Dhaulagiri Trekking offers some of the best off-the-beaten treks around Mt. Dhaulagiri consisting of fifteen 7000 meter peaks that are magnificent around it. Trekking of the main paths is not only possible but can be immensely rewarding, though you do need a sense of venture and an increased ability to deal with the unexpected. Geographically, it is a land of dramatic contrast. Dhaulagiri range offer visitors all the pictorial splendor of the Annapurnas, yet the area is less visited by tourists and less developed in general. For some, this adds to its appeal. Lying in the western half of Nepal, the range is bordered on the east by the Kali Gandaki, a unique river that pre-dates the Himalayas and carved the deepest gorge in the world during their uplift. North of the range, in their rain shadow, lies the mystical land of Dolpo.
Dhaulagiri Trekking is an extremely adventurous trip around the massive Dhaulagiri range (8,167m/26,780ft), the world’s seventh-highest peak. The relatively long remote trek lies in the Myagdi District, west of the Annapurna range. Also known as Dhaulagiri Round Trek, this is the most challenging yet most utterly beautiful off-beaten trek in Nepal.
