This book will appeal to those who walk with their spirit and min, as well as with their feet. The Dhaulagiri massif is an uncut diamond waiting to be discovered. Few tourists have ventured into this high-altitude wilderness with its virgin forest, wild animals, hidden villages, and cascades of terraced fields. Crowned with Dhaulagiri 1 (8167m), the seventh highest mountain in the world, the range includes eight peaks topping 7000m.
This guide book offers many totally new, off-the-beaten trekking routes. It also presents the concept of ‘Fair-Tread’ trekking, based on homestay hospitality, and explains how to plan your trek so that your expenditure helps those who need it most.
