Dhampus peak climbing. hampus Peak lies North-East of the big Dhaulagiri massif. It is in terms of climbing technicalities an easy mountain to ascent.

The 3500 meter ascent from Tukuche, where our climb starts, makes you feel having gone really high. The normal route to Dhampus Peak follows the west-ridge, which connects Dhampus Pass(5200m), where Beautiful sunset in the mountain!our highest camp is placed, with the summit. For acclimatized people we have a 6-day schedule starting from the High Plains Inn in Tukuche. For unacclimatized individuals we offer various acclimatization programs, which each take an additional 4 days. An ideal combination is the trek over the 5400 meter high Thorung Pass. Though this expedition exceeds the 6000 meter frontier, no technical climbing skills are required. The use of crampons depends on snow conditions. This means any experience in walking on snow/ice is advisable. As there are no steep pitches and no glacier traverses at all, we won’t be roped together. Hence knowledge about knots and rescue operations are also not required. Good physical health and mental perseverance necessary.
