Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking leads you through the isolated and glacial part, which is one of the mist technical trekking routes in Nepal. It is situated in the northwestern part of Nepal that is adored by the adventure lovers. The icy path, heap of snow and several days through the alpine altitude offer a challenge to complete the foothill excursion. Previous alpine trekking experience is essential for the trek to deal the slippery trail.

Trek along the Round Dhaulagiri trail begins from Beni, the district center of Myagdi. Then it goes through the ethnic villages, especially that of the Magar communities. The cultural exploration and the easy trek gradually take the adventurous form as you walk higher and the slippery path begins. Walking through the jaw dropping rocky boulder, you need to balance your feet with attentive ascending along with descending. Multiple days beyond the human settlements above 5000 meters altitude is more adventurous. During the trek, you cross various high passes, including the French Col, Thapa pass and Dhampus Pass. The Himalayan sceneries of Mt. Dhaulagiri I, Mt. Dhaulagiri II, Mt. Dhaulagiri III, Mt. Dhaulagiri IV and Mt. Dhaulagiri V can be explored brilliantly. The concluding part of the trek adjoins Mustand region and ultimately it ends in the Lower Annapurna region via Ghorepani and Poon Hill.
