Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek


The Dhaulagiri Circuit trip is difficult and exciting for experienced hikers searching for an expedition-style adventure. This circuit walk is breathtaking and fascinating at every stage, from farming towns in the Himalayan foothills to high alpine pastures, desolate valleys, and close-up views of numerous peaks above 8,000 meters.

The Dhaulagiri Circuit trip takes you through high alpine pastures, uninhabited valleys, high windswept passes, woods, and terraced hills. This hard journey, which includes the Dhaulagiri Base Camp at 4,740m and crosses two passes – the French Pass at 5,360m and Dhampus Pass at 5,200m – is a demanding trek that requires a high degree of fitness. The benefits of this trek include beautiful vistas of Tukuche Peak (6,920m), Dhaulagiri I (8,167m), Dhaulagiri II (7,751m), Dhaulagiri III (7,715m), and Dhaulagiri V (7,715m) if you have good stamina and basic climbing skills (7,618m).
