Trekking in Nepal with a wide-ranging itinerary. The trek around the Dhaulagiri massif offers extraordinary views of some of Nepal’s most spectacular and wild peaks.
The journey begins in Beni, a village at the confluence of Khali Gandaki and Myagi Khola, west of Pokhara. Go up the Myagi Khola west to Phalai Gaon, then deviate north towards the Dhaulagiri massif.
Then you reach the Dhaulagiri base camp where you stop for a whole day to rest and prepare for the climb to the French Pass (5300 meters). To the west the impressive chain of Dhaulagiri II, III, IV, V and VI accompanies the journey for kilometers in this upper part of the Myagi Khola.
You then continue towards the Thapa Pass (5250 meters), from which you can enjoy the magnificent view of Tilicho and Annapurna. From here, head south, descending the Khali Gandaki, the deepest valley in the world, to Tatopani. Then you leave the valley until you reach Birethanti where the bus will take you back to Kathmandu.
Arrival in Kathmandu. Meeting at the airport with our correspondent and transfers to the hotel.
Free city view day.
Transfer to Beni. Departure from Kathmandu in private vehicle and transfer to Pokhara; from here, by 4x4 vehicle, transfer to Beni, a small village located at the confluence of the Kali Gandaki and Myagdi valleys.
Transfer by 4x4 vehicle to the village of Darbang (1180 m.) and start of the trek along the Myagdi valley. Go up the valley through Magar villages and cultivated fields with a path that rises slowly. The field is placed in Dharapani, a village that can be reached with a last stretch of steep path.
The trail now climbs north-north-east along beautiful terraced slopes. You pass through some picturesque villages, such as that of Muri; the view towards the Dhaulagiri group II, III and IV is beautiful. Overnight stay in a camp in Bagar.
The path gradually lowers over the river and enters a dense forest, alternating ups and downs and clearings in a magnificent setting. The field is placed in one of these clearings, in a splendid position.
The path continues to rise with some river crossings on log bridges and after a short time you have the first sight of the western buttresses of Dhaulagiri...an impressive sight. You leave the thickest forest to put the field in a beautiful space protected by a fir forest.
The path leaves the vegetated area to go up wide slopes at the foot of the west wall of Dhaulagiri. The camp site is in a truly panoramic position and perfect for stopping.
A complete rest day is made here to allow for proper acclimatization. It is possible to make some nice excursions around the field.
The path first descends on the moraine of the glacier and then goes up on the opposite side by remounting the orographic right of the Myagdi valley. On morainic debris you climb the glacier and get up admiring the impressive west face of the Dhaulagiri to the east which juts out onto the glacier. The camp is placed on the moraine, before reaching the Dhaulagiri base camp.
You continue to climb the glacier until you reach the base camp. Hence the view of the Dhaulagiri and its huge north-west buttress is breathtaking. Field on moraine.
You go up on moraine first, and then up to snow along the long and tiring slope that leads to the French Pass (5360 m.). The view from the pass is magnificent, with the majestic Dhaulagiri in the south-west and the vast expanses that lead to Dolpo in the north. You go down on snow towards the Hidden Valley where you put the camp.
Long day of walking that begins early in the morning with the ascent to the Dhampus Pass (5258 m.) and continues until the exit from the snowy fields that gradually descend to the beautiful village of Marpha, where you will stay overnight. The panorama in the upper part offers magnificent views of the Nilgiri group.
With a quiet and short stop along the Kali Gandhaki you reach Jomsom, the main center of the Kali Gandhaki valley. Overnight stay at the lodge.
