Dhaulagiri Expedition

Dhaulagiri climbing is one of the popular 8000m. peak expeditions in Nepal. The seventh highest mountain in the world, Dhaulagiri lies on north – west of Pokhara culminating high point at its eastern end. Dhaulagiri climbing is unique in the world as the peak rises over 7000m. over Kaligandaki Gorge in the south east in about 30 km of aerial distance. In fact, Kali Gandaki is dramatic as two eight thousand peaks, Annapurna I & Dhaulagiri both stand near the river facing each other over a deep valley.

Mt. Dhaulagiri was first discovered in 1808. Until Kanchanjunga was explored, Dhaulagiri was thought to be the highest mountain in the world. It remained as highest peak for 30 years before Kanchanjunga was explored. Dhaulagiri means white mountain which justifies a magnificent peak of shining ice and snow. The South and West faces of Dhaulagiri both feature massive drops; each rises over 4000 meters from its base, and each has been the site of historical climbs.

First the peak was conquered in 1960 by a Swiss / Austrian expedition team via North East Ridge. This route has been the normal route of Dhaulagiri climbing to date. Dhaulagiri is buttresses by five ridges which offer the possibilities of climbing Dhaulagiri on different routes besides already established six different routes of Dhaulagiri climbing. Normally four high camps are set up in climbing Dhaulagiri.
