Enjoy spectacular views of the Himalayan mountains as you embark on this 15-day trek to Dhampus Peak. The climb is non-technical, light on logistics, and includes various options for different abilities.
What to Expect
Dhampus Peak lies northeast of the big Dhaulagiri massif, is an easy mountain to ascend and one of the best places from which to observe the stunning scenery of the Himalayas.
Our climb starts in Tukuche, from where you will ascend 3500 meters to the peak. The route to Dhampus Peak follows the west-ridge, which connects Dhampus Pass (5200m), where we will set up our high camp.
