The Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is a challenging trip that traverses over the technical high passes and extremely isolated valleys. The trek lies in northwest Nepal, adjacent to the Annapurna region. Mostly Magar people have historically inhabited this region. Dhaulagiri Mountain (8167m) is the 7th highest peak in the world and it is the main attraction of the Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek. The beautiful landscape can be seen from the start of the Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek. Following the bank of the Myagdi stream, we walk crossing various villages as Babiyachaur, Dharapani and Muri.We get to experience village lifestyle and view the terraced hillsides. We continue climbing, gaining altitude. The path follows glaciers and goes through difficult, but thrilling mountain passes, including the French Pass (5360 meter) and Thapa Pass (5200 meter). It is a challenging walk on an icy track. The massive Dhaulagiri mountain range consists of fifteen 7000 meter peaks and is magnificent. The trail is a challenge, but the result is rewarding and the views are unforgettable. Finally, the trek touches the trail of the Jomsom Muktinath Trek through the Kali Gandaki gorge. This place is a less rain falling area and a popular route for the religious travellers. Reaching to Jomsom, the district headquarters of Mustang, you fly back to Pokhara and conclude the trek by either driving or flying back to Kathmandu.
