Description:

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is the most popular trekking packages to visit in Nepal offered by Himalaya Family Adventure. Dhaulagiri Round Trek is located 8167 meters high Mountain, separated from the Annapurna region by Kali Gandaki Gorge (deepest in the world) includes some fifteen peaks above 7000mt. The Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek area is relatively strenuous and needs some high altitude trekking experiences. Magdi Glacier, Dhaulagiri Base Camp Trek (4750m), French Pass (5360m) (highest point of the trek)including the several peaks such as Putali Himal and Tukuche Peak gives you an excellent view of Dhaulagiri range. A hidden snow valley (after crossing French Pass) gives you the heaviest test of the white world in Dhaulagiri Round Trek Area. The Dhampus Pass between Tukuche peak and Thapa peak is another heaven in the trip. Duration can be shorter or longer, depend on your time and interest. A demanding terrain, the average altitude of above 5000 meters (for few days) and two passes, French Pass (5360 meters) and Dhampus Pass (5244 meters) will test the endurance of every trekker. All this will also lead to some breathtaking landscapes and views of snowy mountains of Himalayas. Dhaulagiri Round Trek concludes in one of the most interesting valleys of the country, Kali Gandaki Valley.
