Dhaulagiri Round Trek

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is Moderate Pass Adventure

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is one of the most challenging routes in this region.  This trekking route is a demanding trail that has a status of being precious and rough around the edges. It is an off the beaten track trail that goes around Mt. Dhaulagiri which is the seventh highest mountain in the world. This trekking route lies North West of Pokhara culminating at its highest point at the eastern end. This trekking route is dedicated to those with adventurous hearts and for climbing teams. This trekking route gives us remarkable, massive mountain views of Dhaulagiri. The trek begins in a forested and terraced hilly area that is predominantly dominated by the Magar community. It offers exciting sceneries and you can have a real experience of challenging walking along an icy track. This trek takes you to an extremely remote hanging valley which gives you an expedition feel when you cross it.

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is an exploration of the wild nature. This trekking route has reopened this exhilarating region showing its long-kept secrets, like the Gandaki Gorge which is the world’s deepest gorge. This trek is to the west of the Annapurnas starts from Pokhara and follows the MyagdiKhola to its source at the Chhonbardan Glacier just below Dhaulagiri. This trek is an adventure which encounters exceedingly beautiful Hidden Valley allowing the trekkers to literally touch the majestic mountain Dhaulagiri. The woody wilderness and the continual bird chirping make the trip awesome. This trekking route is scenically amazing whilst being a challenging adventure owing to the difficulty of the circuit.

When the trek ends you will take a flight to Kathmandu rather than trekking back to Pokhara.

This trip is organized by Everest Trekking Routes which have over 20 years’ experience in Trekking, Tours, Peak Climbing and many others activities in Nepal.
