Tharpu Chuli, situated at the heart of Annapurna Sanctuary, is an attractive mountain which offers not only enjoyable climbing but also serves as one of the outstanding viewpoints of the Annapurna massive. Despite its lowly magnitude, the summit offers a superb panorama of Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Annapurna III, Annapurna V, Machhapuchhare, Hiunchuli, Singu Chuli and Gangapurna. The peak can be approached from several routes: North-West Ridge, South - East Ridge and South - West Face.

We further cross the glacier and reach the foot of the fluted wall which separates Tharpu Chuli and Singu Chuli. We further climb easy snow slopes and then more steep climb requires to gain the board ridge. From the ridge we climb steeply on a knife-edged ridge which finally leads to the summit.
