Annapurna area in the mid western region of Nepal is considered most scenic and culturally diversed place in the Nepal Himalaya.
To begin our Annapurna Instructions, we assemble in Kathmandu and head to cliffs at the Royal Forest Reserve near Balaju in Kathmandu to learn basic rock climbing skills.
For the instructions in snow and ice climbing, our destination is the Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) 5500m/18045ft area in the Annapurna Sanctuary.
From Kathmandu, we drive to Nayapool - the trail head for Tent Peak and then trek at a leisurely pace following Modi Khola to its source in the Annapurna Sanctuary to arrive at the Tent Peak base camp 4877m/16000ft in 5 days.
The Raksi peak and the level glacier below the west flank of Tharpu Chuli provides an ideal site for snow, ice climbing and crevasse rescue instructions.
After the 3 day instructions on snow and ice climbing techniques is completed, we put all of our newly acquired skills together for an ascent of Tent Peak! Despite of its moderate height, Tent peak demands a combination of challenging climbing skills.
