Tharpu Chuli (5500 m / 18045 ft)
This is short trek into the Annapurna Sanctuary, a spectacular cirque stuck right in the heart of the Annapurna Range surrounded by a collection of Himalayan giants. This is the best trip for climbing a peak in the Himalayas in the shortest amount of time, an excellent introduction to climbing in the Nepal Himalaya. From Kathmandu, you can travel to Pokhara from where the trek begins. Along the trek you will be travelling through a variety of villages, climates and cultures. A bit shorter than the Circle Annapurna trek, with equally amazing views of Machupachare, Annapurna I, II, III, and IV, Angapurna, and Hiunchuli. While in the Sanctuary you can attempt Tent Peak, a technically easy, yet challenging 19,000 ft. peak.
