DHAMPUS PEAK CLIMBING

Have you ever dreamed and imagined standing on top of a mountain in the snow - and surrounded by other snow-covered peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges? Well, here is an opportunity to do just that and literally look down on the world. Dhampus Peak is also known as Thapa Peak and takes you through the high altitude Thapa Pass (5244m) and then on to Dhampus Peak (6012m). This is an incredible journey in the Upper Kali Gandaki (river and gorge). Sherpa Expedition Teams will safely lead you to the summit where you can see more than 30 other snow-capped peaks, and extremely close-up views of Tukuche (6920m) and Dhaulagiri 1 (8167m). There will be plenty of time for you to acclimatize before ascending Dhampus Peak. This is essential at these altitudes to prevent altitude sickness.

The Annapurna and Mustang regions are rich in flora and fauna and you will see a glorious display of Nepal’s national emblem, the rhododendron tree with its striking white, pink and red blossoms while trekking through the lower regions of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. 

Sherpa Expedition Teams (Est.1977) will take care of all permits, meals and accommodation on this climbing adventure. We have an excellent reputation in this business and will safely ensure you reach the summit.

ITINERARY

Expand All

Sherpa Expedition & Trekking staff will be there to greet you at Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel, followed by a briefing covering information, dos and don’ts of your trek. Your safety and comfort are paramount.

Our journey begins with a 6-7 hour drive toward the Pokhara Valley and its beautiful Phewa Tal (lake) and then checking in to your hotel close to Phewa Tal. There is plenty to see and do along Lakeside with its many shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.

Today we head off from Pokhara towards Beni, a three-hour scenic drive before starting our three-four trek from Beni Tatopani passing through cultivated fields before reaching Tatopani Village where we can take a dip in the therapeutic hot pools. We will stay overnight here.

Today we will take the trail alongside the Myagdi Khola (river) and after six hours reach Ghasa where we stay the night.

Today we have a six hour trek ahead of us as we head to Larjung Village where we will stay overnight.

A five hour trek today takes us through the quiet and peaceful valley to Marpha where we will stay the night.

A five hour trek today takes us to Yak Kharka where we stay overnight.

Today we leave Yak Kharka and head to a much higher altitude to Dhampus Pass where we will stay the night.

In order to reach the summit around lunchtime we will be up real early. The higher we climb the more stunning the views over a vast white landscape of enormous peaks. This is an excellent opportunity to snap photographs of the many 30 plus soaring peaks – especially close-up views of Tukuche (6920m) and Dhaulagiri 1 (8167m). We will then head down to Kalopani where we will stay overnight.

We rapidly descend to Tatopani where we can relax in the hot pools and after sleep soundly here overnight.

Our trekking days are over as we take a scenic drive back to Pokhara where we will stay near Lakeside with many bars and restaurants where you can reminisce with friends over a drink and talk about you trek and climbing adventure to Dhampus Peak.

Today we head back on a 6 to 7 hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime!

Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!
