Tukuche Peak a wonderful mountain located in front of Dhaulagiri I and Annapurna range on the other side divided by the great Kali Gandaki George.

The Summit of Tukuche Peak offers stunning mountain vistas including entire Annapurna Range, Nilgiri and the beautiful villages of Marpha, Syang, and Jomsom.
We attempt the summit of Tukuche Peak (6920m) about 4/5 days preparation in its Base Camp and High Camp via North East Ridge. Before attempting for climbing Tukuche Peak, the trek toward the peak made through the deepest George of Kali Gandaki using Pokhara- Beni unique drive and Tatopani (the hot spring)-Ghasa-Tukuche trekking trail of Annapurna conservation area. Magnificent mountain views and valleys viewed during the trekking and Peak climbing. Tukuche firstly climbed by a Swiss Team in 1969. Due to its remote location and the seriousness of the terrain the area seldom visited by commercial trekking and climbing groups. The Tukuche Peak is in Low Category in the sense of Risk and Technicality.
