Trip Introduction

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.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Dhaulagiri circuit trek is a strenuous trek. Trekkers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day on an uphill and downhill trail and basic climbing skills will consider this trip fulfilling and enjoyable. It is a good idea to prepare for the Dhaulagiri trek by jogging and exercising regularly at least for a month prior to the start. Trekking around Dhaulagir should be relatively fine for those who have experience in trekking in high altitudes. Determination, good physical health, positive attitude and average physical fitness are good preconditions for a successful accomplishment of the climbing. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skills are required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Utmost Adventure before booking the trek.

Best Time to Travel

The best time for trekking to the Dhaulagiri circuit is during spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). The temperature is moderate and guarantees amazing views throughout the trip.
