“Traversing of Nepal’s remote pass in between the high giant’s snow capped peaks”

Overview

This is a fascinating and varied trek, which includes a taste of almost all of the trekking environments which Nepal has to offer. From the fertile and relatively low farmlands to the arid and treeless valleys, from the dense forests of the lower part of the valley to high snow crested ridge and remorseless ice field.

This trip also offers excellent and rare views of both the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna massifs. The trek is even more special; perhaps-culturally. The villages and the hidden valleys are particularly memorable, being picturesque examples of the less frequented settlements with its charming inhabitants that are still quite unused to the spectacle of the passing by trekking groups. It certainly is an overwhelming trek from the remote west of Dhaulagiri to the main popular Trans Himalayan Salt Trade route and through the world's deepest gorge of Kali Gandaki Valley and thus ending this wonderful adventure at Pokhara via the scenic route of Annapurna area.

The drive passes number of small farm villages, with Tatopani, which as name suggests with several small hot springs just by the path. Hot water from the spring even comes out of the standpipe in this village. Our journey continues on passing several farm settlements such a Babiya chaur, a small village with couple of local teahouse with a small ground just by the trail.

The Dhara River flows from the west, in which direction lies the important regional bazaar town of Dhorpatan enroute Dolpo region. The Myagdi flows down from north and this is the river valley which we will be following all the way to its source near Dhaulagiri Base Camp.

Day 09: Trek to Dobhan (2520m) 06 Hrs
From today onwards for a week we will be in total isolation in the perfect tranquility of the harsh and beautiful wilderness amidst the lofty Dhaulagiri range of snow peaks, on leaving the Bagar village behind and its farm fields following the path through the forest which climbs on the west side of the river Myagdi, our trek follows the narrow undulating trail above the river Myagdi, reaching the ridge top, then the path descends steeply in some section coming to a clearings where we find number of stone built Shepherd’s huts. Gradually ascending, we encounter more grassy clearings and after a total of 5 to 6 hours of peaceful walk we arrive at a level ground of grassy field 'Kharka' or grazing pasture area named as Dovan for the overnight camp on this fine open position on the south side of the tributary valley with excellent views of the peaks of the Dhaulagiri range ahead. Overnight at tented camp
Day 10: Trek to Sallaghari (2820m) 06 Hrs
From the camp at Dovan our route follows the path to the river after less than 30 minutes of walk, then coming to bank to cross Konaban Khola, depending upon the level of the river, sometime the bridge will be high on the top of the huge boulder or when the level of the water is low can be easier crossing just on the plank or logs. If the bridge its high above the river crossing would be quite daring on the rickety temporarily built bridge, after the bridge the walk follows through the forest for a while then we cross another log over the tributary stream then once again we enter the forested area until the ascent becomes a descent, and we can see the west wall of Dhaulagiri I, between the breaks of the trees. We head down to Myagdi Khola side and take the left bank path, and climb up towards another khola called the Pakite Khola, without ever getting too far from the Konaban River. We will cross this little stream - Pakite khola to the table land of Chartare, or the Bhaisi Kharka and walking further we will reach at Sallaghari for our overnight camp stay.

The trial heads into a rocky area then climbs the mountain side with a steep hill at the end. After crossing the steep hill, the path narrows until we cross a glacier and descend to the other glacier that originated from the West wall of the Dhaulagiri, then we climb the opposite bank to a wide grassy area in a narrow gorge valley of Pakhaban, also known as Japanese Camp. Pakhaban is a beautiful campsite with impressive West wall of Dhaulagiri I, and to the rear the huge stone walls from Tsaurabong Peak. Looking down below from the campsite towards Myagdi River, this vanishes into the underground icy glacier. Truly feeling here that, we are deep in the heart of Himalaya. Overnight at tented camp

Entering the glaciated area from the rocky right side banks, we walk along the undulating glacier surface as the valley bends to the right bank route with short up and down passage to Dhaulagiri Base Camp situated at 4,750 meter high. We look up at the impressive North face of Dhaulagiri I, while to the west the peaks of Dhaulagiri II (7,751 m.), III (7,715 m.) and IV (7,618 m.) stand soaring to the sky, and before us is the desolate Ice Fall descending from between Dhaulagiri and Tukuche Peak.

