Dhampus Peak lies northeast 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 makes Dhampus Peak a very exposed spot to observe the scenery from. Having Tukuche Peak (6920m) and Dhaulagiri (8167m) spectacularly near you is very exciting feeling of being part of the extreme altitudes of the Himalayas. The biggest mountain range in the world with uninterrupted heights between seven to eight thousand meters, including Annapurna - I, II, III and IV 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 our high camp is placed for summit attempt. For acclimatized people we have a 6-day schedule starting from the High Plains Inn in Tukuche. For un acclimatized individuals we offer various acclimatization programs, which each take an additional 4 days. An ideal combination is the trekking over the Thorong La 5416m pass en route  the world famous Annapurna Circuit trek. Though this expedition exceeds the 6000-meter frontier, no technical climbing skills are required. The use of crampons depends on snow conditions meaning experience in walking on snow/ice a must. Because, nothing is taken to be granted for the sake of safety.

As there are no steep pitches and no glacier traverses, the climbers are not roped together. Hence,  knowledge about knots and rescue operations are also not essential. Good physical health and mental perseverance essential though.
