Round Dhaulagiri

 

'Round Dhaulagiri Trek is one of the most beautiful trekking destination of Nepal. This trek is also called 'Dhaulagiri Circuit or Dhaulagiri Base Camp Trek. This trek brings you to the base camp of Mount Dhaulagiri. Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m) is the world's seventh highest peak, rises above the deep cliff of the Kali Gandaki valley.  Dhaulagiri round trek is one of the challenging adventure treks in Nepal which follows glaciers and crosses high snowcapped passes such as the French pass (5380m) and the Thapa pass (5250m). Walk through the pristine valley of Myagdi, lush terraced hillsides, traditional villages, rugged terrain of massif Dhaulagiri. You will also experience snow and glacier walking, enjoying spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Thorong peak, Annapurna and Kali Gandaki River, the world deepest gorge. On the trail, you may also encounter semi-wild yak herds, mountain sheep in the remote valleys of this region. Besides wild nature, you also enjoy the lifestyle of Nepal’s ethnic people such as Gurung, Chhetri, and Magars.

 

rekking in this region means an exploration of the wild. Recently reopened this thrilling region shows its long kept secrets, 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.
