This is an exciting itinerary which takes us off the well-trodden routes and into some wild scenery.
The Dhaulagiri massif itself is an impressive range, with huge glaciers in the high mountains. Our trek takes us through the villages, then through forest before crossing glacial moraine and the French Pass.
We descend to join a section of the Annapurna Circuit Path, which will seem very busy after our time in the wilderness. We take the small mountain plane to fly back from Jomson to Pokhara – itself an amazing journey and one of the most impressive flights in the world.
As we fly down the world’s deepest valley, the Kali Gandaki, we’ll be craning our necks up to see the 8000m peaks on either side of the plane. We will spend time in the lovely resort town of Pokhara before returning to Kathmandu.
It is anticipated that this trek will appeal to the connoisseur trekker, although previous trekking experience is not essential. However, previous mountaineering experience is a requirement for this trip.
You will need to bring, and to be familiar with using crampons and ice axes (for self-arrest, not for ice climbing)! There is some steep and exposed ground, and competence on such terrain is needed.
