A climber needs to be familiar with the use of harness and crampons. Basic level of mountaineering skills and excellent physical condition are the prerequisites. But the trek Round Dhaulagiri  is accessible to all good walkers, 14 consecutive walking days with a maximum altitude of French pass (5360m).

In Nepal, most of the circuits of trekking occur in altitude. The circuits having at least one night or more in more than 3 500 m of altitude are qualified of trekking in High Mountain. This altitude can generate the symptom of acute mountain sickness. The treatment to always apply is to descent (go back) as quickly as possible to a lower altitude.

Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a syndrome of suffering, linked to a rise too fast in high altitude, at the absence of acclimation and to a personal sensitivity more or less important. Its symptoms are headache, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, general fatigue, tiredness, dizziness, balance disorder, dyspnoea and of the loss of appetite.

It is therefore a frequent disease affecting people in good health but exposed to an extreme environment of high altitude. Its incidence is variable, but increases very rapidly with altitude; it would be 15% to 2 000 meters of altitude and 60% to 4 000 meters.

This evil usually appears in the 4 to 12 hours following the arrival in altitude: it is regressing with the acclimation and disappears immediately to the descent.

Round Dhaulagiri Thapa Peak is great trek in Nepal

5
Excellent

We had a great time with Nepal Authentic Trek and the team. They took care of us every need. Climbing Thapa Peak was the most difficult thing i have done in my life. Today, i’am very happy to say you that, if you have a projet a climb 6000m mountain in Nepal, go through Nepal Authentic trek & expedtion. They have an extraordinarily high success rate for summiting and the reason for this is because they are INCREDIBLE. During our trip, the entire staff and porters was amazing.  It was always a very positive atmosphere.

 

I will like to mention at least few guys who were so important and made our adventure 6000m possible. First our guide Pasang, Cook Nima, all the porters and Dorjee who advised us this remarkable trek and answered all our questions. Dorjee took a lot of time for us, already when finding out which mountain we want to climb. He also helped us with finding and borrowing the right equipment for our expedition. Thank you one again and hope to see you soon. Next expedition Amadablam !

A magnificent ascent of Thapa Peak

Excellent

A magnificent ascent of Thapa peak, with perfect organization. The route is designed to combine trekking and mountaineering, the walking time studied for acclimatization in the high mountains. Our guide Lal very professional, was able to give us many recommendations: indeed it can be very cold there and at the beginning of April we had a lot of snow and warm clothes were required.
