Beyond Dhaulagiri in search of the Yeti! ( 17 Days / 16 Nights )

In 2009 we ran a very special trip for a client whom we may not name to search for the fabled Yeti! Yes, we actually went looking for the Yeti and by all accounts almost found one. But that is a story for another day and another camp fire.

After years of waiting we now have permission to bring you that fabled itinerary and take you into the area to see for yourself and perhaps come face to face with the legendary Abominable Snowman of the Himalaya. If however, at the end of your trek you still have doubts about the existence of the Yeti, you will at least, have trekked in some of the most remote wilderness areas and seen some spectacularly splendid mountain views.

Fly form Kathmandu to Pokhara, drive to Beni and then trek up the Myagdi Khola (river) valley to Doban and then finally to Kunaban Kharka (literally meaning “the grazing ground at the forest corner) and then return via the same route to Pokhara and then Kathmandu before heading home. Mt. Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain in the world at 8167 m. dominates the skyline providing near constant company and dwarfs the other surrounding peaks which are no less impressive. The villages are friendly, although few and the villagers are not used to seeing many outsiders in this corner of Nepal visited by few people.
