The trek was great and on reflection, perhaps enjoyed it more than any other trek I’ve been on.

Our Dhaulagiri Circuit trek in April and October 2017 are now both guaranteed to run, please get in touch soon with us soon if you would like to join this group.
There is an option to climb Dhampus Peak at an altitude of 6,060m for those with previous mountaineering experience. If you like to climb Dhampus Peak there is an extra charge to cover the cost of the climbing permit.
The Mountain Company has organised eight successful treks around Dhaulagiri Circuit since Spring 2008 for more information on these went please click on "View Trip Reports" button above.
Our leader Adrian Summers successfully trekked Dhaulagiri Circuit in October 2016 and has posted his superb photos in a slideshow online on Adobe Spark at "Dhaulagiri Round: Trekking around the Dhaulagiri massif crossing the French col and Dhampus pass"
Dhaulagiri Circuit trek explores a wild, remote and off-the-beaten-track area of the Nepal Himalaya. The trek starts at Beni and then follows the Myagdi Khola river passing through beautiful Gurung villages with terraced fields framed by views of the Dhaulagiri massif.
After walking up the narrow Chonbarden gorge towards Dhaulagiri Base Camp we then cross French Pass into Hidden Valley. After crossing Dhampus Pass we start the long descent to Jomsom and then at the end of the trek we fly out to Pokhara.
