Tent Peak is situated in Annapurna Sanctuary region, Tharpuchuli,Tent Peak is an most beautiful mountain. It includes Singu Chuli and acts as a central divider between the semicircles of peaks enclosing the Sanctuary. Tharpuchuli offers an interesting climb to the top and also offers a spectacular view of the Annapurna Mountains. The peak was nicknamed "Tent Peak "by Jimmy Roberts in 1956.

Tent peak climbing has always been an attractive challenge for the climbers. Not only the peak but also the approach trek to Annapurna base camp is ever popular for its great mountain scenery. The trek ascends through beautiful river valley of Modi Khola, passes through interesting Gurung villages, beautiful terrace farms and high waterfalls. The Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli) lies at the heart of Annapurna sanctuary with some other attractive peaks like Hiunchuli and singuchuli. The good thing about tent peak climbing is, it can be combined with Annapurna base camp trek.

The usual route to Tent Peak follows the north-west ridge to the summit. Several groups have also climbed the peak via the south-east as well as south-west face of the peak. Tent peak climbing is a challenging climb involving face climbing as well as sneak on knife edge ridges.

Tent peak offers an ideal opportunity for those who want to summit a Himalayan peak, but who may otherwise be hesitant to try a higher peak as a Himalayan debut. Besides providing an interesting climb combining glacier travel, face climbing and tiptoeing on knife ridges, a climb on this mountain offers an unparalleled view of the entire Annapurna Sanctuary a breathtaking circle of hanging glaciers and moraines surrounded by some of the highest peaks on earth. The normal route follows the North-West Ridge to the summit although the mountain has been climbed via the South-East Ridge as well as South-West Face.
