Around Dhaulagiri ( 20 Days / 19 Nights )
 

One of the remaining truly remote treks it goes behind the massif of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167 m.), and the seventh highest mountain in the world into remote areas rarely visited by anyone.

Fly form Kathmandu to Pokhara and drive to Beni and then trek up the Myagdi Khola (river) valley to the Italian Base Camp (so named because the first Italian expedition to Dhaulagiri used this site for their base camp) and then traverse the "French Col” or Hidden Valley (where you may come across the remains of an aircraft which was used in support of a Austrian-Swiss expedition but, was abandoned here after it crashed) to climb out of the valley via the Dhampus Pass into the Kali Gandaki river valley at Marpha before trekking to Jomsom and flying out to Pokhara and Kathmandu.

This is a hard trek but the views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, the peaks of the Annapurna massif and lesser peaks like Nilgiri are absolutely stunning, the location is truly off-the-beaten-track and the wilderness is unspoilt.
