Holiday Overview

Dhaulagiri Trek with Dhampus peak provides to you a unique insight into the world of the seventh highest mountain in the world, the Dhaulagiri. Being the seventh highest top in the world, it has a significant fascination and fan club of its own and therefore invites a number of intriguing tourists to its heart every season, every year. Dhaulagiri Trek with Dhampus peak is not an easy trek and certainly not for everyone, especially not for the first-timers and people with no training of the basic mountaineering course. Consequently, even though popular, the trek invites the trekkers who are hardcore lovers of the challenges and off beaten paths. It is also a very nice place to meet like-minded buddies, and the bonds that develop in mountains often last forever. The Dhaulagiri massif, the soul of the Dhaulagiri Trek with Dhampus peak, is a magnanimously spellbinding place. You’ll catch some of the most mesmerizing scenes of the mountain landscapes. Ironically, the tougher the mountain, the more beautiful it appears to be. You can catch some unseen and unforgettable sights of both the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna. The Dhaulagiri Trek with Dhampus peak is full of panoramic vistas, and gruesome passes like the French pass and the Dhampus pass, both of which are above the heights of 5,000 meters. The maximum elevation that you climb in this trek is 6,012 meters, which in itself speaks pages about its toughness and demanding nature. The Dhaulagiri Trek with Dhampus peak lets you soak in the eccentrically appealing sights of thick forests, chirping birds, beautiful flowers, the Kali Gandaki valley, the Magar and Firing regions, etc. You’d be so much close to the natural inhabitants and the Nepali culture that you’d feel yourself growing abundant in spirituality and cultural values as much you excel in your mountaineering techniques. You’d also hear great stories about the places and Sherpas, who have proved to be a godsend to a lot of people who were caught in some trouble while trekking. The Sherpas consider these mountains their homes and God, and they’d spare no means to let you feel comfortable and strong here. The journey begins from Kathmandu. Kathmandu is a very affluent place in terms of cultural heritage and royal remnants. You can see the living goddess here and also visit the sacred monasteries and temples here. If you are a little astray on the spiritual side and want to rather enjoy drinks and spa, you can have plenty of options here. Almost every street in Kathmandu has massage and spa options, with their most popular package being the one for youth and renewal. We also go to the lake paradise Pokhara and a number of other interesting and mesmerizing places. The fluttering flags speak motivation when you’d feel heavy, the glacial glaciers will inspire you as you begin to get tired and the giant mountains will never let go of your hand and mindfulness, and with that, your Sherpa guide will keep you straight and strong on the route. If you have what it takes, WELCOME TO DHAULAGIRI.
