This outstanding trek includes fascinating trekking trail along an ascent to Tent peak [5663m.], also known as Tharpu Chuli. Tent peak is one of the most climbed trekking peak in Nepal. Other major highlight of the trip is exclusive exploration of Annapurna sanctuary. The summit of Tent peak offers a stunning 360 degrees panoramic view of the surrounding Annapurna massif. The trek starts from Phedi after a 45 minute drive from Pokhara. Further on. The trail takes us to the Annapurna Sanctuary, the most spectacular high mountain amphitheatre, through charming Gurung villages and rhododendron forests.
During our trekking venture, we witness a variety of landscapes sprawling across sub-tropical forest, terraced rice paddies, pleasant ridges, grassy farmland and forests of bamboo and rhododendron. On our return from the Sanctuary, the trail follows an alternative route, turning westwards to follow a high ridge which eventually leads to Ghorepani and the Kali Gandaki Valley. From Poon Hill above Ghorepani, we experience the breathtaking views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges before heading back to Pokhara on the shores of Phewa Tal. Finally, we take a flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
This trip is tailor made for any one who is physically fit and has adventure spirit. After proper acclimatization, this trip can be undertaken at any time of the year except monsoon [July & August].
