Mt. Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world with an altitude of 8,167m/26,795ft from sea level. It was firstly climbed on 13th May 1960 by a group of Swiss, Austrian & Nepalese expedition team. The word Dhaulagiri came from a Sanskrit word which means white/beautiful/dazzling mountain. Mt. Dhaulagiri is separated by Kaligandaki River and the world’s deepest Kali Gandaki Valley from Annapurna Range where Mt. Annapurna I (8,091m/26,545ft) is the tenth highest mountain in the world.
Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking is one of the challenging, adventurous and longest full camping trek of Nepal. During the trek, we have to cross numerous numbers of high passes such as French pass at 5,360m/17,580ft altitude & Dhampus Pass at 5,240m/17,187ft altitude, explore remote valleys, glaciers, agricultural farmlands as well as dramatic sceneries of many peaks above 7,000m from sea level. This trek is especially suitable for those trekkers who have previous experience of trekking and good physical condition for walking through snow ridges and high valleys, in some high snow paved places there might need to use climbing gears thus would also be better to have a little bit knowledge about climbing gears as well. From the high passes and valleys during our Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking, we can have very close views of Dhaulagiri I (8,167m), Dhaulagiri II (7,751m), Dhaulagiri IV (7,618m), Tukuche Peak (6,920m), Mukut Himal, Sita Chuchura, Tashi Kang, Annapurna, Nilgiri, Dhampus Peak, and many more snow-capped ranges.
