Around Dhaulagiri Trek

This trek is very remote wilderness area, up the Myagdi Khola valley, behind the gigantic Dhaulagiri. The French Pass and Dhampus pass can be crossed during favorable weather conditions. The notoriously unpredictable weather near Dhaulagiri, Camping in Hidden Valley can be very risky, where a sudden weather change might block the route to Kali Gandaki. The crossing of these passes can normally be made in early autumn or in late spring.

2. Continue down the Kali Gandaki Valley, via Ghorapani, ending the trek at Birethanti, New Bridge, drive to Pokhara (19 days trekking)
