Dhaulagiri Round trekking in the Annapurna Region is one of the most challenging treks in Nepal. Dhaulagiri at 8167m is the sixth-tallest mountain in the world and stands high above the well-trekked Muktinath pilgrim trail up the Kali Gandaki Valley. Dhaulagiri base camp trek offers beautiful Himalayan views of Mount Dhaulagiri 8167m, Mt. Manaslu 8163m, Mt. Annapurna 8091m with over 20 snowy peaks.
Dhaulagiri Circuit trekking includes two passes; the French pass (5360m) and Dhampus pass (5234m) which no tea houses accommodations available, leaving only tent camping through this area. Our 3-week trek begins in the village of Beni, 3-4 hours from Pokhara, and leads us to the villages of Darbang, Muri, Chariban, the Italian Base Camp, Dhaulagiri Base Camp, the French pass, the Dhumpus pass and finally the Marpha assembly of the Annapurna Circuit trekking trail. Trekkers should be in good physical fitness to make this the most enjoyable experience. We recommend this trek for those seeking more of a challenge in more remote and rugged regions of Nepal.
