Dhaulagiri Round Trek

14 Days

Dhaulagiri Round Trek can be the utmost daring and inspiring trek in a hardly visited area of Nepal. It is an excellent way to understand Nepal, with a combination of environment and culture in plenty. It 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 make 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 a chance to discover the native lifestyles and culture of Gurung, Magar, and other community people.
