Dhaulagiri Trek is recommended for experienced high altitude trekkers in very good physical condition. The route is remotely and possible only in the autumn season due to excessive snow and ice conditions in the winter and spring. The region is practically virgin territory for trekkers and it provides some extremely dramatic contrasts.
The Dhalugiri massif (8167mtrs) is separated from the Annapurna region by the Kali Gandaki river and gorge (the deepest river canyon in the world) the range of mountains that includes the Dhaulagiri massif has 30 peaks of over 6000 meters.

The Dhaulagiri Circuit trek is a long and difficult trek that takes us around Dhaulagiri. It starts from Beni on the Kali Gandaki river bank. From here we trek along the Myagdi Khola (river) westwards to Darbang before trekking north through forests and into the high country. A lot of the route is on snow and the glacier moraine on the way up to the French Col (5240m.) before entering at the head of Hidden Valley and a crossing of Dhampus Pass (5155m). The Dhaulagiri circuit trek ends with a steep descent to Marpha before returning to Pokhara.
