Trip Description - Round Dhaulagiri Trek

The Dhaulagiri Base Camp Trekking also known as the Round Dhaulagiri Trek is a remote and challenging trek for more adventurous trekkers, circumnavigating Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain in the world. This magnificent peak rises as a giant shoulder of glistening ice and snow. Dhaulagiri is rarely found in the region and the surrounding valleys and villages are intact and unchanged for generations.

Thirty different mountain ranges can be seen from the peak, making it an unparalleled Himalayan panorama point. No climbing experience is required to climb Dhampus Peak other than acclimatization. The general route to the summit follows the west ridge. The ridge also connects the famous Dhampus Pass (5,200 m). A high camp for the summit is erected here, from where climbers proceed to the summit. If you want to get an introductory experience of Himalayan trekking where there are few climbers, opt for Dhampus Peak.

Accommodation offered during the trip

The accommodation we use may vary depending on our package travel and the range of travel destinations. Before or after the trip you can book comfortable hotels in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara for your stay. If you book a tea house trekking trip, we will provide a small two-bed room for sharing in the hill lodges which is a basic facility but very clean.

Now, better-equipped lodges are also available in Annapurna and Everest areas but we recommend trekkers to use accommodation above 3500 meters where clean rooms and clean food are readily available. Sometimes a level of flexibility may be required when trekking in remote mountain areas. We believe that you will complete your vacation without any problems and have the trip of a lifetime. If you book camping/trekking, our camping team will manage a comfortable camping site by the river where possible.

There will usually be a dedicated support team on the trip to move luggage and equipment, set up camp, and prepare your food. You will find more detailed information about travel accommodation which is mentioned separately in the lodging section of each vacation package page.

However, you can expect excellent service and high quality in any budget range you choose. You can learn more about different types of travel and their features and the proposed travel price by contacting us directly where we will be very pleased to answer your questions. We always try to choose comfortable accommodation with local character reflecting the best value based on twin share accommodation.

When you book a trip, unless you request a private single room, we will arrange for you to share a twin bed room with a person of the same gender. If you request a private single room, you will need to pay a single room supplementary fee. Please note that during the trek, if the destination is 4000 meters above sea level, only dormitory accommodation with private beds will be available. On trekking trips we try our best but do not promise guaranteed room options. For most of our camping trips, we supply branded two-person tents, including groundsheets.

Mess tent, kitchen tent, toilet tent, service plates, bowls, and all necessities are provided. Members of the mountaineering travel group are requested to manage according to the options given on the website.
