This outstanding trek includes fascinating trekking traisl along an ascent to Tent peak [5663m.], also known as Tharpu Chuli. Tent peak is the second most climbed trekking peak in Nepal after Island peak in the Khumbu region. Other major highlight of this trip is an 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 amphitheater, 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 bamboos and rhododendrons. 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.
