Round Dhaulagiri trek is one of most difficult, adventurous and very interesting treks. This trek is wildest, most remote and breathtaking. This trek requires a good trekking experience and a good physical form. In low altitude there are villages and valleys.
The trek route passes through dense forest of rhododendron, oak, deciduous trees and juniper. The trail crosses Myagdi Glacier, Dhaulagiri Base Camp, French pass to hidden snowy valley then after Thapa or Dhampus pass towards Jomsom and Muktinath. Thapa/Dhampus peak expedition is another attraction. Kali Gandaki Gorge (deepest in the world) separate the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna range. Sceneries from this route are the massive of Daulagiris and Annapurnas.

Nepal has been on my bucket list for a long time. When a friend asked me if I would like to join her trekking and camping group, I jumped at the opportunity. I found out that the trail would be low level and will be below the Himalayan base camp.
The Himalayan Sunrise Trekking & Expedition company provided excellent services throughout the 10 day trek.
The guides are knowledgeable and very aware of the trekkers' needs and comfort. The owner Bishnu is particularly flexible in accommodating unforeseen circumstances. One trekker in the group had an injured knee yet she still wanted to participate in the trek. Bishnu hired a horse and its handler to assist her mobility!
The food was delicious and plentiful enough to satisfy the hungriest of stomachs after a long day of trekking.
Bishnu was also conscious of the campsite security. He had his team conduct rounds through the night. The special touch I most appreciated was the provision of a warm, wet face cloth after a long trek - how very refreshing!
This was my first experience in trekking. I found all the guides were very helpful and anticipatory. One of them was always walking by my side, to assist me when I needed a hand. I was very grateful.
It was an amazing experience to see the Himalayas first hand and to meet the cheerful Nepalese.
I give this tour company a 5 STARS rating.
