Dhaulagiri Trekking is one of the adventurous trekking trails in the Annapurna Region of Nepal. There is a long difficult trek around Dhaulagiri (8167m) that starts from Beni on the Kali Gandaki and follows the Marsyangdi Khola westwards to Darbang before turning north along a tiny trail that leads through the forest into the high country. Meanwhile, most of the route is over snow and glaciers, crossing the French Col at 5240 m. And going through the Hidden Valley and crossing the 5155 m. Dhampus Pass. Simultaneously, the trek passes Batase Danda (windy hill), where it is usually as windy as the name suggests. Then from here, we descend steeply to Marpha in the Kali Gandaki valley. From Jomsom, the trek continues to the village of Thini. Thini is the place from where a goat trail scrambles over the Mesokanto Pass at 5330 m.
