Round Dhaulagiri Trekking is separated from Annapurna Mountain range by Kaligandaki River and its gorge (deepest gorge on planet).
Dhaulagiri (8167m), the seventh highest mountain on earth, is situated with fifteen above 7000m peaks.
Trekking around Dhaulagiri is relatively strenuous and need some high altitude trekking experiences.
About 3 weeks trek around white peak start from Pokhara, offers a verdant valley amidst cultivated fields, and passes through the rhododendron and alpine forests and meadows with high passes, hot spring, waterfall, and plenty of stunning scenery.
Then it cuts through thick forets with magnificent glimpses of the Himalaya before leading us over the French Col ( 5240m ) into Hidden valley . It then crosses the Dhampus Pass ( 5155m ) bringing us to Marpha and returnto Pokhara via the Ghorepani ridgefor a final panoramic view of the entire Dhaulagiri range.
This trek avoids the main trail and therefore is quite strenuous and demanding.
