The path goes steep up to Muri 1850 m, where the Mt. Dhaulagiri and other mountains appear clearly. From Muri, enjoy the magnifiscent views of Mt Dhaulagiri and others. Overnight stay in Campsite.
Day 07: Muri - Boghara (2050m/6724ft) 5-6 hrs
From Muri the trail is easy and goes down for few hours but before to reach Boghara you have to climb a steep path for a couple of hours.  The trail descends down before reaching Phedi and then the trail ascends up until Boghara. Overnight stay in Campsite.
Day 08: Boghara - Doban (2630m/8626ft) 5-6 hrs
Today the path is quite difficult and sometimes you will need the help of the ropes.  The trail descends down to a small ridge then crosses forest to Jyardan. Finally, cross the rocky part to arrive at Doban. Overnight stay in Campsite.

Today you will reach the Italian Base Camp where you will camp just in front of the West wall of the Dhaulagiri. Passing through beautiful forest we rapidly gain altitude and mountains burst out all around. Since, we are rapidly gaining altitude, keep yourself hydrated and take it easy. Overnight stay in campsite.
Day 10: Rest & Acclimatization day:
A rest day for acclimatization. Since there is little exploring to be had, this is a day to relax because tomorrow we will have a tough day. Exercise, move around, make some hikings and properly acclimatize with the altitude.
Day 11: Italian Base camp - Glacier camp (4250m/13,940ft) 4-5 hrs
After crossing the first glacier, probably using a rope in a couple of tricky spots, we climb onto the main glacier. The surroundings are spectacular, which makes up for the rough and dangerous trail.  The glacier crossing would require the use of rope.  Overnight stay in campsite.
Day 12: Glacier Camp - Dhaulagiri Base camp (4650m/15,252ft) 3-4 hrs
Today we reach the Dhaulagiri Base Camp. Soon the rough rubble gives way to the smooth ice of the white part of the glacier. We climb steadily to the rough and chilling but spectacular Dhaulagiri Base Camp.  On the way, enjoy the magnificent north face of Dhaulagiri I.  Overnight at campsite
Day 13: Acclimatization day
We will be constantly at an altitude of 5000 - 60000 m in the next days, hence so this day is essential. Even when we're acclimatizing, health experts recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day too instead of being idle. Overnight stay in campsite.
DAY 14: Dhaulagiri Base Camp - French Col (4950 m/16500 ft) 3-4 hrs
Hidden Valley Getting off the glacier above the base camp often requires a rope, but once over the steep moraine walls we are in safer and gentler country. After a breathless climb to the top of French Col.

More steep descent leads to Marpha and a well-deserved beer over lunch. Tackling along the cairns, we proceed along the snowy path. After a few hours of walking in the snow, we pass the top of the Thapa Pass. From Marpha, we further head toward Jomsom to catch our next day's flight to Pokhara.
DAY 18: Jomsom to Pokhara by flight
After morning breakfast we check in the airport to fly back to Pokhara, a 30-min dramatic flight to Pokhara between gorge of the two huge mountains, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. On arrival at Pokhara airport, guide will transfer to the lakeside hotel. We make use of the rest afternoon for discovering the beautiful Pokhara valley leisurely. While we walk along the bank of Phewa Lake, the second biggest lake of Nepal enjoying the Fish Tail Mountain reflected in the lake. You can also take a boat around the Phewa Lake or just can take an hour's walk to the World Peace Pagoda. Evening time, we spend exploring around the lakeside.

Today, after breakfast, we make a 200 kilometers drive back to Kathmandu. Better to hold on the left pane of the vehicle to enjoy the scenery through the route.
