it rains more frequently. Lower amounts of precipitation are experienced as you ascend in altitude. Ascending the Tent Peak goes without any hassle!

Tent Peak in May

In the Annapurna region, May marks the end of the spring season. The monsoon season in Nepal officially starts when this month is through. After May, the Annapurna region has quite a bit of rainfall. May's later half experiences a significant amount of rainfall as well. Thus, you have to pack your equipment accordingly for your peak climbing adventure.

Tent Peak Climb in Autumn (September, October and November)

Autumn is another best time to trek in the Himalayas, especially for Tent Peak climbing! It is the time of year when you can enjoy the exquisite natural perfumes of numerous flowers while climbing to Annapurna, and the weather is clear and precise as a result of heavy rainfall before the autumn season. Due to the temperate weather and fresh surroundings, the autumn season is regarded as one of the best times to stroll around the Annapurna trail.

Throughout the autumn season, you won't have to be concerned about persistent rain or thick clouds obstructing the breathtaking view of mountain ranges and the countryside. It is pretty pleasant to stay because the temperature at lower elevations consistently ranges between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius and does not dip below freezing at night. Similarly, the temperature may drop as you go higher, but not at an intolerable level!

Tent Peak in September

The start of the autumnal season is signalled by September. But September's first few weeks are wetter than the remainder of the month. The monsoon season finishes in August, which accounts for this. Therefore, the first few weeks of September still see some rain.

The hottest month of the autumn season is in September. As fall progresses, the amount of sunshine gradually diminishes. The wind speed is likewise at its lowest in September. This makes trekking to Annapurna in September very enjoyable for all trekkers. Tent Peak ascent is also doable because the slopes are not as muddy.

Tent Peak in October

The likelihood of precipitation decreases as you ascend. Only 6 millimetres of rain will fall at the higher altitudes in October. This statistic is about 7 times slower than the rainfall in Ghorepani or Chhomrong.In October, there will be 28 dry days and 2 days with less than 2 mm of precipitation. Additionally, there won't be any snowy days this month. The average temperature for the October trek to Annapurna hike is probably about 10 degrees making trekking conditions quite great. In October, you'll delight in the tent peak experience.

Tent Peak in November

Of all the months of the autumnal season, November is the driest. There is almost no possibility of precipitation this month. In terms of the amount of sunshine received in the Annapurna region, it is also the mildest month of autumn. However, once the winter season's impacts start to be felt around the end of November, you might feel a little chilly.

Tent Peak during Monsoon (June - August) and Winter (December – February)

While it is possible to reach the top of Tent Peak at any time of year, the monsoon and winter months are the most challenging. The course gets extremely muddy during the monsoon because of the unpredictable weather and abundant rain. However, it's not impossible. Even in the rainy months of June and July, Outfitter Nepal has seen visitors ascend the summit.

To secure your safety on the ice slope, you might need to pack additional equipment. Similar to summer, winter is harsh and merciless. Because of the mountains of snow and the bitter weather, the climb might be challenging. Therefore, spring and winter are the best seasons to climb Tent Peak in the Himalayas.

Tent Peak Ascent Difficulty

Tent Peak Climbing is a strenuous journey all around. You must trek in remote locations with no access to contemporary amenities. Sometimes the trail might become rocky and steep. You must walk for at least 6 to 7 hours each day. The Tent Peak's ascent does not require any technical climbing, but the altitude and snow-covered terrain can be difficult. Thus, make sure you are fit and healthy and prepare for your peak climbing.

Altitude Sickness during the Peak Climb Ascent

Tent Peak Climbing is a high-altitude journey that, if not executed correctly, can cause altitude sickness. The main cause of altitude sickness is improper bodily acclimatization to the higher altitude. This could sabotage your trip because, in the worst-case scenario, you would have to turn around and go home. Therefore, a well-planned itinerary is required for peak climbing’s success. With Outfitter Nepal, you receive a professionally created Tent Peak itinerary along with our undivided attention during the entire trip!

