dhaulagiri-expeditionMt. Dhaulagiri 8167m. is the 7th highest mountain in the world and its located in the Dhaulagiri Himal. Mt. Dhaulagiri lies in the Dhaulagiri Zone of north-central Nepal, northwest of Pokhara.  Its name is derived from Sanskrit “Dhavala" means "White" and Giri is "Mountain".

 

Dhaulagiri ExpeditionThe Mountain first time scaled by Mr. Ernest. Forrer and his team K. Diemberger, P. Diener, A. Schelbert from Switzerland in May 13, 1960 via North East Ridge. A French team was permitted to climb either Annapurna or Dhaulagiri in 1950 but decided to climb Annapurna after a reconnaissance of Dhaulagiri. A Swiss team tried to climb Dhaulagiri in 1953 but failed to reach the summit. Normally, four camps will be fixed for Dhaulagiri climbing. Advance base camp will be set up at 5,300 meter which is used for depositing the stuff and not for camping due to avalanche danger cases. If we could not approach the summit from Camp IV due to bad weather or other reasons, we will have to fix bivouac at 7,900 meter and next day try to push to the summit.
