Rooted in the northeast of Kathmandu, Dhampus Peak, also known as Thapa Peak, towers in the midst of the glorious Himalayan trail. It is situated in between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range offering us with the views of wide varieties of vegetation and landscapes making each spot open to observe the scenic beauty of this region. The peak climbing journey offers an adventure, a cultural excursion and scenic escapade to this beautiful region.   

Dhampus Peak Climbing journey starts from Darbang after a scenic flight to Pokhara from Kathmandu. On our way, we will acclimatize often to the increasing height and avoid altitude sickness. It provides the mountaineering enthusiasts an opportunity to explore around the less popular off-beaten trails of Dhaulagiri Circuit. On summiting the Dhampus peak we will see nearly 30-40 peaks lying in between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna range. With the close views of Tukuche Peak (6920m) and Dhaulagiri (8167m), we can relish in the journey and scenic pleasure that we are offered. We can get a clear view of the whole Kali Gandaki region from the top. It is a great peak climbing option in the Annapurna region offering us with the stunning Himalayan views of the Annapurna regions. Along with the natural beauty, the cultural experience during the journey is magnificent as well. The Buddhist faith of the inhabitants along with heart-warming hospitality adds more flavor to the travel. The Dhampus peak climbing requires no prior technical climbing experience but a good physical fitness along with the desire to climb is mandatory.