Food and Accommodation

During the Tent Peak journey, accommodation is available in teahouses in the villages. The tea house offers the most basic housing options with modest amenities. The accommodations include twin beds and a shared bathroom. Typically, there are only a few pieces of furniture in the small space. Similarly, while ascending, you spend the night in a tent, a new experience. The tents are excellent. Everyone in the group receives a bedroom tent, as well as a dining tent and a bathroom tent that is shared.

The package comes with three meals a day. Snacks are not provided in the package, but you are free to purchase them en route. There are foods on the menu that are Nepali, Tibetan, Continental, and Indian. A good selection of beverages and confectionery items are also available. All of the meals are prepared by the crew members while they are camping. We provide you with savoury and nourishing meals. Try Dal Bhat, while on your journey. It’s a traditional Nepali cuisine with rice, lentils and veggies, making it a perfect balanced diet.

Travel Insurance

Before partaking in any adventurous activities, we strongly advise you to obtain travel insurance. It is essential to buy insurance that will protect you in the event of an unforeseen calamity because peak climbing in Nepal entails some risks. You must, at the very least, have travel insurance that includes mountain rescue costs. Please carefully examine the general terms and conditions of your insurer. The following items should be covered, so make sure they are:

  1. Physical activity, such as trekking, mountaineering, or tourism, and
  2. The highest point that can be reached on the trek
  3. Helicopter evacuation in case of emergency.

You should be informed that all costs associated with the evacuation or medical care, as well as any outlays, are ultimately your responsibility.

FAQs

  • Q1. Do I need a visa to travel to Nepal?

    Yes, unless you have an Indian passport, you must get a Nepal visa. You can get a visa on arrival right at Kathmandu airport. Additionally, automated visa machines have made visa processing easier in Nepal since 2015! You can get your visa depending on your length of stay. The visa cost varies accordingly!

  • When you trek on the designated trail, you can readily fill water at the teahouses. As we go beyond the trekking trail for climbing the peak or for the expedition, you might not have a viable source of water to refill your bottle en route. You can fill up water from a nearby stream or river source. However, we recommend you carry some water purification tablets or SteriPen to purify water bottled from a natural source!

  • Our staff must get insured before embarking on climbing or expedition activities!

  • Yes!!! Naturally, food is always prepared hygienically, whether in a tent camp or a tea house lodge! The teahouse cooks have years of expertise feeding the visitors and have learned a trick or two to make their food delicious and hygienic! Likewise, at camp accommodation, we only hire the best cooks! So, you do not have to worry. Although, you can carry some water purification tablets if you bottle up water from unclaimed sources!

  • As you will be trekking for a few weeks, you are bound to encounter some physical discomfort, or in the worst-case scenario, you might get very sick. Our guides are skilled at first aid treatment of some minor physical issues. However, if your case gets severe, we can either descend to spend a few days in the lower altitude settlements or arrange an emergency helicopter evacuation service. Either way, we value your safety and well-being. So, we will proceed with your consent.

  • If you are a frequent visitor to Nepal's Himalayas, you can understand that the difficulty level varies from destination to destination. Likewise, peak climbing also depends on your stamina and the level of exercise you have undertaken before your journey. As we will travel in the high Himalayan sections, it can get stressful at times because of altitude and trekking duration. But, you must have a mental make-up that your journey can sometimes get pretty challenging!

  • We provide you with a water-proof duffel bag for your excursion. You can also carry a day pack or rucksack to keep all your essentials, such as energy bars, raincoats, cameras, chargers, and other electronic gadgets.

  • Our climbing guides, Sirdars and Sherpa, are highly skilled and professional in their field. They have decades' worth of experience trekking in the Himalayas. They are also trained for emergencies and have undergone first aid training. Likewise, they are also fluent in English, making it easier for you to communicate!

