Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) lies at an altitude of 5,663m and is set over the Annapurna Valley standing in front of the most renowned peaks on the earth named Machhapuchhre which means fishtail. Tharpu Chuli is occasionally acknowledged as 'Tent Peak' because of its form. The way we go up is taking up the North West point, which holds snow and ice climbing risks at Alpine PD or Scottish Grade II. You will enjoy the mountainous setting’s awesome sight including the two gigantic peaks- Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m) and Mt. Annapurna (8091 m).

Vital information

Visa:

The most convenient (and less expensive) is to have a visa on arrival at Kathmandu airport. To do this, please bring a photo Passport size and Cash small bills.

  • 25 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 15-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 40 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 30-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 100 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a visa from 31 to 90 days (multiple entries).

The visa is free for children under 10 years. For stays of less than 3 days, free visas no longer exist (take a visa "15 days").When you take your visa on arrival, check that the "sticker" is properly affixed: without it, your visa is not valid

Travel Insurance:

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.
