Dhampus Peak, also called Thapa Peak, is technically least difficult trekking peak. It is conical in shape and snow- covered. It is situated in the north-east between the Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri massif separated by the Kaligandaki River gorge.
The trail to the summit follows the west ridge through Dhaulagiri Base Camp, French Pass to Hidden Valley and after the summit, it descends towards Jomsom and Muktinath. Much of the trekking route meanders through snow and glaciers. From Dhampus base camp we reach to the high point of our trek, cross French Pass (5,360 m), keep going to the hidden Valley. From the summit, we will see as many as thirty different mountains and keep us absorbed in mountain panoramic view around. After peak summit, we descend to the upper Kali Gandaki Valley in Jomsom. From here we take the morning flight to Pokhara. One extra day is reserved for leisure in Pokhara. Next day we leave for Kathmandu and conclude our Thapa peak expedition.
No technical climbing skills are required in exception to acclimatization. Those who are looking for climbing an easy trekking peak in the Annapurna region, Thapa peak is a perfect choice. However, climbing experience on snow and ice is a must.
