TREKKING ( NEPAL )
Dhaulagiri Base Camp via Jomsom, 19 days  

 

Dhaulagiri Base Camp, 15 days trek/4nights Kathmandu total 19 days

Level:Strenuous (max. altitude 5,600 m)

Best Months: March-May, Sep-Nov

 

This is probably the single most extreme non-exploratory trek you can do in Nepal. You need a high level of fitness, a considerable ease in the outdoors, and basic mountaineering skills. There's a lot of untamed forest and difficult trails lower down, and as you go further up, you truly are all alone in the mountains and there are some extremely demanding parts of what goes for the trail. You truly must be able to hold your own here - a landscape this stark and isolated requires as much mental preparation as physical. The pay-off is an extraordinary sense of calm, as well as proximity to and view of the entire Dhaulagiri Himal  and the sixth highest mountain in the world, Dhaulagiri I (8,167 m). And, of course a sense of true extreme adventure. The hardest part is crossing over into the Kali Gandaki Valley, which is separated from the north and west of the Dhaulagiri massif by over a dozen peaks higher than 7,000 m. Once you've managed that, though, you'll be rewarded with the exceptionally pretty and hospitable Thakali villages of Marpha and Tukuche, and hot springs furthre down. You see trans-Himalayan culture at its most 'normal' - it will feel you've got to a very cosmopoltitan town, after what you've accomplished.
