Dhaulagiri is the 7th highest mountain in the world, lies north west of Pokhara above the deep cliff of the Kali Gandaki valley. White Mountain is the meaning of the name Dhaulagiri. Relatively challenging, the Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking is a thrilling journey to the rugged landscape, steep ascend and descend. We head through the unspoiled valley of Myagdi district, including the green hillsides, terraced landscape, ethnic communities, gorges and the most striking Himalayan views of Dhaulagiri range. It offers a distinct experience of walking in the high altitude.
The Dhaulagiri trek begins after a long and scenic drive from Kathmandu for about 8 hours to Beni. Following the ridge of Myagdi Khola, it crosses several villages like Dorbang, Dharapani and Muri. They are mixed settlements, especially of ethnic Magar groups. After reaching the Pakoban village, we cant find the stable settlements of local people. The exciting Dhaulagiri trekking trip leads through the Glaciers, continually to the Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Along the trekking trail of Dhaulagiri trekking, trekkers have to cross some challenging high passes as French Pass (5360m) and Thapa Pass (5250m). No doubt, the stunning views of Tukche Peak, Sita Chuchura, Thapa Peak,all annapurna ranges, Dhaulagiri massif, thrilling gorges make this trekking spectacular and memorable. Walking through the deepest gorge in the world- Kaligandaki to the Jomsom via Marpha is another reward for the trekkers to feel the astonishing mountain journey in Nepal Hiking Holidays. If we can manage another extra day, we can hike up to the Muktinath, which is a famous pilgrimage place of Hindus and Buddhist. The trip ends as we fly from Jomsom to Pokhara for 25 minutes.
Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is a perfect trail to explore sub-tropical and alpine flora and fauna. As the trip continues, we can discover lush forests of oak, rhododendron, Juniper and several other alpine vegetations. Spring and autumn are the best seasons for the Around Dhaulagiri Trekking package. ADVENTURE SMALL WORLD TREKS AND EXPEDITION offers special package trekking for the Dhaulagiri circuit trail.
