Mt.Dhaulagiri Expedition (8,167m) -2017 Spring

Mt. Dhaulagiri massif, ‘White Mountain’ from Sanskrit, is a real giant among 8000m peaks consisting of 5 major peaks with prominence ranging from 135m to 3357m. Dhaulagiri I (8,167m) is the 7th highest mountain in the world and one of more formidable peaks to climb with the first successful summit only in 1960. In terms of rise above the terrain Dhaulagiri is unparalleled as it rises 7000m over Kali Gandaki valley over horizontal length of 30km, which by any standard is an impressive statistic.

The vast majority of ascents to date have been via the first ascent route, which is the “Normal Route” on the mountain. However ascents have been made from almost every direction. Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and south and west faces, which raise 4000m from their Base Camps, offering opportunities to develop many interesting routes from Italian, Swiss and French camps. As of 2007, there had been 358 summit ascents of Dhaulagiri and 58 climbing fatalities on the mountain. Due to its technically challenging routes, the lack of big commercial expeditions is one of the more alluring qualities of Dhaulagiri as only seasoned mountaineers seem to have interest in this formidable.
