Dhaulagiri is the seventh Highest Mountain in the world at 8,167 meters (26,795 ft) above sea level and the highest mountain within the borders of a single country (Nepal). It was first summited on 13 may 1960 by a Swiss and Austrian Expedition with Sherpa Climber. Dhaulagiri circuit Trekking was first discovered by the French expedition team who climbed Annapurna I. Dhaulagiri Round trekking is attractive to people drawn to High Mountain adventures and requires an excellent physical fitness and basically knowledge of mountaineering skills. Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek walks through snow-covered slopes, icy glaciers, and lateral moraine. Throughout the journey, the trekking route offers the splendid view of the majestic Dhaulagiri massif along with other Annapurna range mountain peaks that are above 7000m.

Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek begins with your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu. After the scenic flight to Pokhara and drive to Darbang begins the real trekking journey as you pass through densely forested trails and terraced hilly area. The trekkers also walk past various Magar villages which gives them the opportunity to understand their culture and lifestyle. The trek reaches three base camps; Italian Base Camp, Dhaulagiri Base Camp, and Japanese Base Camp. From Dhaulagiri Base Camp, trekkers can see the stunning icefall descending from the north-east col between Dhaulagiri and Tukuche Peak. Walking through the glacial moraines on white icy track, trekkers gently climb up to the French Pass (5,360m) which is the highest point of our trek. The trail then follows to reach the Hidden Valley behind the Dhaulagiri massif. The trekkers also cross Dhampus Pass and Thapa Pass and continue to descent which leads to the town of Marpha village, also known as apple farm town. After here from Marpha village we will be heading to Pokhara by flight/Drive.
