Dhaulagiri Trek
Dhaulagiri, often known as White Mountain, stands at an altitude of 8167meters. The highest peak in western Nepal, Dhaulagiri is separated from the Annapurna circuit by the Kali Gandaki River, the deepest gorge in the world.

Though long and strenuous, the trek is very rewarding. You can either drive to Beni from Kathmandu or take a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara and then go to Beni which is the starting point of your trek. On the second day continue your trek to Tatopani (Hot spring). You will be amazed to find some really good food at Totopani. Trek to Babiyachaur from Tatopani before you stop for the night. The third day of your journey to Durbang from Tatopani follows another six days passing through Sibang, Muri, Bagar, Dovan and Sallahghari before you reach Upper Vungini on the ninth day. Spend the tenth day at Upper Vungini, the Italian base camp, for acclimatization. From Vungini take the trial to Glacier camp, on the eleventh day and then on the twelfth day trek to the Dhaulagiri base camp. On the thirteenth day, Via the French Pass at an altitude of 5,240m, go to the hidden valley. From the hidden valley go to Yak Kharka on the fourteenth day and then take a steep descent to Marpha on the fifteenth day to meet the Kali Gandaki or the Annapurna circuit. Stay overnight at Marpha on the sixteenth day.

From this point you can either trek to Muktinath or spend the next four days returning to Pokhara from Marpha via Kalopani, Tatopani, Ghorepani and Birethanti before heading towards Kathmandu on the twenty-second day. You can also take a shorter route from Tatopani to Beni and then to Baglung. However, the shortest route would be to take a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara before returning to Kathmandu.

Note: October- May is the best time for going trekking to Dhaulagiri.
