Annapurna Circuit Trek

Small party of two looking to organize a 9 day climb of Thapa Peak (Dhampus Peak) from Oct 31 to Nov 8. This will be a diversion from the A.C. after going over Thorung La Pass so some acclimatization will have been achieved. We will be launching from either Marpha or Jomsom. We hope to add 2 – 4 more climbers – maximum party count will be six. Expenses of independent guide, permits and porters will be shared equally (pro rata). The climb will be a streamlined operation – no cook or kitchen. Must bring you own food (freeze dried and/or dehydrated).

Climbing diversion:
Oct 31 Climb Day 1: Marpha to Alubari (3900m) 8,700’ to 12,800’ = 4,100’ – Tent
Nov 1 Climb Day 2: Alubari to ????????? (4600m). 12,800’ to 15,100’ = 2,300’ – Tent
Nov 2 Climb Day 3: Rest and acclimation and weather
Nov 3 Climb Day 4: Trek to Dhampus Base Camp (5100m). 15,100’ to 16,700’ = 1,600’ – Tent
Nov 4 Climb Day 5: Trek to High Camp (5600m). 16,700’ to 18,400’ = 1,700’ – Tent
