Dhampus Trek : This two day hike to the Dhampus hill is short but quite a rewarding trek. Walking through sparse villages, farm terraces and short stretch of woods we reach to the Dhampus hill after few hours of walk from Pokhara. A close face to face view of a long range of Annapurna and other mountains greets us on reaching Dhampus. We enjoy the amzing sunsets on the Himalayas in the evening and sunrise (next morning), a scenery that you will treasure for long. Next day we walk back down hill through equally scenic route and catch a vehicle for Pokhara.
Dhampus is not only a mountain view point but also a small, ethnic Gurung village. A hike to Dhampus will give an opportunity to watch the daily lives of these villagers from milching the buffalows to their daily works on the farms.
