    The Dhaulagiri is one of the most popular 8000m Peaks for climbing in the Himalayas. The seventh highest mountain in the world. The region is a land of dramatic contrast. It extends from the near tropical Pokhara valley to the steep slope of the snow-capped Himalayas. The region is considered to be one of the most remote places of the country and there are many high mountain passes. This makes the trans-Himalayan trek rather quiet, but full of adventure and excitement.
