The ideal seasons are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) when the weather is generally clear, offering the best visibility and comfortable temperatures.

The trek is considered challenging due to its high altitude, steep ascents, and rugged terrain. It requires a good level of physical fitness and prior trekking experience at high altitudes.

Accommodation along the trekking route includes teahouses and lodges, providing basic amenities such as meals, bedding, and sometimes hot showers. Camping may be required in some remote areas.

While not mandatory, hiring a guide and porter is recommended for safety, navigation, and carrying heavy loads, especially in high-altitude and remote terrain.

Highlights include panoramic views of Dhaulagiri and neighboring peaks, remote wilderness landscapes, cultural encounters with local communities, and challenging high-altitude trekking.

Typically, transportation is arranged by road from Kathmandu or Pokhara to the trailhead, followed by the start of the trek on foot.
