Description

One of the best and extremely exciting off the beaten tracks to applaud the beauty of Dhaulagiri massif, which is the 7th highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri Mountain ranges are immensely attractive to people drawn to High Mountain and adventure and require a strong physical condition and basic mountaineering skills. Even though the trekking days are not long, Dhaulagiri is tough trekking so you have two acclimatization days and you only spend two nights above 5000m. It is an extremely beautiful hidden valley trek that allows the trekkers to literally touch the splendid mountain Dhaulagiri at Dhaulagiri Base Camp. 
Dhaulagiri Trek starts with a scenic drive to Beni from where you commence our actual walking journey. On our way to Dhaulagiri Base Camp, we cross the beautiful and vibrant village of Darbang, Muri, and Chariban, Italian and finally arrive at Dhaulagiri Base camp. The trail goes through several passes like French pass and Dhampus pass from where we descend down to the Marpha and join the Annapurna Circuit Route. This trek is more beautiful because of its remoteness and less crowded area. The best months to go for the Dhaulagiri Trek are from March to May and August to November.
