Dhaulagiri French Pass Trekking

General Information

Dhaulagiri French Pass trek is one of the most challenging trekking routes and is a classic trekking holiday for those with previous high altitude trekking experience, which include a taste of all the trekking environments that Nepal has to offer. You walk through the semi-tropical thick with ferns and forests through hillsides ablaze with rhododendron into the alpine wilderness of snowcapped peaks and glaciers. Much of the route is on snow and glacier as it crosses French Pass and traverses the head of Hidden Valley to cross Thapa Pass.
