Detail Itinerary

Upon arrival at Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport, we will greet you and assist you to the hotel.  We will meet either later on that day or the next day (as per your comfort) to take you to our head office, where we will brief you on your upcoming trek with us. At that time, we will introduce you to your trekking guide and Sherpa. If your flight arrives on time, we will take you to one of the most popular local restaurants with delicious Nepalese food, cultural music and ethnic dance. This will give you a glimpse into the different ethnic groups of the country. If you arrive late in the evening, we can do this the next day instead.

Day 02: Kathmandu Valley sightseeing and trek preparation (1,300m/4,264 ft)

After breakfast, you will begin a city tour of Kathmandu where you will see the main attractions of the valley. On this tour you will visit the Boudhnath Stupa, Pashupatinath temple, Swyambhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple), and Kathmandu Durbar Square (the old palace). After finishing the city tour, we will meet again to check your clothing and trekking equipment (sleeping bag, jacket and trekking boots). This evening will be spent in Kathmandu.

Day 03: Drive to Beni (850m) by bus 8 hrs walk

After breakfast, you head to Beni by Local Bus. You'll find most of the scenery is very enjoyable along the countryside. Beni is the district headquarters and has a police check post where your trekking permits will be examined. The town is at the confluence of the Myagdi Khola and the Kali Gandaki.

Day 04: Trek to Babiachor (950m) 5 hrs walk

Leaving Beni and Kali Gandaki the trek heads west along the north bank of the Myagdi Khola through the village of Beni Mangalghat to Singa and Tatopani (hot springs). Crossing the bridge beyond the village to the south bank of the river, the trail makes a little half loop before crossing another bridge, near the village of Simalchour, back to the north bank from where it continues to the village of Babichor.

Day 05: Trek to Dharapani (1,400m) 6 hrs walk

The valley widens and terraced hills develop on both sides of the river. The trail is fairly level and you pass the village of Shahashradhara, cross the Duk Khola and walk through fields arriving at Ratorunga. From here the valley narrows again and terraces disappear on either side of the river. Continue to the village of Dharapani.

Day 06: Trek to Muri (1,850m) 5 hrs walk

After crossing the river to its West Bank as you leave Phedi, the trail starts climbing in earnest and there will be many switch-backs until you arrive at the ridge and the angle of ascent eases. Again the trail climbs steeply to the villages of Muri. Continue your trek to Sibang and Mattim. From here you continue up an incline to the snout of the ridge, descend to the Gatti Khola and reach Phalai Gaon (1,810m). Cross the Dhara Khola to once again emerge on the west bank of the Myagdi Khola and then climb a ridge to the large Magar village of Muri.

Day 07: Trek to Boghara (2,080m) 6 hrs walk

Descend a little, cross a stream and continue through terraced fields before climbing a ridge to reach the pass from where you can see Mt. Ghustung South (6,465m). Descend to the Myagdi Khola and trek along its West Bank to the village of Naura from where you will climb a little before traversing a grassy hill and climbing a steep slope with switch-backs, then descend through a forest and terraced fields to Boghara (2,080m).

Day 08: Trek to Dobang (2,520m) 5 hrs

The trail first descends through terraced fields to a small ridge, then through a forest to Jyardan which is the most remote permanent settlement in this part. After the settlement a high winding path crosses a rocky area which then descends before climbing again to Lipshe where there is one single hut. The trail continues through a forest to Lapche Kharka and then climbs to the level area at Dobang.

Day 09: Trek to Choriban Khola (3,110m) 5 hrs

Another day to take some rest and more importantly, acclimatize to the lower air pressure. Views from this place are superb and there is plenty to explore.

Day 15: Cross the French Pass (5,360m), then trek to the Hidden Valley (5,200m) 6 hrs

After the glacier you climb two terraced hills, the first of which runs along the glacier, then cuts across the mountain flank and the moraine you enter a gentle incline on the left from an ablation valley.

To the south is Tukche Peak (6,920m) and beyond is the massive peak of Dhaulagiri I. From the French Pass you continue along the right edge of the Hidden valley losing a little altitude to the Thapa Pass (5,250m) between Tukche Peak and Thapa Peak (6,012m). Descending from the Thapa Pass you will make it to the camp at 5,200m.

Day 16: Cross Dhampus Pass (5,200m), and trek to Yak Kharka (3,680m) 6 hrs

Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek Information

Travel Insurance

If you are planning your next trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal, then it is highly recommended that you get a travel insurance that covers all the additional and unforeseen expenses that might occur as a result of different injuries or accidents (together with ambulance, helicopter, rescue and other treatment cost) and various other health related issues. Moreover, the policy should also fund the entire activities that you are planning to take on throughout your stay in Nepal. In addition, the policy should also finance misplaced luggage, theft and liability, cancellations, medical treatment (including hospital charges, cost of the medicine and doctor’s fees), death and repatriation cost as well. This trek requires walking above the altitude of 4,000, therefore, it is kindly requested to ensure that your insurance policy covers trek that goes over 4000m. In short, all unforeseen expenses during the entire trek are trekkers’ sole responsibility.

Health, fitness and experience requirements:

Trekking along the trail of Annapurna region is identified as one of the long distance trekking in the world. Therefore, the trek demands good stamina, excellent health condition and the highest level of mental determination. Some sections of the trek take you to the altitude of over 4000m and some days require 7-8 hours of walking. Therefore, it is well recommended to plan your trek when you are at your best health condition.

The trek is considerably moderate and attainable. Yet, it is highly recommended that you seek advice, medication, and permission from your doctor before scheduling your trek. You can also take the help of the local General Practitioner in order to consult the necessary guide walks before planning the trek. (Running, cycling, or a few hours of uphill walking are considered as some of the best ways to practice for your next trek. This also helps in minimizing the potential effect of Altitude Mountain Sickness.) In the absence of GP, various travel clinics can also assist you with the needed guidance. However, this trek can be easily attained even without any technical knowledge, but prior hiking, trekking and camping experience will definitely make the walk easier. 

Note:

We kindly request you to submit your medical fitness certificate (which must include your present health condition, medical situation, preceding illness, and the medications you are taking) before booking the packages. We also request you to be honest so that we can get prepared and take quick action in case of any emergencies.

Meals and Accommodation:

In order to ensure a comfortable stay and relaxed ambiance, we do the booking in one of the best tourist standard hotels before and after your trek.

Triple share is also available on request and a single supplement room is also available at an additional cost.

During the trek, your stay is arranged in local guesthouses or lodges (with shared amenities) en route. You can enjoy a hot shower in most of these lodges, however, in the absence of hot shower few buckets of hot water will also be arranged by the lodge itself. A full board meal (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and tea & coffee) will be served from the teahouse menu. For breakfast usually western food like porridge, oatmeal, local bread, and toast are offered. The food served for lunch and dinner can be chosen from the teahouse menu.

Spring - March, April and May are considered the best month to pay your visit to the Annapurna region because during these months you can experience the warm weather, clear skies, good temperature and the best visibility.

Autumn – Mid September, October and November is also considered the best month to visit the Annapurna region because of the best visibility, clear blue skies and excellent trail.

Winter – December, January and February are good, if you can prepare yourself to experience the extreme cold weather.

Summer – Mid June, July and August are not considered as the right time to visit the Annapurna range as the monsoon rain affects everything that is, trail, weather, temperature as well as the visibility.
