Mt. Dhaulagiri Expedition is yet another intact mountain sensation that serenely flames the beauty and majesty of great Himalayas residing among the mountainous settlements to the north western part of Nepal. The beguiling snowy charisma and charm of Dhaulagiri makes it one of the formidable mountains to summit. The elevation of 8167 meters above the sea level plausibly scripts it as the seventh highest mountain of the world. The name “Dhaulagiri” is aptly decided after the physical attributes of the mountain; the glowing snowy white mountain. In Sanskrit lingo, Dhaulagiri splits into “Dhawala” and “Giri” which respectively stand for “white” and “mountain”. A Swiss/Austrian/Nepali expedition team on May 13 1960 successfully climbed the summit through the northeast ridge making them the first ever to do so.
Dhaulagiri is a splendid mountain to try out for intense mountaineering experience and this fact has particularly lured adventure enthusiasts to summit this mountain in large numbers. The twisting topography of the mountain offers tremendous opportunity to make an extremely adventurous journey to the heart of Himalayas. The standard itinerary we follow during this endeavor initiates from Tukuche and passes through Dhampus and French Col on the way to summit. We will be exploring five campsites (Base camp-5300 m, Camp I-5900 m, Camp II-6400 m, Camp III-7200 m, and Camp IV-7500 m) during our ascent where we camp and rest for healthy acclimatization and preparation for further ascent. At places, the summit offers strenuous and technical climbing which significantly tests your physical and mental potency.
