This region is new territory for trekkers. Trekking off the main paths are not only possible, but can be immensely rewarding, though you do need a sense of adventure and an increased ability to deal with unexpected. Geographically, Dhaulagiri region is a land of dramatic contrast. From the near tropical Pokhara valley, steep slopes climb to snowcapped Himalayan giants. Dhaulagiri 1, the 7th tallest peak in the world, towers high above the well-trekked Muktinath pilgrim trail up hidden land of Dolpo to its north-west.
Following the rivers upstream, ferns and forests of oak and other deciduous tree and juniper are interesting Mountain side of rhododendron blaze with color in the spring and other flowers are abundant on the trail. Even on high mountains passes above the tree line, tiny alpine flowers can be found dotting the windswept ground.
