Dhampus peak Climbing
Dhampus Peak climbing (6,012 m.) is one of the non technical and easy trekking peaks lying north –east of Dhaulagiri massif of Annapurna region in Nepal. by virtue of the overwhelming altitude difference between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massif Dhampus peak (6,012 m.) is beautifully exposed offering the most spectacular views of some of the towering mountain ranges along with some eight thou sander Annapurna I,II,III and IV, Annapurna south, Dhaulagiri (8167m) and Tilicho Peak tower above the horizon towards the south of Dhampus peak .
We drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara for about 6 hours. From Pokhara we drive to Nayapul from where our actual trek starts heading towards the classic Annapurna round trekking trail. While trekking we pass through the rhododendron blooming from pink to red and pine forest, mountainous landscape, delightful Gurung villages, river valleys, alpine meadows, and visit the famous sunrise and mountain view point of the region offering panoramic views of Annapurna Himalayan range. From Tukuche (6920m), our actual climb starts, which make you, feel high. Normally we climb Dhampus peak from the west ridge, which connects Dhampus Pass (5200m), where we set our high camp and summit the peak. Normally we don't use our climbing tools like ice axe and crampons but it depends up on the weather and snow condition. Best season to summit in this peak is during April to June and September to November.
