This is a long, difficult trek around Dhaulagiri (8167m) which starts from Beni. The route follows the Myagdi Khola west-wards to Darbang, then turns north through lowland forests into the high country. Much of the route is on snow and glaciers as it crosses French Col pass (5240m). Then we traverse from the head of Hidden Valley, and crosses Dhampus Pass (5155m). The trek ends with a steep descent to Marpha and a return to Pokhara via the Ghorapani ridge.
