Dhaulagiri Circuit trekking

Dhaulagiri Circuit trekking, Dhaulagiri Round trek information

Dhaulagiri circuit Trekking  is one of the challenging trekking trail which takes you one round the seventh highest mountain in world Mt. Dhaulagiri(8,167m),sited in the western region of Nepal. The trek explores a wild, remote and off-the-beaten-track-area of western Nepal Himalayas. We come across verdant valley amidst cultivated fields, passes through the rhododendron forest, and meadows with high passes, hot springs and much more exhilarating scenery. This trail is inhabited by people of Magars tribe of Mongol stock with their own unique culture. This trek avoids the main trail and therefore it is quite strenuous and demanding.

Dhaulagiri circuit trekking route was first discovered by French expeditions that climb Annapurna I. This circuit provides stunning views of the whole Dhaulagiri range. Base Camp is at altitude of 4750 meters, dominated by the Dhaulagiri I(80167m) in south and Dhaulagiri II(7751), III(7715m), IV(7661), V(7618m) to the west. This trail crosses the French Pass (5400m) and the Thapa pass (5230m). This route is recently opened so it has long kept secret to be unfold like Kali Gandaki Gorge and many others. Geographically, it is the land of dramatic contrast. The trek starts after an 8 hour scenic drive from Kathmandu to Beni and then you have to head north- west direction passing some of the villages of Magars community. Dhaulagiri is regarded as challenging and most adventurous trek around the Dhaulagiri massif. Any parties that are planning to do this trek must have a prim consideration with regard to the porter’s clothing and equipment at the moment of crossing French pass (5400m) sometimes it may be risky due to the bad weather, such as snowing heavy, strong winds locked of trail etc.  Since Dhaulagiri circuit trekking route has been open, Dawn in Nepal Adventure, arranges the numerous trekking and recreation activities to make your visit in Nepal unforgettable life time experience with the fully dedicated and professional Guides, staffs.  Welcome to be around Himalayas.
