Tour Details

Dhaulagiri Expedition is one of the best expeditions to explore a mesmerizing scenario in Dhaulagiri Region. Mt.Dhaulagiri Himalayas is seventh highest peak of the world, which stands tall at an elevation of 8167 meters (26795 ft). This spectacular peak’s name means, benignly enough, the “white Mountain” but Dhaulagiri has come to be known as the mountain of storms and sorrows.

Dhaulagiri Himalayas is buttressed by five ridges and even up until the early 1980’s only the Northeast ridge had been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri Himalayas is considered the most interesting peak among the eight thou sanders. In this moment there are more than six different routes established with variations and the possibility of more.

Dhaulagiri Expedition is a more formidable peak to climb. The first successful summit was not until 1960. The sheer size of Dhaulagiri is unparalleled to any other peak; it rises over 7000m over the Kali Gandaki Valley and is 30km long, which by any standard is an impressive statistic. The majority of ascents till date have been made via the first ascent route, which is known as the “Normal Route” on the mountain. There were also been other ascents that have been made from almost every direction. The massif Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and 2 faces in South and Western aspects. Each rises 4000m from their respected base camps. Dhaulagiri has 5 summit peaks: Dhaulagiri I is (8167m/26,795ft) Dhaulagiri II (7751m/25,430ft) Dhaulagiri III (7715m/25,311ft) Dhaulagiri IV (7661m/25,135ft) Dhaulagiri V (7618m/24,992ft) Surrounding the massive 8000m peak is: Churen Himal Main (7371m/24,183ft) Gurja Himal (6342m/20,807ft) Putha Hiunchuli (7246m/23,772ft) Junction Peak (4235m/13,894ft). We guarantee you to provide the best quality of our services in a peaceful environment.
