Overview

Overview

Dhaulagiri base camp trekking is a new trail in the Himalayas that opened up for the trekkers. Its natural beauty and view are incredibly fascinating that make a wonderful adventure holiday for the trekkers. This trail opened up for the trekkers after detailed research and survey. This short and beautiful trail to the base camp of Dhaulagiri South offers breathtaking Himalayan views in addition to serene nature.

As the matter of fact, the trail now receives fewer trekkers. So, trekking through this trail is surely a peaceful walking adventure. This trip is not only a trekking adventure but also a wonderful cultural trip. The trail that the trek goes through has beautiful settlements of local people of different ethnicities. You will have a chance to explore the cultures and lifestyles of the people living in the region. In addition to the peaceful nature and cultural wonders, you will enjoy the views of majestic mountain peaks. Snow-capped peaks in the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna region will come to your view as you trek along the region. Other than the mountain views, the surroundings also offer an overwhelming experience.

Dhaulagiri Base Camp trekking drives you on a striking section to Dhaulagiri massif that envelops more than 30 tops over 6000m. Even though Dhaulagiri Base Camp trekking is a difficult trip, it offers the breathtaking all-encompassing perspective on the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges with the lavish green valleys, serene scenes, cold high passes, pine, and Rhododendron timberland, energizing glacial masses, and ice-covered pinnacles, expanded vegetation, Waterfalls, astounding mountains perspectives on Dhaulagiri massif, Thorong top, Annapurna massif, Kali-Gandaki River, the Gurung, Magar, and Thakali individuals and their way of life and customary way of life of the occupants of the district will have an extraordinary effect at the forefront of your thoughts. The best season to travel to Dhaulagiri headquarters is September-November and March-June. If the adventurers have great information on wellness and some journeying experience alongside the information on trails, testing environments going through the high heights will be better for travelling.

Although a new trekking route, Dhaulagiri base camp trekking is surely an adventure go for an incredible experience of trekking in the mountains. Unlike Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking, this trip is short yet equally magnificent.
