Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek – 21 Days

Dhaulagiri

“Give yourself a break from the mundane by embarking on a fabulous journey to view the marvelous Mt. Dhaulagiri with us.”

Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is considered as adventurous walk on the off the beaten track of northwestern Nepal. Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) is the seventh highest peak of the world and this trip lets you encircle the grand Himalayas in challenging and rewarding way. You can experience the off the beaten path trekking adventure with local cultural exploration and magnificent view of surrounding snowcapped mountains.

Trekking to Dhaulagiri Circuit initiates as we take a long scenic drive for around 8 hours towards Beni from capital city of Kathmandu. The cultural mix of Magar, Thakalis and Gurung is seen around the village of Muri. Further trekking along the banks of Myagdi Khola, we ascend towards beautiful villages of Baghara, Dobang, Chartare and Pakoban. Dhaulagiri trekking trails becomes even rougher and challenging as we head further crossing Chaabardan Glacier to arrive at Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Proper acclimatization is important part of our Dhaulagiri trekking and after taking a day off we climb steep up to French pass. It is an ideal place to stop for a while and witness the magical views of snowcapped peaks like Dhaulagiri Himalayan range, Tukuche peak and other neighboring peaks. Following the steep way downwards, we step on beautiful village of Dhampus, Yak Kharka that leads us to Marpha. Enjoying the fresh local produce around Marpha, we trek to Jomsom airstrip on upcoming day to board a flight to scenic lake city of Pokhara. Engaging ourselves in some fun activities around Pokhara, we drive back to Kathmandu & announce the end of our adventurous trek.

As it is a challenging and strenuous trekking adventure comprising high level of physical fitness and regular exercise is recommended before embarking for it. We furthermore recommend Spring and Autumn season as the prime seasons to go for this trek.
