Dhaulagiri Expedition
Overview

Dhaulagiri is one of the most popular 8000m. peaks for climbing.. The seventh highest mountain in the world, Dhaulagiri lies northwest of Pokhara, and is almost unique in the world in terms of its rise above surrounding terrain. Together with its giant neighbour Annapurna I, Dhaulagiri forms the deepest river gorge in the world, as they face each other across the Kaligandaki River.

When Dhaulagiri was first discovered in 1808, it was thought to be the highest mountain in the world. It remained the highest peak for 30 years, until its place was taken by Kanchanjunga. Dhaulagiri means white mountain, because its magnificent peak, rising as a giant shoulder of shining ice and snow. The South and West faces both feature massive drops; rising over 4000 meters from the base of the mountain. Both have been the site of historical climbs. The peak was first conquered in 1960 by a Swiss / Austrian expedition team via the North East Ridge, which has been the normal route of ascent for most of the climbs to date. Dhaulagiri is buttressed by five ridges, which offer the possibilities of different routes of ascent. Six different routes have been established for climbing so far.
