Dhaulagiri Exploration Trek

 

Dhaulagiri Exploration Trek

Trek Grade: D (Mountaineering)
Trek Duration: 15 days & 20 days
Hotel in KTM: 5 Nights
Seasons: Feb. to May & Sept. to Dec.

This is a long, difficult trek around Dhaulagiri that starts from Beni on the Kali Gandaki River. Follow the Myagdi Khola westwards to Darbang and turn north on a tiny trail that leads through forests into the high country. Much of the route is on snow and glaciers as it crosses French Col (5,240m.), traverses the head of Hidden Valley, and crosses 5,150m. Dhampus Pass. The trek ends with a steep descent to Marpha and a return to Pokhara, either via the Kali Gandaki or over the Ghorapani ridge for a panoramic view of the entire Dhaulagiri massif. Dhaulagiri is the sixth highest summit in the world, and though its eastern aspects are a familiar sight to those traveling the Annapurna Circuit, much of the country surrounding this 60km (56 miles) wide massif remains an enigma. Due to its unique position at the western extreme of Nepal’s cluster of really high mountains and the vast valley of the Kali Gandaki which passes right under its highest summit, the Dhaulagiri Himal generates its own unique weather systems.
