Drive after breakfast to Beni and start trek. From Beni pass Beni Mangalghat where there is a row of shops then enter a isolated mountainside. Pass Jyanmara which consists of a single teahouse, after the mountain path, follow a wide level path. Houses increase as you approach singa with its shops and teahouses. Camp on the school ground, side of the Myagdi Khola.

Day 5

Follow a raised path above the riverbed, pass a hot spring below to the left, and enter refined fields to a wide path that leads to Tatopani. Ten minutes beyond this village, cross a suspension bridge to the right bank, pass the tiny village of Bholamza and go through fields to another suspension bridge which returns you to the left bank. Pass by Simarchor a little further on and cross the suspension bridge over the Newale Khola that flows in from the right. Follow the Myagdi Khola left bank path past the small villages of Shisman and Talkot; climb a bit to Babichor with its shops and teahouses. Cross a high, winding path on a mountainside out Babichor. Terraced hills develop in the wide valley, paddies become plentiful and the path is easy to walk, being either flat or gently ascending. Pass stone paved Shahasdara cross Dukh khola and continue amid paddies. After Ratorunga with its shop and tea house the wide terraced hills end. Follow a path along the river pass Bodeni to Chachare with its teahouse. The terraced hills disappear on the opposite bank as well and the left bank of the narrow valley gently undulates up and down as you arrive at the large village of Darbang with its rows of shops.

Day 6

Cross a suspension bridge to the right bank, pass the branch Ritum khola to your left as you go to the right through the hamlet of Darbang. Follow the right bank path along the river at the base of stone cliffs to phedi (1100m) with its two teahouses. Just beyond the phedi, cross the Dang khola, which flows from the left, and begin to climb a ridge on the opposite bank. As zig and zag up a steep hill, the seraph of incline gradually eases soon you enter a mountainside on the myagdi khola side from the pine-covered ridge path to Dharapani, a heavily populated village. Once again climb a steep slope after which you descend a mountain path past Takum where cultivated fields spread over the wide mountain flank. You arrive at the village of Shibang and camp on grassy ground.

Day 7

From Shibang you pass through a forest and continue past mattim up an incline to the snout of ridge where Dhaulagiri Himal is visible. Descend to the gatti khola,then skirt around the ridge to phalai gaon (1810) is on a mountainside partially penetrated by the tributary Dhara khola. To go to Muri, follow the stone-welled path a short way beyond Phalai goun, enter the terraced fields to the right and cross the Dhara khola via a suspension bridge. If it is the dry season, descend the valley next to the school, walk to the opposite bank, and climb the steep hill for a short cut. The main path ascends the mountainside from the suspension bridge, passes below the village of Dhara and goes through a hamlet to an up and down mountain path to join with the shortcut described above. Though this is the long way the path is better. Follow the mountain path and skrit around the ridge, emerging once again to the right bank of the Myagdi khola. The mountain path continues, winding uphill, and when you skirt around a ridge, a vista of Dhaulagiri 1 (8167m) and Gurja himal (7193m) opens up. Reach the large village of Muri where the houses of the Magar clan closely together.

Day 8

Descend a gentle slope, and cross a rocky stream. Descend a path amid terraced fields to Dhora khola. Cross the river and climb to the right up the mountainside to Ghorban dhara. The view from this pass is fine, for the first time you can see Ghustung south (6465m). Follow the right bank path past Naura where you begin to ascend the mountainside. After climbing for a short while, take a path that traverses the steep grass-covered hill. The Myagdi khola assumes a steep-walled V-shape as the traverse ends and a high, winding path climbs the steep, grassy slope. The steep slope with not tolerates any missteps but the path is well constructed with a great number of zigzag stone step paths. At last the long climb ends, and you enter a traverse to the right here you must also beware of falling into the gorge of the Myagdi khola. Soon you descend through a forested area, emerging to a ridge snout where Bagara (2080) is visible. Descend through terraced fields to this mountain village where you camp in people's yards or the terraced fields.

Day 9

Here we leave the villages behind and the trial becomes increasingly challenging.

Day 10

Passing through the beautiful forest we rapidly gain altitude and mountains burst out all around.

Day 11

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. We may also use a rope on this section. This is a particularly tough day. We camp on the glacier rubble.

Day 12

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.

Day 13

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 (5300m,) the views of Hidden Valley open out. The broad valley is reminiscent of Tibet and Ladakh and so are the temperatures, at least -20 degree centigrade at night.
