Dhaulagiri Expedition

A beautiful mountain Dhaulagiri is one of the most popular over 8000 meter peaks for climbing in Nepal and its offers a wonderful trek of Dhaulagiri circuit in Annapurna region. The Dhaulagiri Himal lies south of the Tibet and Nepal border culminating high point at its eastern end is Dhaulagiri 1st . This is a seventh highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri towers in solitary splendor. This magnificent peak rises as a giant shoulder of shining ice and snow. It gets its name from the Sanskrit word "Dhavala" which means 'white' and 'giri' which means mountain. It was first climbed by K. Diemberger, P. Diener, M. Dorji, E. Forrer, A. Schelbert & N. Dorji in 1960. Normally, four camps will be fixed for Dhaulagiri climbing. Advance base camp will be set up at 5,300 meter which is used for depositing the stuff and not for camping due to avalanche danger cases. If we could not approach the summit from Camp IV due to bad weather or other reasons, we will have to fix bivouac at 7,900 meter and next day try to push to the summit.

This mountain was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s but reminded virtually unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949. This White Mountain was first climbed in 1960 by the Swiss following the Northeast ridge.
