MT. Thorong Peak Expedition

MT. Thorong Peak Expedition

(44 NIGHTS/ 45 DAYS )

overview

Mt. Thorong (6,145m / 20,160ft.) is a less popular expedition peak in the Annapurna region. The Thorong La, a pass at an altitude of 5,416m, is more popular then the peak itself. The beautiful peak is situated south of the Thorong La between Tetang and Muktinath. Climbers can choose to visit the Muktinath temple along with Thorong Peak Climbing. The climb offers spectacular scenery of the Gurung villages, and the Annapurna massif from the summit of the peak.

The Thorong Peak climbing trekking in Nepal begins at Bhulbhule and ends at Jomsom before flying to Pokhara the next day. The rhododendron forest is another major attraction of this 6,000m trek. Climbers do not need previous climbing experience to summit the Mt. Thorong. The trek would include passing by the famous Thorong La as the Thorong is the first mountain to the south of the pass. Trekkers get to visit the nearby villages and enjoy tea and refreshments at the teahouses. This would also help with acclimatization. Climbers just need basic climbing training for the trek and should be physically fit with a high level of energy for the 45 Days Thorong Peak Climbing in 2019 & 2020 tour.
