Dhaulagiri French Pass (22 Days)


A tough, yet spectacular trek surrounded by the colossal peaks of the Dhaulagiri – geographically a land of dramatic contrast. Separated from the Annapurna region by the Kali Gandaki the Dhaulagiri massif includes more than 30 peaks over 6000 meters, eight of these surpassing 8000 meters. From Dhorepatan the panorama of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges is exceptional and this remote area is home to communities of Tibetan refugees who search the area for minerals and medicinal plants.
