Mt. Dhaulagiri, the beautiful mountain that rises at 8167 metres is the sixth highest mountain of the world. The trek that initiates from a small and popular town that lies at the confluence of Myagdi River and Kaligandaki gorge and takes you to some unspoiled and less travelled regions which has been able to retain its natural beauty and splendour intact. The beautiful landscape, hidden valleys, High Mountain passes along with many snow-capped peaks like Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Annapurna and other 23 neighboring peaks is a natural boon that makes Dhaulagiri trek a natural paradise. The biggest achievement of Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is the opportunity of crossing two high mountains passes namely French pass at an elevation of 5,360 meters and Dhampus pass at an elevation of 5,234 meters. The trek is not just about mountain passes and snow clad peaks but the richness in flora and faunas is a treasure that it holds within its jungle, hills, and unspoiled agricultural lands. The people who live in this remote area are an inspiration in themselves. The lifestyle of the people who live here and their unique culture that they have been treasuring since long is beautiful and adorable. Your journey begins with a scenic drive to Beni from where you initiate your actual trekking journey. You pass the warm and vibrant villages of Darbang, Muri, and Chariban to the Italian and Dhaulagiri Base camp. On the route, you will pass the high mountain passes like French pass and Dhampus pass from where you descend down to the Marpha and join the Annapurna Circuit route. Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is the awesome trekking trail but due to its remoteness and certain criteria to be a capable trekker, it has few travellers who actually opt for this trek. So, if you find yourself capable then feel free to join Safeways Holidays team.
