Dhaulagiri Circuit trek is challenging and a real adventure for experienced trekkers who are looking for an expedition-like experience.
Dhaulagiri is the 7th highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri circuit trekking was first discovered by the 1950 by French expedition team that climbed Annapurna I. Dhaulagiri round trek is chiefly attractive to people drawn to high mountain and wilderness, and requires an excellent physical condition and basic mountaineering skills.
Dhaulagiri trekking begin from Beni Bazar, trekking into Italian Base Camp. There are basic tea houses with beautiful mountain view and terraces. After Italian Base Camp, we can trek through the glacier and snow clips. The final challenge over French pass, also 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 know as Hidden Valley. This place is one of the 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 guides and porters staffs for this trek. Our staffs carry all the necessary goods and prepare healthy meals during trek.
Dhaulagiri Circuit trek start from Beni bank of Kali Gandaki and Myagdi Khola, follow the Myagdi Khola 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. Dhaulagiri treks end at Marpha and return to Pokhara by domestic flight.
