Dhaulagiri Trekking information

Dhaulagiri Trekking

Round Dhulagiri (Dhulagiri trekking) Just west of Annapurna region is the 40 mile wide Dhaulagiri Himal. Dhaulagiri I, the sixth-tallest peak in the world, towers high above the well-trekked Muktinath pilgrim trail up the Kali Gandaki Valley. The vast massif screens the hidden lands of Dolpo to its north, and to the west of it are Nepal's far western hills. Only to the east along the Kali Gandaki Valley can we easily view the mountain close up, so massive Dhaulagiri with its symmetrical peak and four major outliners remains an enigma along much of its perimeter. Like fabled but restricted Dolpo, the complete month-long trek around Dhaulagiri is only for a handful of hikers. This is because much of the route traverses difficult, remote country.

We start our trek from Beni, after long day drive from Kathmandu going through nice village in the beginning and through high and remote area of the glacier and passes later and finally come down to Marpha where we meet the main trail of Annapurna circuit or kaligandaki. Then, we join this trail and make the trek through kaligandaki valley and trek upto Muktinath, the gateway of Mustang. As this is Nepal's one of the most demanding trek and goes through glacier, French pass and Thapa pass, only experience trekkers should attempt this trek. Clients carry only daypack and walk on their own pace. Average hiking per day in Dhulagiri trek 6-7 hrs.
