Overview

Dhampus Peak lies northeast of big Dhaulagiri massif. It is in terms of climbing technicalities an easy mountain to ascent. The overwhelming altitude differenced between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range makes Dhampus peak a very exposed spot to observe the scenery from which you can enjoy with Dhaulagiri ( 8167m), Tucuche Peak (6920m) and others mountains. The biggest mountain ranges in the world with an uninterrupted height between seven 7 and 8 thousand meters. Containing Annapurna 1,2,3,4, Annapurna south, the Nilgiris and Tilicho Peak tower above the horizon in the south. The 3500m ascent from Tukuche, where our climbing starts, makes you feel having gone really high. The normal peak to Dhampus peak follows the west ridge, which connects Dhampus Pass (5200m), where our highest camp is placed with the summit. The expedition exceeds the 6000m frontier; no technical climbing skills are required. The use of crampons depends on snow conditions.
