The Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is a demanding trek, a classic adventure for those with previous high altitude trekking experience. It includes a taste of all of the trekking environments that Nepal has to offer.
The Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek circles around Dhaulagiri (8167m), the 7th highest peak in the world. It was first climbed by Kurt Diemberger, Ernest Forrer, Peter Diener, Albin Schelbert, and Nawang Dorje & Nima Dorje on 13th May 1960. After seven days of trek from Darbang you will reach the base camp of Dhaulagiri. The magnificent view of Annapurna and Nilgiri awaits you while crossing the French col and Dhampus pass. The Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek has all the features of a classic Nepal trek because in one trip it combines everything from wild landscapes as remote and beautiful as one can visit amongst the high glaciers of Nepal.
