Trip Introduction

Dhaulagiri Round Trek can be the utmost daring and inspiring trek in a hardly visited area of Nepal. It is a excellent way to understand Nepal with a combination of environment and culture in plenty. Dhaulagiri Trek is really an exciting trek that needs a skill to deal with surprising and can be an enormously satisfying chance to experience the majesty of enormous Dhaulagiri series all at once.

Dhaulagiri Trek starts from Beni on the Kali Gandaki River and soars to the attractive, pure valley of Myagdi Khola which flows southwards from the heart of the Dhaulagiri Himal. The ever-changing scenery and attractive villages to Dhaulagiri Base camp makes this trek even more motivating. The mountain sights on the climb and decline of the route are simply extraordinary. The attractive rhododendron forests, deciduous oak trees and junipers will keep your feelings up the entire time.

Discovering the concealed valley, passing the Dhampus Pass and building a long decline to Marpha in the Kali Gandaki Valley enhances the happiness of this trek. This trek can also be an chance to discover the native life styles of Gurung, Magar and other community people with their culture.
