Overview A circuit of the Dhaulagiri massif is possible for well-equipped and self-sufficient. Parties. The minimum time that should be allowed for this itinerary is eighteen days. Pokhara to Pokhara but a few extra days to side trip or bad weather are advisable. The route crosses two high passes which are in remote country far from any assistance. Particular care must be taken with regards to proper acclimatization and staff equipment. Since much of the first half of the trek travels on rarely trekked trails, the services of experienced local guide are highly recommended. No special permits are required for the Dhaluagiri Circuit but for the last part, down the Kali Gandaki, an ACAPentry permit is needed.


The trek is best started at Beni, the district headquarter of the Myagdi district. Myagdi is one of the most easterly of the district where the Magar people can be found..this group of hill dwellers are similar in many ways to their Gurungneighbours but are thought to have settled in Nepal some time earlier. Like their Gurung cousins, the Magar have a tradition of servicein the Gurkha regiments. Regular bus services operate from Pokhara as far as Baglung and from there, are less frequent services to Beni.

The Dhaulagiri trail follows the MyagdiKhola, the river that drains the southern side of the Dhaulagiri massif. Passing through the settlements of Darbang and Muri, the country is stillquite heavily populated with scattered villages and farming land. Beyond Muri, the MyagdiKholaawings north and the landscape become much more rugged and sparsely populated. The tree line is reached just below the side of the, so-called, Italian Base Camp. Italian base camp, located at the snout of the ChhonbaraanGlicier, is an ideal placeto spend an acclimatization day exploring the hills around about. The next two days are spent on the glacier, the second night being at Dhasulagiri Base Camp, a rugged spot with some spectacular views of the western face of Dhaulagiri.
