Mt. Dhaulagiri, which is 8,167 meters high above sea level, is the 7th highest mountain in the world. In addition, the mountain is also the highest one that entirely lies in Nepal. Dhaulagiri Expedition is a climbing adventure that takes you on a trip towards the summit of the mountain.

One of the 8,000-meter Mountains in the world, Mt. Dhaulagiri is in the west of Annapurna region. The mountain stands impressively amongst many other towering peaks in the Himalayan range.

Dhaulagiri Expedition: Climbing the 7th Highest Mountain on Earth

The first successful ascent of Dhaulagiri was in 1960 by a joint team of climbers from Switzerland and Austria. Dhaulagiri is not only a beautiful mountain to behold but also a highly technical and challenging mountain to climb. A tricky topography of the mountain makes Dhaulagiri Expedition a challengingly tough adventure.

Although it is in the close proximity to the Annapurna, the mountain is one of the lesser visited 8,000-meter mountains. The mountain’s accessibility is tougher than other expedition mountains. Thus, only a fewer climbers head to the mountain to climb it.

The entire trip is divided into three different categories – driving, trekking and climbing. You will actually start the climb above the base camp. You will need to drive and trek to reach the Dhaulagiri base camp. When you start the climb, you will have to spend days in different camps set up in the mountain.
