On the ninth day of the Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek, we will reach Italian Base Camp after 5 to 6 hours of trek. We will catch a trail that passes through the dense forest of rhododendron, pine, and birch trees. Later, the landscape opens to the lateral moraine, which can be reached after around 2 to 3 hours of uphill walking.
From there, we will head towards Italian Base Camp, enjoying the views of green hills and valleys. We can also have stunning views of Mount Dhaulagiri and other subsidiary peaks from the Italian Base Camp.
Day 10: Rest and acclimatization day at Italian Base Camp
Today is the day for rest. As we have already reached over 3500 meters above sea level, we must acclimatize to adjust our bodies. Also, the trek has already been ten days, so we will be physically exhausted. To revive our body and energy, we must rest and acclimatize.
There are several ways to acclimatize; some of them are:
- Gradual Ascent.
- Ascent high and sleep at a lower altitude.
- Proper diet and nutrition.
- Enough sleep and rest.
Day 11: Trek to Glacier Camp [4,200m/13776ft] [6-7 hrs Trek]
Location: Glacier Camp
Glacier Camp Altitude: 4200 Meters
Elevation Gain: 540 Meters
Trek Time: 6-7 Hours
Glacier Camp, our next destination from the Italian Base Camp, is among the most beautiful and challenging destinations. It lies between the Italian Base Camp and Dhaulagiri Base Camp. The trail is uphill and physically & technically challenging, so trekkers are recommended to prepare enough to reach there successfully.
The trail to Glacier Camp starts with a steep, slightly technical notion. It then descends steeply down towards the glacier, and after crossing the glacier, we will reach the left side of Chonbarden Gorge.
A narrow trail begins from the Chonbarden Gorge, which leads us towards the Glacier Camp.
Day 12: Rest and acclimatization day at Glacier Camp
Glacier Camp is 4200 meters above sea level, where we will find thin air with low oxygen levels. Similarly, the air pressure is high at such high altitude locations that our body cannot adapt quickly. So, we must acclimate at Glacier Camp before making our ascent toward Dhaulagiri Base Camp.
Trekkers are recommended to make a gradual ascent, focusing on hydration and nutrition. Similarly, trekkers must have enough rest and sleep, which is the sole reason for acclimatizing at Glacier Camp. We will accommodate a tent, so providing sleeping bags, pads, and thermal clothes is necessary.
Day 13: Trek to Dhaulagiri Base Camp [4,700m/15416ft] [5 hrs Trek]
Location: Dhaulagiri Base Camp
Dhaulagiri Base Camp Altitude: 4700 Meters
Elevation Gain: 500 Meters
Trek Time: 5 Hours
After retrieving our energy from acclimatization, we will embark on a 5 hours trek to Dhaulagiri Base Camp. The trail is simply challenging, and trekkers require technical climbing skills at some part. Technical climbing skills are essential since the trail is covered in ice and glaciers.
The Chongarden Glacier lies above the trail of Dhaulagiri Base Camp, and the slowly moving ice sheets cover the whole trail. So, trekkers must use the ice axes, poles, and crampons for a successful ascent through the moving glacier.
After a few hours, we will reach Dhaulagiri Base Camp, where we can get magnificent views of Mount Dhaulagiri, Dhaulagiri II, III, V, and Mukut Himal.
Day 14: Rest and acclimatization day at Dhaulagiri Base Camp
It is the third acclimatization day during our Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek. We will follow the standard acclimatization guidelines to energize our body and adapt to the high altitude.
High-altitude locations like Dhaulagiri Base Camp are prone to altitude-related illnesses, such as AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema), and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema). So they must be very careful while embarking on this trek. Some trekkers even use a medicine called ‘Diamox’ to avoid altitude sickness.
Day 15: Trek to Hidden Valley [5050m/16564ft] via French pass [5,360m/17580ft] [8-9 hrs Trek]
Location: Hidden Valley
Hidden Valley Altitude: 5050 Meters
Elevation Gain: 350 Meters
Trek Time: 8-9 Hours
Day 15 is one of the longest treks in the Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek – trekkers must hike for around 8 to 9 hours to reach the Hidden Valley from Dhaulagiri Base Camp. We will start our trek from the left of the upper Chonbarden glacier and continue to climb through the steep lateral moraine ridge. We can have stunning views of Dhaulagiri I and Tukuche Peak from here.
After that, we will reach one of the high-altitude passes, the French Pass, at 5360 meters. One of the soothing experiences while traversing this pass is that we can have the insights Buddhist Prayer Flags around the area, and the soothing breeze makes it more spicy.
As we descend towards the Hidden Valley, we can have the views of Dhaulagiri 8167m, Tukuche Peak 6920m, Mukut Himal 5970m, Sita Chuchura 6611m, and Tashi Kang 6386m. We will embark on a few hours trek to reach the Hidden Valley at 5050 meters above sea level.
After spending quality time at the French Pass, we continue our trail by descending through moderate snow slopes. After a long descent, we follow the trail that leads to the hidden valley.
Day 16: Free Exploration of the Hidden Valley
As we reach the Hidden Valley from French Pass, we will set a free exploration day on the sixteenth day of Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek. There are several options to utilize this day, out of which one can be hiking to the western ridge to have the sights of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Nilgiri Himal.
For the information, Hidden Valley is also the starting point for climbing Dhampus Peak. Tonight, we will accommodate at a tented camp.
Day 17: Trek from Hidden Valley to Yak Kharka [3680m/12070ft] via Dhampus Pass [5,240m/17187ft] [7-8 hrs]
Location: Yak Kharka
Yak Kharka Altitude: 3680 Meters
Elevation Loss: 1370 Meters
Trek Time: 7-8 Hours
On the seventeenth day, we will start our journey early in the morning after breakfast. We will then prepare to descend towards Yak Kharka at 3680 meters, which takes around 7 to 8 hours to reach.
But the interesting thing is that we must traverse Dhampus Pass at 5240 meters to reach our destination. Dhampus Pass is one of the best viewpoints to view mystic peaks like Dhampus Himal, Dhaulagiri, and others. After crossing the pass, we will traverse through the Kali Gandaki Valley.
As we descend through the steep and rugged trail, we will reach Yak Kharka. Having a pair of sturdy hiking boots is recommended since the trail is very remote.

