“An amazing feel of touch and rejuvenating aura………………..what one can ask for………”

Differentiated from the Annapurna district by the Kali Gandaki the Dhaulagiri massif incorporates more than 30 tops over 6000 meters, eight of these surpassing 8000 meters. The region around Tansen is home to the Magar individuals and capital of the free kingdoms to wind up a piece of Nepal.

From Dhorepatan the display of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri reaches is extraordinary and this remote region is home to neighborhoods of Tibetan outcasts who scan the territory for minerals and medicinal plants.

This is a long, troublesome trek around Dhaulagiri (8167m) that begins from Beni on the Kali Gandaki. Accompany the Myagdi Khola westwards to Darbang and transform north on a minor trail that leads through woods into the high nation. A significant part of the track is on snow and glacial masses as it crosses French Col (5240m), navigates the head of Hidden Valley and crosses 5155m Dhampus Pass. The trek closes with a steep plunge to Marpha and a comeback to Pokhara, either through the Kali Gandaki valley or over the Ghorepani edge for a surrounding perspective of the whole Dhaulagiri massif.
