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.
