Dhaulagiri trek is one of most adventure trek in Nepal.This trek has high altitude pass like -French pass(5365m),Thapa pass(5244m),Dhampus pass(4915m)Trekking around Dhaulagiri is an exceptional trek the passes through staggering alpine terrain. Until recently few trekkers ever attempted it but now foreign trekking companies advertise it along side standard treks. It isn't standard, being tough and demanding and has shocked many trekkers who expected something similar to the Annapurna Circuit or the Everest trek. It is better labelled as an extreme route; extreme, because you need a rope and should also take ice-axe and crampons. Going without a guide It is very difficulty.With its extended high altitude nature it should only be attempted when snow-free, from late September to December or perhaps May and early June. This means don't go during March or April, these times can be particularly unpredictable and dangerous.This trek begins at the lowlands of Baglung inhabited by the Brahmins and Chhetries. In the trek, come across the Gurung and Magar Tribes. Beginning from Sal and Pristine Pine forest, the trail foes to barren lands from where we embark on mountain experience with the exquisite Dhaulagiri in front of us. We cross the French Pass and then the Dhampus Pass which offers the breath-taking view of the Dhaulagiri Range, the Annapurna Range, Nilgiri and a look at the deepest gorge in the world, the Kaligandaki gorge.  the trek finish at Marpha then after it takes 3 days way to Ghorepani/Poonhill to come back in Pokhara.
