Conical peak on the northern side of Thapa (Dhampus) Pass. Generally snow covered but not alpine in nature ice no bergshrund or crevasses. Access from Marpha or via Hidden Valley on circuit of Dhaulagiri.

Start from Beni on the Kali Gandaki and follows the Marsyangdi Khola westwards to Darbang before turning north along a tiny trail that leads though forest into high country. Much of the route is over snow and glaciers, crossing the French Col at 5240m, going through the Hidden Valley and crossing the 5155m Dhampus Pass. The trek passes Batase Danda (windy hill), where it is usually as windy as the name suggests, then descends steeply to Marpha in the Kali Gandaki valley.
