Dhampus Peak is a non-technical climbing peak just northeast of the Dhaulagiri massif. The Dhampus Peak is also known as the Thapa Peak. It is a perfect viewpoint for absorbing the mother of nature at its best. In addition, it provides awe-inspiring vistas of the snow-capped mountains. Dhampus Peak is 6012 meters high. Dhampus Peak is technically straightforward but requires no technical peak climbing skills.
We also explore the traditional villages of Kali Gandaki Valley. It offers ease and exquisite scenery for someone with an interest in viewing the topographic and ethnic variety of Nepal. So, The Kali Gandaki Valley has established itself as a significant destination.
The trail goes all the way to the famous Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek. Then, it goes through small villages, forests rich in flora and fauna, and exciting places. Then, the trail goes to an undulating path that connects us to Hidden Valley after the French pass. Finally, the trail leads to basecamp at 5600 meters, a few hours away from Hidden Valley.
It requires only a single day to reach a summit. Embark on the exquisite mountain scenery, soothe the mind, and awaken the senses while you are on top. The return trek can move towards Jomsom from Marpha before ending at Pokhara. Dhaulagiri Circuit with Dhampus Peak Climbing is exceptionally recommendable as an excellent beginning climbing possibility for aspiring mountaineers.
