Dhampus Peak Climbing is an excellent opportunity for climbers wanting to achieve the less-summited Dhampus Peak while exploring the Annapurna and Mustang region's rich flora and fauna.

Located between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan range, Dhampus Peak (6019 m) is also known as Thapa Peak. The peak is technically straightforward and offers a splendid view of the whole upper Kali Gandaki. From the summit, we’ll have a magnificent view of over thirty different peaks with close views of Tukuche and Dhaulagiri.

The expedition starts after a day drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. Dhampus Peak can be summited either by short route via Jomsom or by following the entire Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek. Dhampus Peak climbing trail follows several traditional villages, cuts through rhododendron forests and crosses numerous passes with stunning views of the Himalayas. We will have a day safe acclimatization in Dhampus Peak base camp and then we follow a trail on a snow paved slope to a high camp situated at 5600m altitude. From high camp, we continue straight up and follow the snow crest to conquer Dhampus Peak. Return safely back to Jomsom via Yak Kharka and fly to Pokhara to end this awesome peak climbing and trekking experience in the Himalayas.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
