  • Duration:
    47 Days
  • Max-Altitude:
    26794ft/8167m

Trip Introduction

The 7th highest mountain peak in the world is Mt. Dhaulagiri (81673m/26794ft. It is the 5th highest one amongst in Nepal. This mountain is located in the Northwest of Myagdi District of Nepal.  Dhavala means “White” and Giri means “Mountain peak” from Sanskrit, is a real giant which endorse to say the range of White Mountains as Dhavala-giri here after called Mt.Dhaulagiri in combined. The real altitude of Mt Dhaulagiri is (8,167m) from sea level. Mt. Dhaulagiri is one of the most formidable peaks to climb with the first successful summit only in 1960 by the Swiss following from the Northeast ridge. This mountain was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s but remained virtually unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949. Five ridges buttress Dhaulagiri l and even up until the early 1980’s only the Northeast ridge had been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri is considered the most interesting peak among the eight thousand meters one. In terms of rise above the terrain Dhaulagiri is unparallel as it rises 7000m over Kali Gandaki valley over horizontal length of 30km, which by any standard is an impressive statistic.

Mt. Dhaulagiri Expedition:

The vast majority of ascents to date have been via the first ascent route, which is the “Normal Route” on the Expedition of Dhaulagiri. However ascents have been made from almost every direction in this mountain. Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and south and west faces, which raise 4000m from their Base Camps, offering opportunities to develop many interesting routes from Italian, Swiss and French camps. As of 2007, there had been 358 summit ascents of Dhaulagiri and 58 climbing fatalitieson the mountain. Due to its technically challenging routes, the lack of big commercial expeditions is one of the more attractive qualities of Dhaulagiri as only seasoned mountaineers seem to have interest in this formidable mountain.
