Highlights

 
     

    The Dhaulagiri area of Western Nepal is an amazing region to trek through. And for 21 days, we would like to guide you on an unforgettable journey through it.

    This 3 week trek is a challenging one. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition. There is also some difficult climbs involved in the trek as well, some of which involve rope work, so some previous trekking experience is beneficial as well. However, because of the more challenging nature of this adventure, you will be able to venture into areas, other, less experienced people do not see.

    You will have the chance to see everything from enormous glaciers like the Chhondarban glacier. You will also get to trek along beautiful rivers, through amazing forests, and even see the world’s deepest gorge, the Gandaki gorge.

    Throughout this trip, you will also have the opportunity to not only visit, but spend considerable time in several local Nepalese villages. Thus giving you an opportunity to learn about the country’s wonderful local culture. There are even 2 short, but breathtaking flights through the Himalayas to enjoy as well, not to mention several days in the city of Kathmandu!

    However, when it comes to trekking in Nepal, the first thing people think about is the enormous peaks they can see. And rest assured in the Dhaulagiri area, you will get to not only see some of the most impressive peaks in the world, including Annapurna south (7,219m) and the Tukuche peak (6,920m), but you will also get to climb one, the beautiful Thapa peak (6,012m).

    Trekking through the Dhaulagiri area of Nepal is a true wonder. So send us a request, and join us for 3 weeks on a trip you will never forget.

    Would you like to experience an equally amazing, but much less strenuous trekking adventure in Nepal? If so, join us on this 11 day light trek through Annapurna.
