Dhaulagiri base camp trek is very adventurous. All the time we have to follow Raghu ganga river. This trek starts from Galeshwor and ends at Kalopani. In first few days we will go through the typical Magar villages then there are no any villages and tea houses. On the way there are waterfalls and we can see different wild animals. The path is very narrow and in some of the places there is long cliffs. When we reach in base camp there is wide valley, after valley raghu ganga river and after that we will be able to see very closely Dhaulagiri, Butterfly and Manapathi. After basecamp we have to climb up to Kali barah lake, which is holy lake and there is one pass. After crossing the pass we will come down to kalopani. The highest altitude in this trek is around 4900 meter. This trek can be finished in 10 to 12 days and this trek is fully camping from chimkhola to kalopani.
