Dhaulagiri is one of the most renowned and seventh-highest peak above 8000m. The literal meaning of Dhaulagiri in Sanskirt is a giant mountain of immaculate ice and snow mounting above the local landscape above 7000m. It is located in northwest of Pokhara city of western Nepal bordered to Tibet from the south.

Dhaulagiri was first scaled by the Swiss team through North East Ridge in 1960 and is considered one of the difficult peak for expedition.

The route to expedition has more than six alternative paths. The regular path is taken as a sensible climb with only short methodological hiking parts and moderate risk.

The attempt from the west and south faces of Dhaulagiri has huge drops: each climbs over 4000m from its base and each has been the place of heroic climbs.

The complicated scenery of parody ridges, icefalls and glaciers are created by the widening of thirty miles. Many pyramid structured mountains rise along the major peak. Four of the peaks numbered from east to west elevated above 25,000 ft.

How is the Expedition Organized?

Himalayan Trekkers' approach to climbing is will be cautious and well-timed, with excellent leadership, organization, experienced Sherpa climbers.

Equipments like radios, satellite telephones, walkie-talkie will be on hand to all the team leaders and Sherpa climbers.

Cooks and waiters, a full kitchen in base camp, top-quality high altitude tents and high altitude stoves, expedition mix gas, and full safety equipment such as medical oxygen, gamow bag, and extensive medical kit are all-inclusive.
