Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek

This is one of the toughest and most demanding treks, specially designed for those seeking a real adventure. It circles the entire peak of Dhaulagiri, which at 8,167m, is the world's seventh highest peak. We drive to Beni in the Kali Ghandaki Valley, via Pokhara, to commence this great adventure. First few days are spent gaining altitude passing and following Mayagdi Khola before heading into remote and rugged terrain west of Dhaulagiri. The route leads through magnificent gorges and on to the wild terrain of the Chhonbarban Glacier, and the North Dhaulagiri Base Camp, before approaching French Pass (5,360m) and entering the Hidden Valley.

You will be trekking through some of the most magnificent country in the Himalayas; the effort required is something considerable, but the scenery and wild Himalayan grandeur provide more than adequate compensation. Thapa Pass (5,250m), to the north of Tukuche Peak, is the final crossing before we embark on the long descent back to the Kali Ghandaki river valley and the relative luxury of Jomsom. early morning fly back to Pokhara and then return to Kathmandu.
