Tour Details

Our classic trekking tour in Nepal coupled with the ascent of the Dhampus Peak is a special class experience. On this trek you will experience the typical village life in Nepal, with all its traditions, to the most spectacular views of Nepal’s ice giants. Panoramic views of the highest mountains in the world, such as the Annapurna massif, the 8000’d Dhaulagiri and Manaslu and the holiest mountain in the world, the Machapuchare, make this trekking tour a unique experience. You cross the highest pass in the world, the Thorang La (5416 meters) and then walk through the deepest valley in the world, the Kali Gendaki. Muktinath, the pilgrimage site in the middle of the mountains on the border with Upper Mustang, will inspire you. The culmination, the ascent of the 6012 meter high Dhampus Peak gives the tour an expedition character and is the culmination of our tour. Climbing the technically-light Dhampus Peak offers stunning views of the Kali Gendaki Valley and the Annapurna Group.
