Dhampus (Thapa) Peak

20 Days

Dhampus (Thapa) peak is located in the Dhaulagiri region of Nepal and stands tall above the Kaligandaki River.  It is an interesting peak for climbers in the North-East of the big Dhaulagiri massif. It is an easy trekking peak to ascent for climbers. The overwhelming altitude differences between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges make Dhampus Peak a very exposed spot to observe the scenery from. Also known as Thapa peak, climbing offers stunning Himalayan views of the Annapurna region including Mt. Dhaulagiri 8167 m, Mt. Annapurna I 8091 m, Annpurna II 7739 m, Annapurna III 7555 m, Annapurna IV 7525 m, Annapurna south 7219 m, Hiunchuli 6441 m, Mt. Machhapuchhare (Fishtail) 6998 m,  Mt. Nilgiri 7040 m, Lamjung Himal 6988 m, Tukuche peak 6920 m, etc, and mixed culture with beautiful landscape.

Overview

The trail to Dhampus (Thapa) Peak will follow the west edge which connects us to the Dhampus pass (5200 m), where we will set our high camp. The next day we will summit the Dhampus peak and thereby reach an altitude of 6,012 meters. Atop the summit, we will get fantastic views of the Himalayas, and also feel a great achievement it is to have submitted a Himalayan peak.

The best season to go for this climbing expedition is Spring (Mar-May) and Autumn (mid-Sep to Mid Nov). About thirty different peaks can be witnessed from the top of the peak, making it a unique vantage spot to take up mountain vistas.