On reaching the highest point of this journey at French Pass where there the Buddhist prayer flag or lung-ta are hoisted by fellow trekkers and climbers respecting the mountain spirit. From this vantage point we get the stunning view of the mountain ranges including - Sita Chuchura, the mountains of Mukut Himal, and Tashi Kang (5,386 m.), all of which surrounds the Hidden Valley. To the right is Tukche Peak west and to the rear stands the huge Dhaulagiri I. A gentle descent along the snow covered landscape finally leads us to our overnight halt at the wide Hidden Valley. Hidden Valley remained behind Dhaulagiri massif undiscovered, until last few decades. It offers a very scenic charm with several small Peaks to climb. Overnight at tented camp

Trekking In The Himalaya

The Himalaya mountain regions provide some of the finest trekking routes available anywhere. Within the Himalaya, Nepal’s mountainous, hilly and lowland Terai regions offer some of the most spectacular trekking in the world. Treks vary from high altitude routes some of which visit base camps used by mountaineering expeditions to easy short treks within the Kathmandu Valley and lower hill country where you’ll travel through pretty villages, subtropical lowlands, vast meadows and forests, fast flowing rivers, deep canyons and even the cold and barren regions at the feet of the great mountain peaks. The views change with the seasons, with different stages of planting and harvesting cycles in the villages and valleys and the brilliant display of wild flowers in spring and autumn.
Trekking with us means an adventure walking holiday, with a small group of other trekkers, led by an experienced and professional English speaking local guide. We use professionally trained and experienced local Sherpa guides or Sirdars on our treks, tours and expeditions and are totally confident in their ability and experience. Local guides are integral to providing you with the best travel experience. Not only can they share local knowledge and insights, at the same time as you travel you are contributing to the local economy and supporting local communities at the same time as you travel. Whatever route you choose, you’ll be sure to meet local people and enjoy stunning landscapes as you walk at your own pace through well established village trails. Whilst some of the popular trekking trails are used by climbing expeditions on their approach marches, most have been used for hundreds of years by the local Nepalese for everyday travel and trade.

Tea House Trekking

On the more popular treks in Nepal, particularly in the Everest, Langtang and the entire Annapurna regions, enterprising villagers have built teahouse lodges, similar to European style alpine lodges offering simple but comfortable accommodation and food. We offer a selection of single/twin sharing rooms in the best available lodges run to a high level of service. We also supply a four season sleeping bag and cotton liner free of charge on our teahouse treks. Hire of other key items if needed can be arranged in advance. During the trek you’ll have 3 meals a day, with a mixture of European and Asian style dishes and large portions. Soft drinks, sweets, mineral water and alcohol are not included.

Fully Provisioned Camping Style Trekking

This type of trek is staffed by a full Sherpa crew including a Sirdar (head man), cook and assistants. Porters, yaks, horses or mules carry your main baggage. It is the Sherpa crew’s job to perform all the camp work, from setting up to providing freshly made meals, to leaving the site clean on departure. We provide twin share dome or a frame sleeping tents, a kitchen tent, mess tent and toilet tent. We also provide tables, chairs or stools, lanterns/candles, thin sleeping mattresses a nd all crockery and cutlery as well as a fully equipped kitchen set up. The Sherpa crew will cook, wash up, and provide hot water for washing and tea and coffee at night and for your wake up call. Food is a mixture of Asian and Western dishes, with lots of choice, freshly prepared. As with teahouse trekking you can expect 3 main meals each day. Soft drinks, sweets, mineral water and alcohol are not included. A few of our teahouse treks involve crossing high passes and necessitate camping for a couple of nig hts. We provide full camping services for these nights including providing four season sleeping bags.

Small Group Travel

Most of our trips, treks and tours are organized on a small group basis, usually with a maximum of 16 persons in a group. On family holidays the maximum number is 20 to allow a number of families to join a group. By keeping numbers small we are able to offer a friendly, personal and high quality service.

Group and Club Organizers

If you are organizing a trip for a group or a club we will offer one free* additional place for every 10 bookings made. You can use this for your own travel, use it to reduce the overall cost of the trip for everyone or perhaps offer it as a fantastic prize for your group members or for a charity. Contact us for more details and for conditions (* permit fees, national park entry fees, airfares and departure taxes not included).

Grading System

In Nepal, the trails often zigzag with plenty of ascents and descents and it is better to think in terms of hours spent walki ng rather than miles covered. A typical day’s walking is from five to seven hours with a number of ascents and descents. This includes a one hour lunch stop, a comfortable pace of walking and time to enjoy your surroundings. We use four grades for our treks, inte nded to give you a general sense of what to expect and to help you choose which adventure will suit you best. Factors such as weather conditions, altitude, fitness level, experience, interests and how you feel on a particular day all contribute to how easy or strenuous you find a trip. If you’re unsure of whether a trek is suitable for you just contact us before making your booking.
