Dhaulagiri Trekking


Dhaulagiri Trekking

Dhaulagiri Trekking is the most daunting yet the most beautiful trekking route of Nepal. If you are great lover of Mountains, hill, glaciers, forests and villages then the package is best for you. Nepal Hiking Himalaya presents trekkers this tranquil and challenging trekking route.


Dhaulagiri Trekking is often considered as the hidden Valley. Trekking is very challenging because it requires the passing of the Himalayan passes at an altitude of 5320m (French Pass) and 5200m (Dhampus Pass). Besides crossing these passes the camp site of this trekking is highly prone of stone falling as well. The base camp of Dhaulagiri and glacier camp site offers the absolute authentic wilderness adventure feeling. Having said that it is very strenuous to do Dhaulagiri Trekking the fun factor is equally interesting.

Best Off the beaten trekking route of Nepal


The existence of very limited settlements makes the route of Dhaulagiri Trek mesmerizing and tranquil. Moreover, it is the best off the beaten trek route. 


The trekking route at some point of time takes you to the narrowest gorges as well. The newly opened Gandaki Gorge can be very picturesque. Witness the unrivaled sceneries of the mountains and the hilly landscapes in Dhaulagiri trekking. During your trekking the acclimatization in the Italian Base Camp endows the best views of the mountains.


This would help you spark your creativity and let all your drabness from the routine life fly away. We wonder sometimes to have the desolate path adventure. This trekking package is the best option. From Thakali to the Tibetan culture and from mountains to the hills you can find all the constituents of great travelling.


Trek with us and discover the magnificent Dhaulagiri region of Nepal in the best competitively priced package. Nepal Hiking Himalaya would be your reliable trekking companion throughout you journey to Nepal. Dhaulagiri Trekking definitely ignites all to explore the alternative destinations of Nepal.
