The mountain stands at 8,170 m altitude in Myagdi district at the Northwest of Pokhara and in the east Annapurna massif. The Dhaulagiri Trek is a challenging circuit trekking that includes a crossing of the two high passes French pass 5240 m and Dhampus pass 5155 m.

Perfectly blended with walking over the extreme snow and glaciers, the Dhaulagiri Circuit trip is filled with enticing extreme adventure. Further, the Dhaulagiri region offers a rare dramatic view of a standoff between the ever imposing Annapurna massif and Mt. Dhaulagiri.

Dhaulagiri is very sacred to the locals. It is also one of the most exciting and pretty interesting peaks for travelers and mountaineers around the globe in terms of its unique ecosystem and features. The tramp through the deepest gorge in the world – the Kaligandaki River gorge adds new challenges. Likewise, the stunning views of the majestic mountains – Machhapuchhre, Nilgiri, Dhampus, and Annapurna Massif and its minions are another major feature of the Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek.

Dhaulagiri Circuit- An elusive Trekking Journey

Dhaulagiri Circuit trekking is off the beaten tracks. The trek takes you into the exciting and adventure remote highlands, rugged terrain with amazing natural beauties. The Dhaulagiri round trek is an exhilarating and adventurous circuit trekking. You will also get the first-hand pleasure of receiving a warm welcome and hospitality from the ethnic locals–Gurung, Thakali, and Magar, etc. of this region. Still, the most elusive trekking route, very few trekkers dare with high adrenaline and passion for adventures take this adventurous trek. The Dhaulagiri Base Camp trekking is comparatively expensive, for we organize it in camping style. It is one of the most rewarding and worthy trekking destinations.

The Dhaulagiri Base Camp journey starts with an exciting drive to Beni. And, you start the actual trekking the day after from Beni. First, you pitch for the warm and vibrant villages of Darbang, Muri, and Chariban. Then reach the Italian base camp and the mighty Dhaulagiri Base camp. On the route, you will pass the great mountain passes–the French pass and Dhampus pass. From here, you will take descent down to the Marpha and join the Annapurna Circuit route for the return route. So get ready to go on a circuit trekking in the Dhaulagiri region with Heaven Himalaya. With the experts in the field, you will have everything arranged and you will have a smooth trekking experience.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.

Incredible Scenery and Service

I trekked up to Basecamp with Ram and his Heaven Himalaya team last year and had incredible Scenery and Service. The scenery is just awesome, and Ram took amazing care of everyone in our group. He kept us all entertained and motivated and most importantly, healthy. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Best Experience Ever, Thank You Ram

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the mountains. We made the Three Passes Trek in the Everest region. I can certainly say that it was the ultimate outdoor experience we have ever had, simply astonishing. I'm also very sure that a great part of enjoying that experience the way we did was thanks to our guide (Ram). He's a highly expert in the mountains and more importantly a great person with a big heart and always a smile to offer.

Everest Base Camp Trek

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek back in Nov’18 and it was an awesome experience. My guide, Ram was fantastic, very knowledgeable, and professional. He was very good in all the preparations that he made and was very attentive to my needs. He was very thorough explaining all parts of the trek and he took good care of me, especially I was exhausted on the last day of the trek, he pushed and helped me out to ensure I made it to EBC. I highly recommend going with Ram if you ever wanted to do any treks in Nepal.
