During this expedition you will get great close-up views of the following peaks: Tukuche peak, Dhaulagiri I (8163m), Nilgiri (6940m), Sita Chuchura (6611m), Tukche Peak (6920m), Thorong Peak (6484m), Tilicho peak (7134m), Yakawa Kan (6482m), Mukut Himal (6639m), Puth Hiunchuli (7246m), Tangu Peak (6197m), Tsarste (6347m) and Hongde peak (6556m). We will also explore the beautiful hamlets around the valley of Kaligandaki.
The trail to Dhampus Peak will follow the west edge which connects us to the Dhampus pass (5200m), where we will set our high camp. The next day we will summit Dhampus peak and thereby reach an altitude of 6,012 meters. Atop the summit we will get fantastic views of the Himalayas, and also feel the great achievement it is to have summitted a Himalayan 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.
