Dhaulagiri Expedition

Trip Overview

Mount Dhaulagiri (8,167m) gets its name from the Sanskrit term "Dhavala Giri," which means "White Mountain." Dhaulagiri is the world's seventh highest peak, with the most snow on its whole face, making it a truly white and gleaming mountain peak. This mountain is one of the Himalayas' real gems. While many people think of Cho Oyu as an easy 8000-meter summit, the "White Mountain" is known for being one of the most technically difficult 8000-meter peaks in the Himalayas. One of the attractive aspects of Dhaulagiri is the lack of large commercial expeditions; only experienced mountaineers appear to be interested in this daunting peak. 

Nepalese mountaineer Babu Chiri Sherpa has climbed Mount Dhaulagiri multiple times. Babu's rapid ascent of Everest in 16 hours 56 minutes and his 21 hour 30 minute stay on the summit without supplementary oxygen were two of his most famous achievements. Many days of struggling on hostile terrain, perpendicular planes, icy sides, and planes swept by dangerous avalanches are required for the climb. The expedition's endeavor will be hampered further by the harsh weather, which includes ferocious breezes and sub-zero temperatures, as well as the mountain's dangerous illnesses.

For the first time, aerial photographs of the peak were obtained in 1949. From 1950 through 1959, French, Swiss, Argentineans, and Austrians attempted to summit the mountain; however, all attempts on the north side failed at roughly 8000 meters. On May 13 and 23, 1960, Swiss mountaineer E. Forrer and his team made the first successful ascent of the peak.
