Dhaulagiri Expedition (8167m)

Duration: 47 Days   |  

We cater to Dhaulagiri Expedition from our based in Kathmandu. Mt. Dhaulagiri is coined from the Sanskrit word ' Dhavala Giri', meaning White Mountain. It is the seventh highest peak in the world. This mountain is one of the true jewels of the Himalayas. While Cho Oyu is touted by many as an easy 8000er, the White Mountain has a reputation of being one of the more technically challenging 8000-meter peaks in the Himalayas. Lack of big commercial expeditions is one of the more alluring qualities of Dhaulagiri as only seasoned mountaineers seem to have an interest in this formidable mountain.

The climb to the peak requires many days of trying on inhospitable landscapes, on perpendicular planes, on frozen sides, on planes swept by lethal avalanches. The unstable weather conditions, with fearsome winds and, way below zero temperatures, plus the perilous sicknesses of the mountain, will constitute one more obstacle in the way of the expedition's attempt. However, this expedition, with the particular members, administers all of the prerequisites that can guarantee success.

In 1949 AD, for the first time, the photos of the mountain by air were taken. French, Swiss, Argentineans and Austrians made attempts to ascent to the peak from 1950 till 1959; however, all attempts on the north side have failed at the 8000 m. mark. The first successful ascents on the mountain were on May 13 and 23, 1960, by the Swiss mountaineer E. Forrer and his team.
