Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking-20 Days

Around Dhaulagiri Trek is a challenging trek in the region of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m 26,795 ft), the seventh highest Himalayan Peak lying north-west of Pokhara in the Western Nepal and south of the Tibet. The Dhaulagiri, along with another eight thousander, the Annapurna, carves the world's deepest gorge of Kaligandaki. The trek also crosses two high passes - the French pass (5,240m/17,192ft) and the Thapa pass (5,155m/16,913ft). Moreover, we will also experience snow and glacier walking, especially around Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri North Base Camp. Along the way, we enjoy spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Thorong peak, Annapurna and Kali Gandaki River with the world deepest gorge. On the trail, we may also encounter semi-wild yak herds, mountain sheep in the remote valleys of this region. Besides the wild nature, we also enjoy the shops, teahouses, and lifestyle of Nepal's ethnic people such as Gurung, Chhetri, and Magars.

Mardihimal treks begans Dhaulagiri Trek  with a drive from pokhara to Beni. The first few days of the trek passes through cultivated fields connected to some of the mountain villages. The climb begins to get tougher after Dobhan, as we ascend to the Italian Base Camp. The trek continues on to the Iced French and Thapa Passes which have to be scaled before we descend down a winding trail to Yak Kharka. After a long descend we will be at Marpha, popular city of Mustang district. From this juncture, we follow the classical Annapurna Trail to Jomsom and fly Jomsom to Pokhara the next day. Then your free time will be start over in pokhara.
