Round Dhaulagiri Trekking Service
Dhaulagiri Base camp trekking is one
of the most demanding trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Dhaulagiri
can be difficult, following glaciers and crossing high
snow-covered passes which present a challenge suited only to fit
individuals wishing to take on an adventure of a lifetime.
Following two days in the fascinating city of Kathmandu, we fly
to Pokhara and head to Baglung, the starting point of the trek,
in the Kali Ghandaki valley. The first few days are spent
gaining altitude, through lush terraced hillsides, passing many
villages, before ascending to wild and rugged terrain west of
Dhaulagiri (8167m). The route leads through magnificent gorges
and then follows the Chhonbardan glacier to the North Dhaulagiri
Base Camp. From here we ascend to the French Pass (5360m) and
enter the Hidden Valley where there are superb mountain views of
Sita Chuchura and the Mukut Himal. After exploration of the area
we cross the Thapa Pass (5250m) and enjoy magnificent views of
Annapurna 1 on the opposite side of the Kali Ghandaki river
valley. From the pass there is a long and very steep descent to
the village of Marpha, the first habitation for many days, from
where we trek along the popular Jomsom trail to Baglung. From
here we drive to Pokhara and relax by the lakeside before
returning to Kathmandu.
