Around Dhaulagiri Trekking

Around Dhaulagiri TrekkingDhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountains in the world, soars 8167m above the great Kali Gandaki Valley. The valley is the deepest on the earth as it is flanked by two 8000m peaks namely; Dhaulagiri I and Annapurna I. Besides the breathtaking views of Dhaulagiri’s massive south face and Annapurna ranges, infinite variety is the distinctive feature of Dhaulagiri Trekking. We trek through forests of pine and rhododendron and fir to cross over French Pass (5240m). We descend into the wild and untraveled valleys with possible sights of Thar (blue sheep). Then the trail crosses over Thapa La Pass (5250m) with exceptional views of the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest gorge in the world and then steep descend to a valley and finally to Pokhara this reason is basically virgin territory for trekkers. Trekking off the main paths is not only possible, but can be immensely rewarding, though you do need a sense of adventure and an increased ability to deal with unexpected. Geographically Dhaulagiri region is a land of dramatic contrast. From the near tropical Pokhara valley, steep slopes climb to snowcapped heights of over 8100 meters at the northern border with Tibet. Dhaulagiri I, the sixth tallest peak in the world, towers high above the well- trekked Muktinath pilgrim trail up the Kaligandaki valley. The vast massif screen hidden land of Dolpa to its north and to the west of I are Nepal’s western hills.
