Mount Dhualagiri Expediton

      Overview

      Located northwest of the Myagdi district of Nepal, this mound-shaped mountain has 5 ridges and south and west faces, which raise 4000m from their base camp. Although the majority of the climbs are via the first ascent route, that is, the northeast route, the peak can be climbed from almost every direction. It is also one of the most climbed eight-thousanders in Nepal.  The route to the summit is technically challenging, which makes it one of the most interesting peaks to climb.

      The 7th highest peak in the world  and the 5th in Nepal, Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), is said to be the most interesting and  the most formidable peaks among the eight thousand meters. Located north west of Myagdi district of Nepal, this mound shaped mountain has 5 ridges and south and west faces, which rise 4000m from their base camp. Although the majority of the climbs are via the first ascent route, that is, the north east route, the peak can be climbed from almost every direction. It is also one of the most climbed eight thousanders in Nepal. The peak was first successfully climbed by Swiss-Australian team on 13th May 1960. The route to the summit is technically challenging, which makes it one of the most interesting peak to climb.

      The Expedition: Total 48 days are required to complete the Dhaulagiri Expedition. The expedition starts with final preparation in Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, we drive to Darbang. From Darbang we trek all the way up to the Dhaulagiri Base Camp at 4700m. About 30 days are required to reach the summit. The ascent will be made via normal route that is via the Northeast Ridge.  Four camps will be set before the summit at 5,900m, 6,400m, 7200m and 7500m. Steep climbing is required to reach camp 2 from camp 1, from camp 2 steep ice and snow climbing is required to get to camp 3 located  towards the west. From camp 3, we head towards the eastern ridge experiencing strong wind condition, which makes this section of the summit the most difficult section before reaching camp 4. From the fourth camp, if the weather permits, we directly attempt the summit. On the way back, we only walk for two days to Jomsom and take a flight to Pokhara. From Pokhara we drive to Kathmandu.
