The remote western aspect of Dhaulagiri region trekking provides some of the most demanding trekking in Nepal. The trails can be difficult, following glaciers and crossing high snow-covered passes which present a challenge suited only to fit individuals wishing to take on an adventure of a lifetime. Following two days in the fascinating city of Kathmandu, we fly to Pokhara and head to Baglung, the starting point of the trek, in the Kali Ghandaki valley. The first few days are spent gaining altitude, through lush terraced hillsides, passing many villages, before ascending to wild and rugged terrain west of Dhaulagiri (8,167m). The route leads through magnificent gorges and then follows the Chhonbardan glacier to the North Dhaulagiri Base Camp.
