Overview

Dhampus Peak (6012m) is situated northeast of the gigantic Dhaulagiri massif. The peak is easy to climb and does not require any technical climbing skills. Dhampus Peak is also known as a 'Thapa Peak'.

Dhampus Peak 6012m is known as Thapa Peak. located in the middle of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan range, the peak is technically straightforward and offers a breathtaking perspective of the entire upper Kali Gandaki. From the summit, we have a sublime perspective of more than thirty unique peaks among Annapurna and Dhaulagiri with the nearby view of Tukuche and Dhaulagiri. Dhampus Peak Climbing with us is an excellent opportunity for climbers wanting to accomplish the less achieved Dhampus Peak while investigating the Annapurna and Mustang area’s rich verdure and faunas.

Dhampus Peak can be submitted either by short course by means of Jomsom or by following the whole Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek. Dhampus Peak climbing trail takes after a few conventional towns, rhododendron woods crosses various walks with the staggering perspectives of Himalayas until the point that compass to Dhampus Peak Base Camp. We will have multi-day safe acclimatization, and after that, we take after a trail on a snow-cleared incline to a high camp located at 5600m height. From high camp, we proceed straight up, take after the snow peak to overcome Dhampus 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.

Most visitors will be able to obtain a visa upon arrival at the airport. Please ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months from the date of your arrival, beginning with the date that you enter the country. You should also bring an extra passport-sized photo of yourself. Visas-on-arrival costs $40.00 USD and are valid for a period of 15 days; you can also obtain a 30-day visa for $50.00 USD.

    TRAVEL INSURANCE

    Travel insurance is an important safeguard for any visitor trekking in the mountains of Nepal. While Alpine Ramble Treks does not sell travel insurance packages, we would be happy to recommend some of our favorite providers. When you purchase a travel insurance policy, be sure that it covers the following contingencies: emergency helicopter evacuation, medical treatment and evacuation, repatriation, trekking, and climbing. You may need to purchase a higher tier of travel insurance in order to have these activities covered at a high altitude. For climbing, we recommend securing insurance to cover your trekking/climbing activities up to 6,000 -7000 meters. Fortunately, travel insurance policies are easy to purchase online, and you can compare coverage between packages quickly and easily. Trekking under the protection of travel insurance will guarantee your peace of mind and protect you in the unlikely event that you need to file a claim.

    Fitness and Experiences

    For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.

    Food

    Trekking at altitude requires a lot of energy. We recommend you bring your own healthy snack foods to snack on along the trek.
    Accommodation
    In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels, and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp, your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis.

    During the climb, your guide will have access to current weather conditions.
