Dhaulagiri Trek The Most Challenging Trek / NPL 31
Dhaulagiri Trekking is one of the most popular and Adventures trek in Nepal and Dhaulagiri circuit trek is the most challenging trekking as well in this region. Dhaulagiri is the sixth highest mountain in the world and we organize this trip in Camping Style as still there is not good accommodation and food available in this adventure route. No doubt, we will have the most exciting experience from the trekking and be enchanted with the scenes of the area.

Dhaulagiri Base Camp Trek Starts from Kathmandu to Beni by bus, from Beni, we set our trekking on feet. In between, we happen to cross many cultivated fields, forests and villages, where various ethnic groups reside, namely, Gurungs, Chhetris, and Magars and after few days of trekking, we reach at Italian base camp, from where we will see the exciting views of Dhaulagiri I, II, III, IV& V. we will have a rest for few days for acclimatize with the altitude.

Once we are ready, we head on to Dhaulagiri north base camp, and continue our trek to the French pass [5,240 m] and Thapa pass [5,155 m]. In between we can encounter semi-wild yak herds, mountain sheep or the elusive snow leopard etc and we also can see the views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Throng peak, Annapurna and Kali Gandaki River; the world deepest gorge.

Subsequently, we descend down to Marpha, a popular city of Mustang district, which is situated between majestic mountain of Annapurna, Nilgiri and Machhapuchhare, and then either we trek to Jomsom and fly to Pokhara or we follow the classic Annapurna Circuit Trail and reach at Tatopani [hot-water in Nepali], where we can have a bath as well. From Tatopani, we ascend to Ghorepani and down to Pokhara and then finally back to Kathmandu.

Day 05: Trek Darbang Tokam
Crossing the suspension bridge to the right bank, pass the Tributary Rectum khola to your left as you go to the right through the hamlet of Darbang. Follow the right bank path along the river at the base of stone cliffs to Phedi (1100m) with its two teahouses. Just beyond the Phedi, cross the Dang khola, which flows from the left, and begin to climb a ridge on the opposite bank? Climbing up a steep hill you will enter a mountainside on the Myagdi Khola side from the pine-covered ridge path to Dharapani, a heavily populated village. Once again climb a steep slope after which you descend a mountain path and you will reach to Tokam.
Day 06: Trek Tokam Muri
From Takum to go to Muri you will follow the stone-welled path a short way beyond Phalli Gaun and enter the terraced fields to the right and cross the Dhara khola via a suspension bridge. If it is the dry season, descend the valley next to the school, walk to the opposite bank, and climb the steep hill for a short cut. The main path ascends the mountainside from the suspension bridge, passes below the village of Dhara and goes through a hamlet to an up and down mountain path to join with the shortcut described above. Though this is the long way the path is better. Follow the mountain path and skrit around the ridge, emerging once again to the right bank of the Myagdi khola. The mountain path continues, winding uphill, and when you skirt around a ridge, a vista of Dhaulagiri 1 (8167m) and Gurja Himal (7193m) opens up. Reach the large village of Muri where the houses of the Magar clan closely together.
Day 07:  Trek Muri Bagar
Descend a gentle slope, and cross a rocky stream to Dhora khola. Here you will cross the river and climb to the right up the mountainside to Ghorban dhara. View from this pass is excellent, for the first time you can see Ghustung south (6465m). Follow the right bank path past Naura where you begin to ascend the mountainside. After climbing for a short while, take a path that traverses the steep grass-covered hill. Climbing after a while you enter a traverse to the right, here you must also be beware of falling into the gorge of the Myagdi khola. Soon you descend through a forested area, and reach to Bagar (2080).
Day 08: Trek Bagar Doban
From Boghara the trail proceeds, leaving the fascinating villages. The trail becomes increasingly challenging. Walking some hours you will reach to Doban.
Day 09: Trek Doban - Chariban
Day 10: Trek Chariban - Italy Base Camp
Day 11: Trek Italy Base Camp - Glacier Camp
Today is a short walk although essential for acclimatization process, unlike most other itineraries we believe in having two extra nights between Italian base camp and main Dhaulagiri base camp (otherwise going from 3,660m to 4,740m will result in AMS and possibly worse). From Italian base camp the trail descends steeply through the lateral moraine to gain the glacier, it is likely that we will fix a rope here mainly to help the porters. One crosses the glacier and comes off the moraine on the left side to enter the Chonbarden gorge. Walk along talus in the Chonbarden gorge to the snout of the Chonbarden glacier. The glacier is covered in moraine at this point and the trail follows a pressure ridge to Glacier camp.
Day 12: Free day in Glacier Camp
Day 13: Trek Glacier Camp - Dhaulagiri Base Camp
There is a rough trail along the glacier marked by cairns to Dhaulagiri base camp. From the camp one can see Dhaulagiri I and Little Eiger, further to the west lies Dhaulagiri II (7,751m) and IV (7,618m). In season there are likely to be many expeditions on the moraine strip at base camp, one can also the start of the climbing route above the icefall descending from the col between Dhaulagiri and Tukuche Peak.
