Dhaulagiri Trek is wild, remote, and off-the-beaten trekking in the western region of Nepal beyond the Annapurna region. It is a challenging and rewarding trek with a great massif of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m) the 7th highest peak in the world. Dhaulagiri Trek provides great massive views of the Dhaulagiri ranges and fifteen peaks of above 7,000 meters peaks which are magnificent and rewarding. The trek goes through big challenging mountain passes, crossing over French pass (5,360m) and Thapa Pass (5,200m) providing more spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Thorong peak, Annapurna Ranges, and Kali Gandaki River; the world’s deepest gorge. Trekkers walk through cultivated fields connected in the lower parts and to some of the mountain villages while enjoying the shops, teahouses, and lifestyle of the Gurung, Chhetri, and Magar people. You will walk along cobblestone paths, over suspension bridges, and through dense forests, enjoying the vistas of some of the world’s most beautiful mountains.
