Dhaulagiri trekking is a great and very diverse trek which includes the taste of combined trekking environments starting from low farmlands to green fertile and to the arid & treeless valleys to the dense forests following high snow capped ridges. Dhaulagiri trek is one of the mesmerizing and fascinating adventure trials of Nepal enclosed by Nepal-Eco-Adventure. Geographically, this region is a land of dramatic contrast. It is an overwhelming adventure from the remote west of Dhaulagiri to the main popular Trans Himalayan a Salt Trade route and through the world's deepest gorge of Kali-Gandaki Valley. And ending of this wonderful adventure is at Pokhara via the scenic route of Annapurna region which is another merit of trekking. This trail explores long kept secrets, like the Gandaki Gorge, the deepest Gorge in the world and the pristine valley of Myagdi. This trial offers the panoramic view of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), the seventh highest mountain in the world with its massive mountains range consisting of fifteen 7000 meter peaks is breathtaking.

Dhaulagiri trekking provides you a lifelong experience of snow and glacier walking, especially around Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri North base camp and crosses the two high passes - the French pass (5,240m) and the Thapa pass (5,155m). This trial also provides you a spectacular views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Thorong peak, Mt. Annapurna and picturesque Kali Gandaki River with the world deepest gorge. Dhaulagiri circuit offers the majestic hidden snow valley which gives a heavenly test of white world along with Dhampus Pass between Tukuche peak and Thapa peak in haven. So, we guarantee the reservation of your satisfactions during this Dhaulagiri trekking from Nepal-Eco-Adventure.

The vast area of this circuit screens the hidden river, upstream, ferns and Oak forest and other deciduous trees and juniper forest. The rhododendron forest and many species of flowers are abundantly found throughout the trail. This region is home to hundreds of species of rare plants and animals, including the snow leopard and blue or Tibetan sheep. During the trail, you may also encounter semi-wild yak herds, mountain sheep in the remote valleys of this region. Besides the wild nature, Dhaulagiri circuit also offers you lonely but sensational shops and tea-houses with respectful service. This Dhaulagiri trekking also explores lifestyle of ethnic people such as Gurung, Chhetri, Thakali and Magars and their unique cultures and tradition with varieties of rituals.

“My girlfriend and i managed to squeeze the Annapurna Circuit into 10 Days in Dec 16. We began the adventure at Chamje, trekking on foot all the way past Thorong La Pass to Muktinath. The rest of the journey was via shared jeep and local bus to Pokhara. Was a very fulfilling trip with clear blue skies and awesome mountain views along the way. It was challenging both physically and mentally but we truly enjoyed ourselves!”

“I only have great things to say about Nepal Eco Adventure. Me and two friends decided to trek to Everest Base Camp over Christmas. I contacted Chhatra and he was professional, knowledgeable, and very quick to respond. He was able to accommodate our group for the dates we wanted at a great price, and was able to advise on logistics and gear. All safety concerns were addressed beforehand, so we arrived in Nepal ready for an amazing adventure.

Throughout the trek, the guides and porters were incredible. They made sure we were all well fed and had everything we needed for a great trip. I had the unfortunate situation of becoming sick early on in the trek. I had terrible gastric issues followed by symptoms of acute mountain sickness and, in the end, needed to be heli-rescued from the Everest region (Note: this is rare- so don't let that deter you!). The guides Ramesh and Nik monitored me the whole time and put my wellness as their priority. I was taken to a hospital in Kathmandu where Ramesh and Chhatra checked in with me regularly and made sure I was okay. After I recovered in hospital, I now had a few days free, so Chhatra helped me arrange a side trip with Ramesh to Pokhara and Austalian Camp to view the Annapurna Mountain Range at sunrise. All to say, the care and consideration from Chattra and his team were there the entire time I was in Nepal, and they made sure my trip would be a memorable one despite having to cut the trek short.

If you're looking for prompt and attentive correspondence; very experienced and personable guides; and a team with a high level of service who makes your health and safety their main priority, then I definitely recommend booking with Nepal Eco Adventure. You will not be disappointed.”

“My friend and I, both in our 30s, booked a Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Eco Adventures and quite frankly we absolutely loved it.

Before the trek, Chatra, the founder, was clear and friendly in his emails to us, and on arrival in Kathmandu he was even easier and more charming to deal with - not least because his English is exceptional. He answered all our questions about our trek to put our minds at ease, and he was flexible enough to adjust the dates of our trek to fit around our travel commitments. Really good guy.

For the trek itself it'd probably be a euphemism to say it was challenging. The first few days of the trek are 10 to 12 hours over tough terrain, with steep inclines, rocky trails and lots of exciting but slightly trouser-darkening steel rope bridges. The pictures we took during those days were incredible, but if you're afraid of heights you're going to have to give yourself a stern talking to to get through.

Beyond that, things start to get easier as you get higher up, as you need time to adjust to the rising altitude. The trekking time per day drops to around 3 to 4 hours, and it means you have plenty of time to play some cards or have a beer with other trekkers in the evening.

From there, around day 10 or 11 you're onto the summit walk, and some truly breathtaking views of 8,000m peaks, blue glaciers and expansive frozen lakes. You'll have earned them too, and the scenery from the larkye pass all the way down to Bhimtang to Dharapani are a stunning reward for your efforts.

The teahouses you'll stay in throughout the trip are basic, and you'll hear this word a lot in the run up to the trip. But the reality is they're okay and certainly better than staying in a tent. There's often a mattress, good food and a toilet you can use, and electrical plugs for charging phones and cameras. If you're very lucky there's occasionally a hot shower and Wi-Fi and even a seated toilet as well, but don't hold your breath. Except when you're in one of those toilets, that is.

For our trip we were assigned Arun Karki as our guide and we couldn't have hoped for a better companion for our trip. Everything we asked for he could find for us, and if he couldn't find it he'd be really straight and honest about why. He was always pro-active in his thinking about what we would need, and took time out every day to tell us about the flora fauna and culture of Nepal as it passed us by. He took great pictures of us too and was happy to share them with us which was fun. He was able to joke around with us and have a laugh while never taking his eye off the ball of our needs and wishes. A really great guy who we have no hesitation in recommending.

Overall the manaslu trek is a real treat. Tough, but rewarding, and from everyone we spoke to on the way a much better route to take than Annapurna or Everest Base Camp. The reason is there are just so many fewer people on the trekking days and at times it really feels like you're the first Europeans to be seeing this scenery, it's so private. So if that's the kind of trek you're after, and you feel fit enough to deal with the teahouses and the longer days, the Nepal Eco Adventures company is an absolutely stellar choice.”
