Mt. Dhaulgiri is coined from the Sanskrit word ‘ Dhavala Giri’, meaning White Mountain. It is the seventh highest peak in the world. This mountain is one of the true jewels of the Himalayas. While Cho Oyu is touted by many as an easy 8000er, the “White Mountain” has a reputation of being one of the more technically challenging 8000-meter peaks in the Himalayas. 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 mountain. The climb to the peak requires many days of trying on inhospitable landscapes, on perpendicular planes, on frozen sides, on planes swept by lethal avalanches. The unstable weather conditions, with fearsome winds and, way below zero temperatures, plus the perilous sicknesses of the mountain, will constitute one more obstacle in the way of the expedition’s attempt. However, this expedition, with the particular members, administers all of the prerequisites that can guarantee for the success.

Dhaulagiri is reflected as one of the most fascinating peaks to climb. Mt. Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and south and west faces, Majority of the scaling have been following the first route, which is known as “Normal Route”. Northeast route is considered as the normal route; However, Mt. Dhaulagiri has been scaled from every direction. It was the team of Swiss /Austrian Mountaineers led by Kurt Diemberger who first reached to the top of Mt. Dhaulagiri on 13th May 1960. As all of Dhaulagiri routes are challenging, only veterans seems to have interest in this mountain.

The base camp is normally set at around 4,750m, and then three camps follow before reaching the top. The first camp is at 5,850m, camp 2 is at 6400m, and the last camp is at 7400m.
