Dhaulagiri Trek

DHAULAGIRI TREKKING

Dhaulagiri was climbed first in 1960 by an international team under the leadership of Max Eiselin, Lucerne. This is a long, difficult trek around Dhaulagiri (8167m) which starts from Beni. The route follows the Myagdi Khola west-wards to Darbang, then turns north through lowland forests into the high country. Much of the route is on snow and glaciers as it crosses French Col pass (5240m). Then we traverse from the head of Hidden Valley, and crosses Dhampus Pass (5155m). The trek ends with a steep descent to Marpha and a return to Pokhara via the Ghorapani ridge.
