Dhaulagiri Expedition 46

Trip Facts

  • Destination Nepal

Dhaulagiri Expedition is extremely technical climbing trip. The peak lies in the North-west Nepal.  It was climbed by the Swiss Mountaineering Team in 1960 after decades of efforts by the climbing teas of different countries. Even the trekking to reach the Dhaulagiri base camp is an adventurous journey crossing different high passes.

The white peak, Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m) is the seventh highest peak in the world. After driving to Beni Bazaar, the district centre of the Myagdi district, the journey begins with a trek. Walking through the rhododendron and pine forest, you reach to the Italian base camp. The trail is tough and slippery. Dhaulagiri base camp is located at 4740m. The weather condition is unstable that changes in short time. Strong wind blow and minus degree temperature always put on challenge on the trip. French Col, base camp and Dhampus pass are some tough places in this trip. The climbing route is another difficulty, which crosses the twisting ridges, glaciers and ice fall. The climbing session include four weeks. The views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Thapa Peak and the Kali Gandaki valley can be seen outstanding. Descending to the base camp and crossing the Dhampus peak, you trek to the Jomsom valley and fly to Pokhara.
