Dhampus peak is easier climbing trekking peak in Nepal Dhampus Peak lies North-East of the great Dhaulagiri massif in the Annapurna region. The overwhelming altitude differences between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges make Dhampus Peak climbing a very exposed to experience the climbing as well as landscape trekking. On climbing of Dhampus peak, you would pass through various places that touch human civilization as well. The popular Dhampus peak climbing is done through beautiful countryside inhabited by highly diversified communities and culture. It is regarded to be one of the most challenging peaks for having summit, therefore, you need to be physically fit and mentally prepared. Climbing Dhampus peak would always be full of fun and entertainment.

The Dhampus Peak climbing takes you through an ever-changing landscape of rice fields, misty forests and tiny villages. Starting out at Nayapul, we encounter sub-tropical heat, pretty villages, neatly terraced rice fields and colorful Rhododendron forest. The panorama of prominent Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri peaks from the Poon Hill view point [3190m] above Ghorepani are the most spectacular mountain escapes on Earth observed during peak climbing of Dhampus. This mesmerizes with heavenly view of sunrise and golden color views of Annapurna ranges. The spectacular panorama stretches from Dhaulagiri I (8167m), Machhapuchhare, Annapurna I (8091m), Lamjung Himal and other small Himalayas pour you their beauty at Tatopani.
