Dhaulagiri (8167 m) is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It is an enormous Himalayan massif, located in north central Nepal. The crest of the mountain stretches for thirty miles, lending structure to an otherwise tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers and ice fall. Along the main crest, several pyramid-shaped peaks rise. Four of these peaks numbered from east to west rise above 7000 m. These peaks are, in fact, almost unmatched in the world. Each peak rises 7000m over the Kali Gandaki gorge to the southeast in about 30km of horizontal distance. The Kali Gandaki gorge is especially lies between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna thus, giving a unique example of two Eight-thousander giants facing each other over a deep Kaligandaki valley.

Climbing Dhaulagiri - with Himalayan Global Expedition

The climb follows a circuitous route around the mountain from French Col (5334m) to approach the summit from the North East Col. Dhaulagiri (8167m.) was first successfully climbed by the Swiss expedition team in 1960.

Mt. Dhaulagiri expedition trip begins with an overland drive with expedition crew together from Kathmandu to Beni Bazaar following the classical route with an exceptional view of the Kaligandaki gorge that encircles Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m). En route we cross over the snow-capped mountain passes, and finally summit to Mt. Dhaulagiri

The vast majority of ascents till date have been organizing via the first ascent route, which is the "Normal Route" on the mountain. The unstable weather conditions, with fearsome winds and below zero temperatures constitute an obstacle in the way of the expedition's attempt. However, ascents can be made from almost every direction. After the summit, we follow the route up to Jomsom and fly to Pokhara, and end the expedition trip in Kathmandu.

This magnificent mountain was first climbed by K. Diemberger, P. Diener, M. Dorji, E. Forrer, A. Schelbert & N. Dorji in 1960 although it was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s. The mountain was remained unknown until a Swiss aerial survey was carried out in 1949. Climbing Mt. Dhaulagiri is suggested during the months of April, May, September, and October.
