Trip Overview

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is one of the most challenging routes in this region. This activity 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 gives us remarkable, massive mountain views of Dhaulagiri.  It offers exciting sceneries and you can have a real experience of challenging walking along an icy track.

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is an exploration of wild nature. This trekking route has reopened this exhilarating region showing its long-kept secrets, Gandaki Gorge which is the world’s deepest gorge. This trek is to the west of the Annapurna Circuit trails from Pokhara. And it follows the MyagdiKhola to its source at the Chhonbardan Glacier just below Dhaulagiri. This trek is an adventure that encounters beautiful Hidden Valley allowing the trekkers to literally touch the majestic mountain Dhaulagiri.

We have an opportunity to see the wonderful views of the mountain like Dhaulagiri I, II, III, IV, and V. The woody wilderness and the continual bird chirping make the trip awesome. Finally, Everest Trekking Routes Mountain Guide Team has been Guide that Dhaulagiri Base Camp. This is an amazing vantage point for viewing the amazing mountain range of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The trail leads you to the fine village inhabitant by a wide variety of people. The trek is even more exciting and the forest of rhododendron and other beautiful flowers on the trail.      The trek has to walk through glaciers which gives you an extra feel completing other treks.

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Rabin Gurung

It was a trip we will always remember and be proud of. You need not worry about anything since Dhan (Sameer Gurung) and their group will arrange everything (i.e. Hotel, Food, transportation, a plane ticket to Lukla, etc.). The trekking was long and arduous yet our guide was very accommodating and conscious of us. He knows the place very well and will gladly tell you stories about it along the way. The whole trek was truly breathtaking. You won’t regret this trip! (Note: Try to reach viewing deck areas before sunrise and watch as the sun makes everything look spectacular!☺)

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Dhansingh Gurung

Dhansingh guided me on compressed Annapurna Circuit trek late last year and the experience far exceeded my expectations. Having someone who knew the route, language, local culture, weather conditions and wildlife intimately enabled me to relax and get the most from my trip. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt extremely well looked after and safe from the moment I arrived in Nepal right up until I left. I couldn’t recommend more highly, very professional service.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Dhansingh

We had a wonderful time on our trek. We did the 8 day ABC trek. The route is beautiful with lots of stunning vistas. Our guide Dhansingh was knowledgable and friendly and really looked after us. I would be happy to recommend this tour to anyone thinking of tackling ABC.

Everest Gokyo & Renjola Pass with Dhansigh

I first met Dhansingh in May of 2016 when we completed the Renjo La pass. I’ve now returned this summer of ’17 to explore with Dhansingh some areas of Annapurna. Dhansingh’s competency is the first rate, and he a very pleasant person with whom to spend time. I highly recommend Everest Trekking Routes.
