Thorong peak (6,144 m) climbing is one of the rewarding and technically difficult peaks climbing in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Thorong peak is a beautiful snow peak standing to the south of the Thorung La in Annapurna region. This peak climbing is the excellent combination of the classic Annapurna round trek passing through the high pass of Thorong La Pass and rewarding Thorong peak climbing. Thorung La peak climbing was opened recently for the adventurers after Nepal government derestricted the trek to Manang valley.
Thorong Peak standing at 6100 meters is the nice snow mountain on the left, just to the south of the Thorung La, seen just past the Gya La (3970m) between Tetang and Muktinath. The trail from Tetang descends from the Gya La (3970m) and eventually joins the main trail from Manang to Ranipauwa. Muktinath is visible in the lower right. This mountain is the shortest possibility to gain a 6000 m-peak while doing the famous trekking around Annapurna. The highest point of this Trekking is Thorong La (pass), 5416 m. From this pass it is the first mountain to the south.

We strongly recommend the purchase of travel cancellation insurance to protect you from the unexpected. You aren’t likely to think of it now, but people do get ill, break a bone, have a family emergency or get assigned to a last minute business trip. If you are in remote areas, please note that emergency rescue & evacuation can be very expensive.
We also strongly urge you to consider rescue and evacuation insurance if your own policy does not provide the coverage needed. Services available may include, but are not limited to, helicopter evacuation, medical care, etc.
If you choose not to purchase insurance, you assume full responsibility.
