Round Dhaulagiri Trek (18 Days)

Round Dhaulagiri Trek
Round Dhaulagiri Trekking is separated from Annapurna Mountain range by Kaligandaki River and it’s George (deepest George on planet). Dhaulagiri (8167 m) the seventh highest mountain on earth is situated with fifteen above 7000 m peaks. Trekking around Dhaulagiri is relatively strenuous and need some high altitude trekking experiences. About 3 weeks trek around white peak offers a verdant valley, cultivated fields, and passes through the rhododendron and alpine forests and meadows with high passes, hot spring, waterfall, and plenty of stunning scenery. This trek avoids the main trail and therefore is quite strenuous and demanding.
