Mt. Dhaulagiri Expedition

Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It is an enormous Himalayan massif, located in north central Nepal. The crest of the mountain stretches for thirty miles, lending structure to an otherwise tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers and ice fall. Along the main crest, several pyramid shaped peaks rise. Four of these peaks, numbered from east to west rise above 7000 m. The climb follows a circuitous route around the mountain from French Col to approach the summit from the North East Col.
Mt. Dhaulagiri was first successfully summited by the Swiss expedition team in 1960 following from the Northeast ridge. This mountain was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s but remained virtually unknown until a Swiss aerial survey was made in 1949. Five ridges buttress Dhaulagiri l and even up until the early 1980's only the Northeast ridge had been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri is considered the most interesting peak among the eight thousand meters Himalayan Mountains.
The first ascent to Dhaulagiri summit was made via "Normal Route" However ascents have been made from almost every direction in this mountain. Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and south and west faces, which rise 4000m from their Base Camps, offering opportunities to develop many interesting routes from Italian, Swiss and French camps. Till now, there have been 400 summit ascents of Dhaulagiri and 65 climbing casualities on the mountain. Due to its technically difficult routes, it still poses a challenge to seasoned climbers.
