Dhampus Peak Climbing is the most famous peak climbing adventure holiday in Dhaulagiri region of western Nepal. This magnificent peak rises as a giant shoulder of glistening ice and snow. Dhaulagiri is rarely found in the region and the surrounding valleys and villages are intact and unchanged for generations. According to various trekking maps available in the local market in Thamel of Nepal, the height of Dhampus peak is 6,012 meters, 6,035 meters and 6,060 meters. Of course this is a high grade climbing and hiking route. Thirty different mountain ranges can be seen from the peak, making it an unparalleled Himalayan panorama point. No climbing experience is required to climb Dhampus Peak other than acclimatization.

Famous for its hilly airports, Nepal offers many domestic flights giving you access to all parts of the country. When there is less time in Nepal, it is better to take a local flight to avoid long journeys. Mountain weather is often unpredictable, but it’s best to add one or two buffer days after your trek to adjust the time for flight delays. If you are planning an international flight around one of your domestic flights from a mountainous area, add at least one day of buffer travel days to your itinerary if possible. We will meet again in the evening for a farewell dinner at one of the best Nepali restaurants in the city, where we will be eager to hear your feedback about the trip.
Here is information about possible one-day activities. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the main attractions of the Kathmandu Valley are three Durbar Square (Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur) and four temples and stupas (Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, Pashupatinath Temple and Changu Narayan Temple). If you want to walk all day (8 hours), you can visit any four places [Boudhanath, Pashupatinath Temple, Changu Narayan Temple and Bhaktapur Durbar Square] or [Swayambhunath, Bungmati, Patan Durbar Square and Kathmandu Durbar Square] in one day.
