About Dhaulagiri Round Trekking

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is a kind of classic trek of Nepal. Dhaulagiri Round Trek also known as Strenuous Camping Trek begins from the foothills of Himalaya and it goes thoroughly up unfolding beauties of varied landscapes.The trekking routes of Dhaulagiri passes through two big mountains located above 5000m i.e 5360 meter French pass and the 5200 meter Thapa pass.The view of Dhaulagiri gradually appears which gets closer everyday as you keep on moving up. There are various things to witness in the coffer of Dhaulagiri like French Col, the Hidden Valley and Dhampus. Besides Dhaulagiri, the view of Annapurna Massif in the west and Manaslu will capture your heart. The scenic beauty witnessed here in Dhaulagiri Base Camp is not expressed in word but simply realized. The specialty of Dhaulagiri Round Trek is that it gives an opportunity to view 15 mountains of over 7000 meters including Putali Himal, Tukuche Peak and Dhaulagiri Peak itself.

Dhaulagiri Round Trek is an amazing & remarkable experience of life which passes through alpine terrain. In comparison to other treks of Nepal especially Annapurna Region Trekking, Dhaulagiri Trek is more physical and challenging adventure trek as it tests trekker's stamina and endurance.Trek to Dhaulagiri Base Camp is fully tented camp trek that gives you the unforgetable expereince of life time adventure trekking in Nepal Himalayas.

Regulus suggests trekkers to experience Dhaulagiri Round Trek in between September to December and in May to mid-June. This is because during this time the Dhaulagiri trekking trail is snow free and the trekkers get astounding view of various mountains. At other time challenging Dhaulagiri could be dangerous because Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek is a totally challenging adventurous trek in Nepal.  

Falling of rocks sometime makes the trail of Dhaulagiri trek very challenging. The rocks fall like missile from the top of the cliffs and the trekkers walk below the cliff. Regulus again suggests not to go for Dhaulagiri Trek during monsoon because rock falling is frequent at this time.
