After the successful expedition of the Dhampus Peak by Austrian mountaineer Kurt Diemberger in 1960, Dhampus Peak climbing quickly gained attention from mountaineers and adventurers alike.

Moreover, being at an exposed spot due to the overwhelming altitude difference between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs, has allowed Dhampus Peak to be encircled by many eight and seven-meter mountains. This has greatly influenced the popularity of the Dhampus Peak climbing. Additionally, the trail of the Dhampus peak climbing allows you to trek into the dramatic temperate, subalpine and alpine landscapes. The culture and tradition of the higher Himalayan region during this expedition is something that will make your journey a lifelong memory.

Dhampus Peak Climbing Difficulty Level

Dhampus Peak climbing is considered to be a non-technical trekking peak with a PD(Peu Difficile) level of difficulty. Usually, this type of climb is slightly challenging in comparison to the F(easy) Level climb. The trail comprises some lower-angle snowy steep along with some rock climbing. Moreover, crossing the French and Dhampus passes increases the difficulty level of this expedition.

Since Dhampus Peak climbing is a thrilling adventure with hints of challenges, you will require basic climbing and mountaineering skills to conquer the summit. Moreover, the weather factors play a huge role in the difficulty level of the route. In case you are making this expedition in winter or early spring then the routes will be covered with snow. You will need an ice axe to make the way on the snow and crampons to move further with the journey. Similarly, novice mountaineers with good physical fitness can embark on this trek, but prior mountaineering experience will always come in handy in these climbing sessions.

Likewise, you will have to trek for a longer duration, which can test your mental resilience. However, once you make it to the summit, every hardship you face en route will feel worthwhile after being rewarded by the amazing beauty of the mountains.
