Dhaulagiri Circuit

The world’s seventh highest mountain Dhaulagiri dominates this trekking trial along with other fifteen peaks above 7000m. Separated by the Kali Gandaki gorge, world’s deepest gorge with the famous Annapurna region the area provide extreme contrast and combination of nature and culture during the trek. The trek follows glaciers crossing high snowcapped passes fit for healthy trekkers who want to indulge in isolated, remote and much adventurous trials. The trial is full of icy paths along the valley formed by Myagdi River. The trial challenges the trekker yet the views are simply breathtaking. Some popular insights during the treks are of French and Thapa passes that offers both toughness and stunning views. The Dhaulagiri also known as ‘White Mountain’ stands tall as we pass through lush terraced hillsides and traditional villages settled in the rugged terrains.

The trek is graded as a strenuous trek as one must be physically very fit and have to sometime should be able to longer distances. There will be time to time rest to acclimatize in the high altitude in order to avoid altitude sickness. We will be trekking through areas filled with glaciers, snow and ice along with numerous base camps like Dhaulagiri Base Camp, Italian Base Camp, and Japanese base Camp.
