The impressive Dhaulagiri Himalaya is the centerpiece of this strenuous trek. Beginning near Pokhara, riverside trails follow the mountians’s southern and western flanks, leading into the shadow of Dhaulagiri (8167 meters). Gaining elevation, you’ll spend the night at base camp before crossing two 5000 meters+ passes to the Kali Gandaki River valley. This route follows the footsteps of early traders and conquerors. This trek is for the true adventurer, exploring seldom visited and remote corners of central-west Nepal, where few amenities but unspoiled natural beauty are known.
