Overview of Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek

Mt. Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek was first discovered by a French expedition team that climbed Annapurna I in 1950.

Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is the Adventurous Dhaulagiri trekking route of Western Nepal, and this is separate from the Annapurna region though it falls in the same region. The Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek provides magnificent views of the whole Dhaulagiri range.

Trekking of the main paths is not only promising but can be enormously worthwhile, where you feel a sense of adventure and an increased ability to deal with astonishing Geography since it is a land of dramatic contrast. The trek route is mostly loved by altitude and wilderness lovers. The root requires excellent physical condition and basic mountaineering skills.

Dhaulagiri trekking starts from Beni Bazar however the road reaches Dharapani. Trekking into Italian Base Camp, there is a basic tea house with a striking Mountain View and terrace. After the Italian Base Camp, trekking through the glacier and snow clips. The final trial over French pass (5,355m), also the highest point of the trek, is not too long an ascent but can be challenging.

Downhill from French pass, we enter the lonely but mesmerizing area known as Hidden Valley, this place is one of the few true wilderness areas accessible in Nepal, and the Hidden Valley stretches away to the north, finally narrowing to a harsh gorge that links to Upper Dolpa.