Today, we will reach Jomsom, one of the most beautiful towns in Nepal, at 2670 meters. First, we will journey to Marpha Village, the Apple Garden. The village is rich in Himalayan Nepali Apple, which is very famous. From there, we will catch a trail that heads towards Jomsom.
Jomsom is one of the windiest places in Nepal, so having windproof clothes is a must. Upon reaching Jomsom, we will be accommodated at a tea house overnight.
Day 19: Morning flight to Pokhara. Free day for Exploring and sightseeing.
On the nineteenth day, we will catch a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara; the flight takes us above the dense forests around the Jomsom and Kagbeni region and then above the soaring streams. We can have bird-eye views of peaks like Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and many others from the flight.

Best Time To Go For Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek
Looking at Nepal’s weather and climate conditions, the best time for embarking on Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek is Spring and August. During these timeframes, the weather is generally stable, making reaching the Dhaulagiri High Pass more convenient. Here are some reasons why these times are considered the best;
Spring (March to May):
Spring, which starts in March and ends in May, brings many cherishes to Nepal. This season offers everything from colorful surroundings to the clear and transparent vistas of the mountains.
First things first, Spring is the season of colors. The blooming rhododendron forests en route to the Dhaulagiri High Pass will soar the beauty of this expedition. Similarly, the trees go into full-fledged greenery, offering one of the most breathtaking views.
Spring has one of the most favorable weather conditions. The temperature is moderate, with an average of 18°C during the daytime and around -12 °C at night. In addition, there is minimal chance of rainfall and snowfall during the Spring season, which makes it convenient for trekkers to navigate through the remote trails to reach the Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Less snowfall means an easy getaway to the destination.
Autumn (September to November):
Autumn is another peak season to trek to Dhaulagiri High Pass. Like the Spring, this season also comes with stable weather conditions. The temperature is moderate and favorable for trekking and climbing the snow-capped peaks. The average temperature during Autumn in the Dhaulagiri region ranges from around 20°C during the daytime to around 5°C at night.

Reaching the Dhaulagiri High Pass Base Camp itself takes more than a week. The trek is hazardous, featuring remote & uphill climbs through the uneven terrains. Similarly, high altitude places can bring the risk of altitude sickness and other dangers to mountaineers.
Pushing for the Dhaulagiri High Passes from the base camp is the next challenging task. The route to the top of Dhaulagiri High Pass is very steep, slippery, and treacherous. With just one misstep from the route, trekkers can lose their lives on the verge of climbing Dhaulagiri High Pass.
Similarly, the weather conditions of the Himalayas are very unpredictable. Extremely low temperatures, strong winds, and high altitudes can significantly fail the expedition. Trekkers often suffer from altitude sickness and other related illnesses, including HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema). That’s why mountaineers should always strictly plan before embarking on this journey.

This will help them know when and how to launch the Dhaulagiri High Pass Expedition that meets their expectations. Usually, Spring and Autumn seasons are considered the best times for Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek. Looking at the weather conditions, temperature, the level of the beautiful scenery it offers, and the cost, these seasons might be the first thing to put in your basket list for Dhaulagiri High Pass Trek.
