Dhampus Peak (6012m)

Dhampus Peak (6012m) :

The Highest Trekking Peak 6,654m of Nepal

Dhampus Peak (6012m) : Climbing the trekking peak of Nepal
(Non-technical, glacier-free climb into the voids above th`1`e Kali Gandaki valley)
Dhampus peak climbingDhampus Peak lies North-East of the big Dhaulagiri massif. It is in terms of climbing technicalities an easy mountain to ascent. The overwhelming altitude differences between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges make Dhampus Peak a very exposed spot to observe the scenery from. Having Tukuche Peak (6920m) and Dhaulagiri (8167m) spectacularly near you enjoy the feeling of being part of the extreme altitudes of the Himalayas. The biggest mountain range in the world with uninterrupted heights between seven and eight thousand meters, containing Annapurna -1, 2, 3 & 4, Annapurna-South, The Nilgiris and Tilicho Peak tower above the horizon in the South.

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..
