From Tatopani, we will continue to follow the trail that goes along the Myagdi Khola and pass through many villages inhabited mainly by Chhetri and Gurung tribes communities of Nepal. We will continue on our route by crossing the suspension bridge before ascending gradually to reach Dharapani.

Day 5: Trek from Dharapani to Muri [1,850m/6068ft] [6-7 hrs Trek]

From Dharapani we follow a rather easy trail passing through terraced fields of rice and wheat, traditional villages with scenic mountain views along the way. We continue our trek by soon crossing a suspension bridge above Dhara Khola, and from there we begin to climb towards Muri village – a Magar community-based village.

Day 6: Trek from Muri to Boghara [2,080m/6822ft] [6-7 hrs Trek]

Leaving Muri, we will follow the trail that descends down a rather steep slope and then crossing the suspension bridge over the Muri Khola. From there we will continue to trek through the dense bamboo forest and typical farmhouses. We will follow the north route where the valley finally widens as we emerge to the open fields before reaching Boghara.

Day 7: Trek from Boghara to Dobang [2,500m/8200ft] [6-7 hrs Trek]

From Boghara we will follow the trail that goes along the west bank of Myagdi Khola and through the lush subtropical forest towards Lipshe.

We follow the trail through the forest to reach Dobang where there are several tea houses with good camping sites.

Day 8: Trek from Dobang to Sallaghari [2,820m/9249ft] [5-7 hrs Trek]

We follow the trail through the dense rhododendron, pine and birch trees before climbing up to an open area on the lateral moraine. Heading little further we arrive at the Italian Base Camp from where we can see the up-close west view of Mt. Dhaulagiri 8167m.

Day 10: Rest and acclimatization day – free exploration

As acclimatization is very important in the higher altitudes, today we take a day rest for acclimatizing before climbing up to higher altitude towards Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Besides, exploration around the Italian Base Camp can be of a good idea while we have a day off.

Day 11: Trek to Glacier Camp [4,200m/13776ft] [6-7 hrs Trek]

Glacier camp is situated between the Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Our trail descends steeply down towards the icy glacier. Following the trail here is very challenging and difficult, so we need to be well equipped with ropes, crampons and other equipment. After crossing the glacier we will continue our walk along the moraine on the left side of Chonbarden gorge. Following the narrow trail, we head towards Glacier Camp for the overnight camping.

Day 12: Rest and acclimatization day at Glacier Camp

Acclimatization is very crucial, especially when gaining higher altitudes. Today we will take a rest day at Glacier camp for acclimatization because ascending from Italian Base Camp 3660m to Dhaulagiri Base Camp 4740m can result in altitude sickness and generate difficulty in health conditions. It is very necessary for us to keep ourselves healthy and fit before we continue further up in the high altitudes.

Day 13: Trek to Dhaulagiri Base Camp [4,700m/15416ft] [5 hrs Trek]

From Glacier camp, we will follow a rough trail that along the moraine which is often snow-covered and icy. Carefully moving our steps, one at a time slowly we continue our walk over the glacier and head towards Dhaulagiri Base Camp.

Besides, Dhaulagiri Base Camp offers the best view of Dhaulagiri 8167m, Dhaulagiri II 7751m, Dhaulagiri IV 7618m, Tukuche Peak 6920m and other surrounding high peaks. Hence, exploration around the area can be worthwhile.

Day 15: Trek to Hidden Valley [5050m/16564ft] via French pass [5,360m/17580ft] [8-9 hrs Trek]

Today we start early following the trail that crosses over to the left of the upper Chonbarden glacier. We continue to climb a steep uphill towards the lateral moraine ridge with inspiring views of Dhaulagiri I and Tukuche Peak. Then we make a final ascent for the crossing of the challenging French Pass 5360m. We approach towards the top of the pass where multi-coloured prayer flags dance with the wind. Stunning view of Dhaulagiri 8167m, Tukuche Peak 6920m, Mukut Himal 5970m, Sita Chuchura 6611m, Tashi Kang 6386m and other high peaks surely offers a lifetime achievement. After spending quality time at the French Pass we continue our trail by descending through moderate snow slopes. After a long descent, we follow our trail that leads to the hidden valley.

Day 16: Trek to Dhampus Peak Base Camp [5100m/16728ft] [5-6 hrs Trek]

Leaving Hidden valley we follow our trail that heads through alpine vegetation and magnificent views of surrounding high peaks.

As soon as we arrive, we will set up our camps and make preparation for our further climb.

Today we will spend our day at the base camp for acclimatization. Being physically fit and mentally well is the best way to achieve our target Dhamus Peak summit.

After arriving we will set up our camps and make the final preparation of ropes, crampons, harness, ice axes and other necessary climbing equipment before our final climb to the summit. We will have to restore as much energy as we can for the successful climb to the summit of Dhampus Peak.

Day 19: Summit Dhampus Peak [6012m/19719ft] & back to Base Camp [8-9 hrs Climb]

Fully equipped and properly acclimatized we start early for the climbing of Dhampus Peak summit. With proper guidance, we will follow in the footsteps of our experienced climbing experts and overcome several technical sections we head for the summit. Once at the summit we are rewarded with great views of Annapurna I, II, III and IV, Annapurna South, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri South and North, Tilicho peak, Tukuche Peak and other snow-topped peaks. After spending quality time at the top we will gradually descend back to reach back to the base camp.

Day 20: Trek from Dhampus Base Camp to Yak Kharka [3680m/12070ft] via Dhampus Pass [5,240m/17187ft] [7-8 hrs]

Having achieved our target, we will follow the trail that climbs up a moderate snow slope towards the crossing of Dhampus Pass at 5240 meters.

We will make a rather long traverse across the snow which usually takes around four hours before descending further down towards Yak Kharka.

Besides, visiting sacred places and sightseeing around the city in Pokhara could be a good way to spend your day at Pokhara.