  • Every expedition requires significant physical exertion. Whether jogging, weightlifting, yoga, or team sports, give your best in any physical activity. It would help if you prepared for the high-altitude summit. Thus, we also advise you to take some intense training, both technical and material, for a couple of months.

  • A climb on a 6000-meter summit needs a certain level of physical and mental effort and some climbing components. It would help if you had excellent core strength and stamina. Thus, dedicate a couple of months to cardio-vascular workouts before climbing. You can also do some physical training. Cycling, jogging, or hiking are some great ways to stay fit. Likewise, participate in technical training, such as rock climbing or wall climbing.

  • The best way to acclimate to the changing altitude is to walk slowly. Similarly, keeping plenty of acclimatization days is also an excellent preventative measure. Likewise, while we hike at a higher altitude, we will have an overnight stay at a comparatively lower altitude. It is a traditional way to acclimatize to the altitude. We should also remember to stay hydrated regularly.

  • According to our experience, sleeping bags withstanding temperatures between -20 degrees Celsius and -35 degrees Celsius will be sufficient. If you have your own, we suggest bringing it along; if not, Outfitter Nepal will supply it during the trekking and climbing.

  • Yes, an Outfitter Nepal Representative will be there to welcome you outside of the Terminal Hall. He will be displaying your name written on Outfitter Nepal Sigh Board. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to the hotel.

  • You can go on a climbing trek solo and in a group. There’s no particular legality that restrains you from solo climbing in Nepal. However, a climbing guide, in any case, is a must.

  • It is better to purchase travel insurance before you depart to Nepal. When you buy your insurance, look for the policies that cover high-altitude helicopter evacuation services. Similarly, it should also cover medical care.

  • An excursion to a peak at 6,000 meters or higher will be led by a certified, experienced, and trained climbing Sherpa guide. Depending on the group size, the same climbing Sherpa guide will lead you to most of the trekking summits. Our Sherpa guides are also licensed trekking guides.

  • With climbing, you are taking a step higher than just trekking. For trekking, a basic level of fitness suffices. However, climbing or an expedition in the Himalayas takes a lot of will and strength. Especially for the expedition, you must have some summit experiences. It is also essential to carry out some stamina and rigor-building training for a few months (climbing) to even a few years (expedition). Undertaking a climbing or an expedition without previous experience is unsafe and may put you in danger in the Himalayas.

  • It is best to carry cash rather than rely on credit cards. They may not work in most cases.

  • In some villages, there are internet services readily available. Similarly, some villages also offer international calling. It is better to buy local Ncell or NTC SIM cards. These cards work up until a certain altitude.

  • You can charge your digital appliances by paying a small fee at the lodge's reception. Make sure to carry your adapter.

  • It's challenging to forecast the weather in the mountains. The days are often warm, and the atmosphere is more laid back at night. Although January and February will be colder, the days can be lovely and amiable if the sun shines. January, February, and December will all have snow. It's also crucial to ensure you can stay dry and comfortable in almost any circumstance. Prepare for the unexpected! The temperature could range from 20 degrees Celsius to -15 degrees Celsius.

  • In Nepal, mid-September to early December and mid-February to mid-May is the best times to embark on a climbing and expedition adventure.

  • You will be entertained with teahouses on the trekking trail. Similarly, you will have overnights at camping tents beyond trails and towards the summit. One tent is offered to two climbers. We will also install dining and kitchen tents for your food and comfort!

  • We offer luxury as well as standard accommodation services as per your choice. The service comes with breakfast. Similarly, during trekking, we provide standard accommodation with basic amenities. Likewise, we can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (which you need to return after the trip), but always having your sleeping equipment is a good idea. We usually provide single and double rooms as well as the occasional dormitory.

    Note: Common toilet facilities are available at Tea Houses/ Lodge. On the trekking, Camping Trekking: we provide you Tented Camp Accommodation in Camping Trekking.
