Separated from the Annapurna region by the deepest gorge of Kali Gandaki, Dhaulagiri region is considered to be one of the remotest places in Nepal.

Alongside, it takes you through high alpine pastures and passes that offer a closer look at thousands of flora and fauna just laying and playing around in their natural habitat. It also takes you through serene and untouched valleys of the region which are inhabited by the people of ethnic tribes of the Magars, Gurungs and Chhetris. Upon reaching the foot of the majestic Dhaulagiri in Dhaulagiri Base Camp, the trekkers can caress the majestic giant with their own hands. Walking further from the base camp towards the French pass (5,240 meters) and Thapa pass (5,155 meters), you can encounter herds of semi-wild yaks, mountain sheep and snow leopards. And at the end of the trek, you can get the steam off your body at Tatopani, a natural hot-spring, before heading back to Kathmandu.
