HIGH AND WILD AROUND DHAULAGIRI RANGE
This is the ultimate trek – around the whole of the Dhaulagiri range (9 peaks over 7000m), 5 passes over 4500m, through high-altitude wilderness into trans-Himalayan desert and remote untouched villages of Dolpo. Your jaw will be locked open at the breath-taking scale of the Himalayas. Highest pass 5500m.
From Pokhara take a bus to Beni (3 hours) on the Kali Gandaki/Jomosom road. From Beni catch a local bus up the Myagdi Khola river to Darbang (2 hours). Buses for Darbang leave from the western edge of Beni beside a road bridge over the Myagdi Khola. There are several every day; share taxis are also available (double the price, half the time). This is a bumpy dusty ride, sometimes teetering on the edge of landslides and precipices. If this doesn’t appeal, it is also possible to walk from Beni to Darbang (6 hours). It is a verdant scenic valley, strung with small hamlets, The original walking trail still remains in most places, though here and there you will have to walk on the dusty motor track.After darbang 1:45 hrs of walk to Dharapani

There is no habitation between Lulang and Gurja Khani except for a rudimentary teashop at The Pass, so it is wise to eat something before starting and carry some snacks. around 8hrs to gurja khani.
we will be staying at village for a day for side scene and if you visit in November after the harvest is in, you may think you have arrived at an animal park as you walk the final 15 minutes to the village, for these fields will be covered with thousands of sheep, goats, cows and buffaloes, guarded by large but friendly sheepdogs, all of them wearing bells, including the dogs. As evening approaches a tremendous bleating and ringing arises as lambs that are penned call out to their mothers returning from grazing. Shepherds in homespun jackets wander around checking that animals are safe, and relocating those which have turned up at the wrong address.
