Dhaulagiri Trekking

Dhaulagiri TrekkingThese are the most challenging treks with some technical climbing to the peaks above 6000m. One must have an experience of 5000m levels trek to perform these types of treks. All treks are based on camps with full excess of climbing gears. 

Hard treks are suitable only for real adventure seekers. Some steep ascents to high altitudes with the possibility of rope climbing are involved in this category. Trekkers will need stamina to complete one of these wilderness treks as it lasts for 20-28 days. All expeditions are based on camps and will lead more than snow line, 5000m.

A circuit of the Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m) massif is possible for well-equipped and fully self-sufficient group of trekkers. The trek is started at Beni, the district headquarter of Myagdi. Magars are the dwellers of this area. This group of hill dwellers are similar in many ways to their Gurung neighbours but are thought to have settled in Nepal some time earlier. Like their Gurung cousins, the Magar have a tradition of service in Gurkha regiments. The Dhaulagiri trail follows the Myagdi Khola. Passing through the settlements of Darbang and Muri, the country is still quite heavily populated with scattered villages and farming land. Beyond Muri, the Myagdi Khola swings north and the landscape becomes much more rugged and sparsely populated. A great significance of this trek is French pass (5360m). Trekkers must be aware of the health of their group members, especially on the section between French pass and Dhampus pass (5250m). The thrilling region has shown its long kept secrets, since reopened of the places like the Gandaki Gorge, the deepest Gorge in the world!! Dhaulagiri means "white mountain" though many mountains over the world have names, which translate, to White Mountain, this is without doubt the most astonishing one.
