Dhaulagiri is the 7th highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri circuit trekking was first discovered in 1950 by French expedition team that climbed Annapurna I, and provided stunning views of the whole Dhaulagiri range. Dhaulagiri round is chiefly attractive to people drawn to high mountain and wilderness, and requires an excellent physical condition and basic mountaineering skills.
Dhaulagiri trek begins from Beni Bazar, Trekking into Italian Base Camp, there is basic tea house with beautiful mountain view and terraces. After Italian Base Camp, trekking through the glacier and snow clips. The final challenge is over French pass (the highest point of the trek). It is not too long an ascent but can be demanding. Descending from French pass, we enter the lonely but fascinating area known as Hidden Valley, this place is one of few true wilderness areas accessible in Nepal, the Hidden Valley stretches away to the north eventually narrowing to a rugged gorge which connects to Upper Dolpa and Upper Mustang. We need to organize full board of camping with necessary guide and porters staffs for this trek. Our staffs are well prepared and carry all the necessary goods and prepare healthy meals during trek.
Dhaulagiri round trek starts from Beni bank of Kali Gandaki and Myagdi Khola (river), follow the Myagdi Khola (river) westwards to Darbang and turn north on a tiny trail that leads through forests into the high country. Much of the route is on snow and glaciers as it crosses French Col, traverses the head of Hidden Valley and crosses Dhampus Pass. Dhawalagiri trek ends at Marpha and return to Pokhara by flight.
