Fourteen members of our Dhaulagiri Circuit group in October successfully crossed French and Dhampus passes to complete this challenging trek. This is the second Dhaulagiri Circuit trek that I have led and third one organised by The Mountain Company.

We were very lucky as the weather cleared on the morning we walked over French Pass into Hidden Valley staying sunny and clear for the rest of the trek with superb views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri, Dhampus Peak and Tukuche.

Our acclimatisation schedule worked well by spending two nights at Italian Camp (3,660m), two nights at Glacier Camp (4,200m) and two nights at Dhaulagiri Base Camp (4,700m) then we crossed French Pass into Hidden Valley where we also spent two nights. For most people in the group the highlight of the trek was the day exploring Hidden Valley.
