Around Dhaulagiri Trek is a challenging trek around the Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m / 26,795 ft), the seventh highest Himalayan Peak lying north-west of Pokhara in the Western Nepal and south of the Tibet and Nepal border. The Dhaulagiri, along with another eight thousander, the Annapurna, carves the world's deepest gorge of Kaligandaki. The trek also crosses two high passes - the French pass (5,240m/17,192ft) and the Thapa pass (5,155m/16,913ft). Moreover, you will also experience snow and glacier walking, especially around Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri north base camp. Along the way, we enjoy spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Thorong peak, Annapurna and Kali Gandaki River with 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 the wild nature, you will also enjoy the shops, teahouses, and lifestyle of Nepal's ethnic people such as Gurung, Chhetri, and Magars.

Our Around Dhaulagiri trek begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Beni. The first few days of the trek passes through cultivated fields connected to some of the mountain villages.  The climb begins to get tougher after Dobhan, as we ascend to the Italian Base Camp. The trek continues on to the Iced French and Thapa Passes which have to be scaled before you descend down a winding trail to Yak Kharka. After a long descend you will arrive in Marpha, popular city of Mustang district. Follow classical Annapurna Trail to Jomsom and fly Jomsom to Pokhara the next day. The final and scenic drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu concludes the trek.
