Rate Trip


Tukuche Peak Expedition, standing at 6920 meters, is situated within the renowned Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges in the western part of Nepal. Positioned between the Annapurna Massif and Mt. Dhaulagiri I, Tukuche Peak overlooks the world’s deepest Kali Gandaki Gorge and a beautiful hidden valley. While the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri regions attract numerous trekkers annually, Tukuche Peak itself is relatively less climbed.

The summit of Tukuche Peak offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Annapurna range, Mt. Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak, and various other snow-capped peaks. The trek to the summit involves traversing challenging trails such as Thapa Pass, French Pass, Italian Base Camp, and Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Due to its remote location, Tukuche Peak sees fewer trekking groups, resulting in a less crowded and serene experience compared to other trekking routes.

Despite its towering elevation, Tukuche Peak is considered an easier climb with minimal risk factors, making it a suitable choice for those seeking a low-risk trekking peak.

After meeting you at the airport, we will drive you to your accommodation. We will also provide you with a briefing on your trek. You're free to tour the city for the remainder of the day.

Embark on your trek with our dedicated preparation day, meticulously designed for an unforgettable journey. Explore local attractions, finalize permits, and receive essential briefings from experienced guides. Utilize this time to fine-tune your gear, understand emergency procedures, and recharge before immersing yourself in breathtaking landscapes.

This day involves a scenic 5-hour journey from Kathmandu to the delightful town of Pokhara, situated alongside Fewa Lake. Pokhara, renowned as a tourist's paradise, presents a diverse array of natural and cultural marvels, including lakes, caves, and temples significant to both Buddhist and Hindu traditions, all set against awe-inspiring mountain panoramas. Upon arrival in Pokhara, you will be transferred to your hotel for an overnight stay.

Following breakfast, we will embark on an early morning scenic flight from Pokhara to Jomsom. Serving as a crucial hub for Mustang and Upper Mustang Treks, Jomsom features an airstrip, tea houses, and various services. Upon landing at the Jomsom, we commence our trek along a relatively straightforward path towards Marpha, famously recognized as 'The Apple Garden.' Subsequently, we begin a steep ascent until reaching the expansive fields of Yak Kharka.

Ensuring proper acclimatization is crucial at higher altitudes to prevent potential mental and physical illnesses associated with altitude sickness. This is especially vital for achieving our goal of reaching the summit of Tukuche Peak. Consequently, today will be dedicated to a day of rest at Yak Kharka, providing the necessary time for acclimatization. Within Yak Kharka, there are a few excellent hiking options designed to facilitate the acclimatization process.

Following a well-deserved day of rest at Yak Kharka, our path inclines gradually as we enter the Kali Gandaki Valley, recognized as the deepest gorge globally. The ascent persists as we move towards crossing Dhampus Pass at an altitude of 5,240 meters, alternatively named 'Thapa' Pass. Descending from the summit, our trail leads over a moderate snow slope, guiding us toward the Hidden Valley, where we will set up camp for the night.

Having now surpassed the 5,000-meter mark above sea level, it is important to maintain both physical and mental well-being. To facilitate acclimatization and exploration, we will take a break at Hidden Valley. This location provides various hiking opportunities, with the most recommended option being an ascent to the western ridge. From this vantage point, we can enjoy breathtaking views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri, and the breathtaking mountain valleys. After a fulfilling day of hiking, we return to Hidden Valley for overnight camping.

Following breakfast, we prepare for a relatively short day of trekking. The trail ascends gradually, leading us through rugged alpine vegetation. Given the strenuous nature of the climb, taking periodic breaks becomes essential for restoring energy. We continue our trek until reaching a favorable camping site at an elevation of 5,640 meters, where our Base Camp will be established. The Sherpa team swiftly sets up the camps and initiates preparations for establishing camps at even higher altitudes.

Over the course of 11 days, we engage in climbing training practices while ensuring proper acclimatization. Our dedicated Sherpa team handles tasks such as setting up camps, providing nutritious meals, and fixing routes for the summit ascent. Following the guidance of experienced climbing experts, we undertake a gradual climb with multiple camps set up above the base camp. Weather conditions play a crucial role in determining the timing of our summit climb attempt. Fully equipped and acclimatized, we navigate various technical climbing sections to successfully reach the summit of Tukuche Peak. The reward includes breathtaking up-close views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountain ranges and surrounding high peaks.

After a successful summit and a brief stay at the summit, we descend along the same route to return to the Base Camp.

Having successfully reached the summit of Tukuche Peak, we commence our descent by following the same trail in reverse, descending downhill for several hours. During this return journey, we will be treated to magnificent views of high mountain valleys and the towering peaks in the vicinity. Our destination for the overnight stay is Hidden Valley, where we will set up camp once again.

Departing from Hidden Valley, our journey involves retracing the same trail, ascending a moderate snow slope towards the Dhampus Pass. Successfully navigating the pass, we initiate a steep descent into the Kali Gandaki Valley, followed by an extensive traverse across the snow, typically spanning around four hours, before descending to Yak Kharka.

The final day of our trek commences from Yak Kharka, as we follow the primary trail, descending over an extended period to reach the village of Marpha. Subsequently, the trail offers a delightful and moderate walk leading us back to Jomsom.

Our day begins with an early morning scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara. Upon arrival in Pokhara, you will be transported to the hotel. The remainder of the day will be dedicated to sightseeing and exploration in and around Pokhara. Engaging in activities such as boating on Fewa Lake, visiting sacred caves and waterfalls, and exploring the city are excellent ways to make the most of your time in Pokhara.

Following breakfast, we embark on a drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu, a journey lasting approximately four to five hours. En route, we have the chance to observe the daily routines of local communities, witnessing their survival activities. As we traverse through various market towns and villages, the drive offers glimpses into the local way of life. Upon reaching Kathmandu, you are welcome to explore the bustling shopping streets of Thamel. In the evening, we celebrate the successful completion of our Tukuche Peak Expedition with a final group meal.

We look forward to welcoming you back after we've seen you off at the airport for your next journey!
