Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek

Hello All,

I am Karan from North india and looking to trek the dhaulagiri circuit after 20th of october and looking for partners who could be interested in hiring only a guide from the trail itself.

I am on a budget trip so will be carrying food, primus stove and tent for the camps after the tea houses of italian BC, Also i would prefer a local guide also with us who knows the trail across the two passes incase of bad weather etc.

Let me know if someone wants to team up, i am open on number of days for trekking but only if it starts by 20th of october because post this the weather in higher altitude will start getting really cold.
