Thapa Peak

Trip Facts

Duration : 19 days

Difficulty Level : 5

Group Size : 2 to 10

Maximum Altitude : 6100 m

The ascent of the Thapa peak or Dhampus peak is done during the Dhaulagiri tour trek. We make this climb in the last days of the trek as we are well acclimated to the altitude.

There is no difficulty climbing Thapa Peak from the Hidden Valley camp. We go up a moraine at the beginning which is not very steep. The slopes are accentuated a little without exceeding the 30 °. Then a small chimney not stiff that with the help of a fixed rope makes it possible to join the final crest. It is not a thin ridge but rather a small plateau that leads to the summit of Thapa. It’s a good day because then we go down on Yak Karkha. But what a view of Nilgiri, the Tilicho. The whole trek is tented because there are no lodges on the course.

Difficulty climbing the Thapa peak

There is no particular technical difficulty for the ascent of Thapa Peak. The slopes do not exceed 30 °. The descent is long. So, on the day of the climb, you have to go back 10 hours.

Personal technical equipment for the ascent of Thapa Peak

In all our tours, you have a free day the day after your arrival in Nepal or the return of your hike. We offer a day of discovery of Kathmandu. Browse Bodhnath, Pashupatinath, Bhaktapur, Patan and the heart of the old city is always a change of scenery and a wonder.
