Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek
The Dhaulagiri trek is a gorgeous, remote and in an off the beaten path area of Nepal. It doesn’t attract the crowds that the more popular treks attract. It’s mostly camping but there may be some days where we can find a tea house (my guide is looking into that now so I may have some updates). The Mountain Company (Not Me!) has a good PDF about the trek here: https://www.themountaincompany.co.uk/assets/TMC_DhaulagiriCircuit_TripDossier_181_108.pdf
The cost will depend on the number of people and a few other unknowns. But figure around $2500 for everything. There’s also a possibility of adding on the Dhampus Peak trekking peak. The trek will start with a flight to Pokhara then a drive to Beni on Saturday, 24 March. There’s a possibility of driving to Beni directly from Kathmandu (7 or 8 hours). Back in Kathmandu on 12 or 13 April. The guide and porters are all arranged. They are very skilled and experienced people that I’ve used on previous treks.
I’m an experienced trekker and I love the Himalayas! This will be my 16th trek in the Himalayas.
From my experience, the ideal number of people for a trek 4-5. There’s a two person minimum required for the trekking permits.
If we decide to do the Dhampus Peak it will require a special permit.Reply
