of 22 reviews
Generic placeholder image

Overview

Dhaulagiri base camp trek is a new Himalayan trail that has recently opened up to trekkers. Its natural beauty and view are extremely exciting, making for a fantastic adventure vacation for trekkers. After extensive research and survey, this trail became available to hikers. In addition to stunning Himalayan views, this short and lovely trail to Dhaulagiri South's base camp offers serene nature.

In reality, the trail is seeing fewer hikers these days. As a result, walking along this trail is a relaxing experience. This trip is both a trekking journey and a fantastic cultural experience. Beautiful settlements of local people of various ethnicities can be found along the trek's route. You will have the opportunity to learn about the cultures and lifestyles of the people who live in the region. You can enjoy views of magnificent mountain peaks in addition to the quiet nature and cultural wonders. As you trek through the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna regions, you will be able to see snow-capped peaks. Aside from the mountain views, the surroundings provide an unforgettable experience.

Although it is a new trekking route, the Dhaulagiri base camp trek is definitely an adventure for those seeking an unforgettable mountain trekking experience. This trek is not as long as the Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek, but it is just as beautiful.
