Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking is a challenging trekking destination on an off-beaten trekking trail that circles around the world’s seventh highest mountain crossing two Himalayan passes. This trek has been designed to capture the best of Nepal’s most popular trekking regions. Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking is a strenuous trekking adventure through alpine pastures, higher passes and serene uninhabited valleys. Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek explores a wild, remote and unconventional trekking area of the Nepal Himalayas.

Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking commences after an 8 hour scenic drive from Kathmandu to Beni. From here we head to the north-west direction through the villages of Babichour, Dorbang and Darapani to Muri, from where you head north still keeping to the banks of the Myagdi Khola. Muri is the last major settlement along this trail and is inhabited by people of the Magar tribe, of Mongoloid stock and descended from the early settlers of the Nepalese middle hills. From Muri, you head north along the Myagdi Khola through the villages of Baghara, Dobang and Chartare to Pakoban. Beyond Pakoban there are no permanent settlements. Still heading north you reach to the outer edge of the Chhanbardan Glacier, keeping to the left side, we reach the Dhaulagiri Base Camp from where magnificent mountain vistas are available. Head north-east from the Base Camp and climb the steep incline to the French Pass (5,360m), between Tukche Peak (6,920m) and Sita Chuchura (6,611m). Heading east you descend a little and pass through a portion of the Hidden Valley and climb to Thapa Pass (5,250m), between Tukche Peak and Thapa Peak (6,012m) from where you begin your descent, heading south-east to Alubari. From Alubari, the trail further descends to the village of Marpha on the banks of the Kali Gandaki River, and then heads north to Jomsom from where you fly back to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu.
Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking is an adventurous trekking experience to witness one of the “white mountains’ as it portrays pure glistening snowcapped peaks which keeps you thrilled and captivated throughout the trekking trail taking you through the land of dramatic contrast.
