Around Dhaulagiri (White Mountain) is a challenging trek around the Dhaulagiri massif (8167m), the seventh highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri is a long trek that goes far beyond the normal haunts of trekkers and tourists, to remote areas of the country where the landscapes are wild and untamed and where the local inhabitants have seen little change in their way of life for centuries- untouched corners of an increasingly crowded planet. It is physically challenging, likely to include unfavorable weather conditions and strenuous activities, such as, climbing/ scrambling across high passes. The trekking in this area is relatively strenuous and needs some mountaineering knowledge.
The trek start from Beni, after long day drive from Kathmandu going through nice village in the beginning and through high and remote area and trail crosses Myagdi Glacier, trekking into the Dhaulagiri Himal to the Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri Base Camp(4750m), French pass 5360m) providing the excellent view of Putali Himal and Tukuche Peak, the highest point of the trek to hidden snowy valley then after Thapa or Dhampus pass Along the way, there are wonderful view of gigantic face of Dhaulagiri and annapurna range.
