Dhampus Peak is the conical peak on the northern side of Thapa (Dhampus) Pass. It is known as the Thapa Peak. It is generally found snow covered. The peak lies at north east side of Dhaulagiri Massif. We can feel the height in between Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri. The Upper Kali Gandaki view is awesome while climbing up to the peak.

Dhampus Peak is a non-technical peak and it has easy ascent. We do not need any prior climbing experiences. Proper acclimatization is more than enough to scale the Dhampus Peak. We follow the west ridge which connects the Dhampus Pass (5200 m), where there is a High Camp. Dhampus Peak Climbing offers breathtaking view of Tukuche Peak, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Tilicho Peak, Nilgiri South and North.
