Trekking off the main paths is not only possible, but can be immensely rewarding, though you need a sense of adventure and it increases ability to deal with the unexpected. Geographically Dhaulagiri Trekking is a land of dramatic contrast. From the near tropical Pokhara valley to steep slope climb to snow capped Himalayan giant.

Dhaulagiri, is the sixth highest peak of Nepal. It towers high above the well-trekked Muktinath pilgrim trail up to the Kaligandaki valley. The vast massif screens the hidden land of Dolpo to its north west. Following river up stream, ferns and forest of oak and other deciduous trees and juniper are interesting. Mountain side of rhododendron blaze with color in the spring, and other flowers are abundant on the trail, even in the high mountain passes above the tree line, tiny alpine flowers can be found dotting the windswept ground.
