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.
Our guides were really friendly and besides guiding they also played cards and talked with us after a day of hard trekking, something we really appreciated.
The personal service and nice people at the office in Kathmandu complemented this trip to a great experience.
Even though it was low season, the temperature in the lower regions was around 20 degrees celsius, so please bring some clothes for those temperatures too.”

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
