Mount Dhaulagiri stands alone being the seventh highest peak in the world with a height of 8,167m/26,794ft. This peak lies on the North-western part of Pokhara city and to the south of the Tibetan border. It is one of the favourite destinations for explorers to conquer the summit. Also, it is listed among the most popular mountains that are above 8,000 meters in height. Mount Dhaulagiri and Mount Annapurna rewards Kaligandaki as the deepest gorge.
Dhaulagiri is preferred by many of the trekkers. The wide varieties of altitudes here, large frozen glaciers, hot springs and snow-capped peaks make this region a adventurous one for activities like trekking and expedition. This region is almost recommended by most of the past trekkers. They have already conquered the summit previously and have left positive and inspiring reviews,
This peak was first conquered by a Swiss team in 1,960 through the north-eastern ridge. With six different routes to the summit, this mountain provides a wide diversity. However none of the six can be called as an easy one. This adventurous and challenging expedition route will blow your mind away as soon as you step on the summit and feel worth climbing so high. Explorers who are always craving for adventures that are full of natural beauties too find this one efficient and unregreted.
This giant mass of frozen ice and snow get its name from Sanskrit’s word Dhavala. Dha means white whereas Vala means a girl. These two words form together and make the Dhavala that describes Mount Dhaulagiri as a beautiful and tall white girl standing as a gift of nature.

You will get best price after your inquiry We know about value of money and world economy, so fell free to share your tentative budget for this trip so we can mention and compromise with price, this is standard price for trip if you have low budget we can run even cheap and if you wise to pay more and need extra deluxe service we will do that.
We invest in insurance coverage for commercial liability and medical and disability insurance for our guides and Sherpas while participating on our programs. We cannot insure you for your personal needs, but we do expect you to be as fiscally responsible as we are. We strongly recommend that you insure yourself against potentially expensive difficulties that may arise. First, trip cancellation insurance may provide financial relief should you be forced to withdraw from the climb before it even happens. Next, make sure you have adequate traveler's medical and evacuation insurance for coverage should you have a problem during the trip. Medical care and evacuation from Everest can be expensive.
You may spend some additional money on the trek buying drinks and snacks (food is provided for you). If you go down to Pheriche for rest and relaxation, you will need some additional money for this (estimate $35 per day).
No problem, we will organize you a porter and you can hike back to Lukla. The porter will carry your duffel bags. We will provide you a stipend to cover your lodges and meals on the hike out. Our staff at Lukla will meet you, arrange tickets, and assist you to make the flight to Kathmandu.
We will hire porters to carry your duffels back to Lukla, where they will be flown to Kathmandu.
The Sherpas will carry a reasonable amount of your personal gear for you up to the camps. For example — your sleeping bag, down suit, extra high altitude gear, some food and snacks, etc. You should not have to carry a big load at any time on the trip — we want you to be able to move at a reasonable speed. You will need to carry with you the things you require during the day-clothes, snacks, water, camera, etc.
We have a limited number of "extra" shared bags available for upper camps, but most climbers will appreciate having a dedicated bag at Base Camp and then another bag that is used above the Icefall. We don't want to carry bags up and down the Icefall.
Additional oxygen is available delivered to the South Col at $1500 per cylinder (1800 liters). Most climbers do not require extra oxygen, we provide a generous supply (climb at 3 liters/minute above C3, sleep at 1 liter/min at Col).
We can call for rescue with the B3 helicopter from Fishtail Helicopter. The cost is $10,000. This is the only helicopter that is able to safely land at Base Camp.
We suggest that you leave these items with our staff in Kathmandu, so it is easy for them to change your tickets or extend your visa for you while you are climbing.
