This remote and challenging trek for the more adventurous walker circles Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain in the world. This white mountain towers in its solitary splendor, a giant shoulder of shining ice and snow. Dhaulagiri is rarely visited and the valleys and villages surrounding it are unspoiled and unchanged. Our trek takes us across the Kali Gandaki River valley and then north into the heart of its Base camp. At the high point of our trek, we cross the traverse of French Pass at 5,360 metres, the hidden Valley and Dhampus Pass at 5182 metres, which brings us to the upper Kali Gandaki Valley in Jomsom. From here we either fly or trek back to Pokhara.
