Dhaulagiri Trek

Trekking around Dhaulagiri(8167mt), the 7th highest mountain stands for an adventure into the wild. This trek has been designed to capture the best of Nepal's most popular trekking region, while avoiding the heavy traffic of the Annapurna Sanctuary trails. It's nevertheless a demanding and remote wilderness trek that completes a challenging circuit around the massif. Few trekkers have explored the far side of Dhaulagiri and had the satisfaction of completing this outstanding trek. The Dhaulagiri trek has you crossing two challenging high mountain passes, which are the French Pass at 5380m and the Thapa Pass at 5250m. The Dhaulagiri Circuit can be immensely rewarding as you are walking through the most beautiful scenery the world has on offer, though you do need a sense of adventure and an increased ability to deal with unexpected. We arrange the Dhaulagiri Circuit from September to December and from March to May. All our guides and porters are experienced and licensed.
