Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek - Overview

The Dhaulagiri circuit is a difficult trek in the slopes of the magnificent Dhaulagiri peak, which, at a staggering height of 8167 meters, is the 7th highest mountain peak in the world.

This Dhaulagiri trek is a camping trek and it’s for experienced hikers who love pristine mountain terrain. The Dhaulagiri circuit trek encompasses a variety of extremely beautiful Himalayan terrain.

Starting at Beni, the trek follows the Myagdi Khola river (originating from Mt. Dhaulagiri) while passing beautiful Magar villages along the way. The first few days are the easiest. Trekkers pass through lush paddy fields while getting a splendid view of the Mt. Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountains. This is completely different terrain from the moraines and glaciers that they will get to see just a few days later. Having passed the relatively low altitude rice terraces, and having climbed for several days, trekkers then pass the Chonbarden gorge to finally reach the Dhaulagiri Base Camp (4,750 m).

The next day is the most difficult and thrilling one on the entire trek. Trekkers now have a grueling climb through the French Pass ahead of them. The French Pass, at an altitude of 5,360 m, leads to the Hidden Valley, a splendid valley with numerous camping spots and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

It’s recommended to only attempt this trek from late September to October, or April to early June, when the trails are relatively snow-free. No technical climbing skills or special equipment is needed to do this trek. Nevertheless, it is a must to be physically fit.

Dhaulagiri Circuit - Safety considerations:

  • All trekking agencies available at Bookmundi.com take safety seriously and are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback. They will therefore go through safety considerations with you during your pre-trek meeting. However, please note the following particulars for the Dhaulagiri circuit trek: This trek unavoidably includes very steep rises in altitude because of the limited camping site options. Hence, careful acclimatization is needed at every stage. The trekking agencies will keep this fact in mind, and take measures to ensure your safety during the trek.
  • Guides and porters are necessary on the Dhaulagiri Circuit trek.
  • The Dhaulagiri circuit should not be attempted during the winter season. There is a lot of snow even on the main circuit and finding the trail becomes difficult, and there is significant avalanche dangers as well during winter. During the monsoon season there will be risk of rocks falling down on some sections of the trail, so it's not advisable to trek it during the monsoon season either. This trek should therefore only be attempted from late September to October and April-early June.
