“Travel rugged Himalayan terrains to get exceptional Himalayan perspectives of Mt. Dhaulagiri with us.”Located at an approximate altitude of 8,167 meters above sea level is the glorious Mt. Dhaulagiri which is truly one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. However, it has not been able to garner much attention from the outside world and is often left unexplored by many trekkers and tourists who visit Nepal. Trekking in this particular region can be a life-changing moment for any novice trekker who wants to experience something out of the ordinary. The word Dhaulagiri stands for “White Mountain” in Nepalese language. This largely due to the fact that its snowy summit reflects a very bi-wildering sight which cannot be unseen by travellers who are making their way into the fascinating region of Dhaulagiri. Starting off with a cherish-able drive away from the capital city of Kathmandu, we travel to Beni town which is a small community town situated in the western part of Nepal. Here onward, our arduous journey commences reaching Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Not only that but, trekkers also get to cross the famous French Pass (5,360m) and Dhampus Pass (5,200m) which can be a daring task for trekkers with vertigo. As it is situated close to the famous Annapurna region and separated only the Kali Gandaki gorge, this region holds a great amount of promise for people who dare to leave the mostly trekked trails and go towards the wilderness areas that have an unimaginable quantity of natural and cultural biodiversity. Even though trekkers are just realizing the beauty of Dhaulagiri region, many consider a trek here to be very demanding and physically exhausting when compared to other popular regions like the Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang regions. Geographically this area of Nepal tends to be more pristine preserved away from the external forces of modern development. This drastically alluring arena filled with soaring Himalayan peaks and the typically intriguing cultures of indigenous communities living here is some of the major highlights of the entire trek. To sum up, we end our trek by taking a flight to Pokhara from Jomsom airport and lastly by driving back to Kathmandu city. Without a doubt, our 21 days Dhaulagiri Trek is bound to provide trekkers with a phenomenal mountaineering and cultural experiences with many extreme adventurous trekking trails which demand a high level of physical fitness throughout the trek. In general, we mostly prefer Mar-Apr-May and Sep-Oct-Nov as the best time to plan and go for this trek as this trek remains closed during winter seasons. Contact, Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition today and don’t miss out on the chance to visit this spectacular region with our professionally trained trekking staffs.
