Trek Overview

This is a long, difficult trek around Dhaulagiri that starts from Beni on the Kali-Gandaki. Follow the Mayagdi Khola westwards to Darbang and turn north on a tiny trail that leads through forests into the high country. Much of the route is on snow and glaciers as it crosses French Pass (5240m.), traverses the head of Hidden Valley, and crosses 5155m Dhumpus pass. The trek ends with a steep descent to Marpha and a return to Pokhara from Jomsom by flight, either via the Kali Gandaki or over the Ghorepani ridge for a panoramic view of the entire Dhaulagiri massif. This trek is camping trek.
