Trekking in Dhaulagiri (7th highest peak of the world) is one of the most challenging and immensely rewarding trek. Massive mountains range of Dhaulagiri consist of fifteen magnificient 7000m peaks. Being the land of dramatic contrast, Dhaulagiri trekking follows glaciers and crosses high snowcapped passes- French pass(5360m) and Dhampus pass(5200m) which requires good physical fitness, some previous mountain walking experience and great sense of thrill and adventure. Dhaulagiri literally means “white mountain”.
Dhaulagiri trek begins from Beni Myagdi valley. We follow the Myagdi Khola west wards to Darbang and turn north. We go through Sibang, Muri, Boghara, Dogang, Shalaghar and then to Italian Base camp. We ascend to Dhaulagiri Base Camp (3810m) where we rejuvenate for a day. We can enjoy the beautiful Himalayan views of Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Annapurna with many other snowy peaks from the Base camp. Dhaulagiri Massif screens the hidden lands of Dolpo to its north and to the west of it are Nepal’s far western hills. We move further up to trek hidden valley(4900m) and then cross the French pass(5360m) the highest point of journey. Most of the path is on snow and glaciers as it crosses French Pass and Dhampus Pass(5200m). Then we descend to Marpha and return to Pokhara either via the Kali Gandaki or over the Ghorepani ridge for a panoramic view of entire Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Massif.
