MT. DHAULAGIRI EXPEDITION 8167 M.
The Dhaulagiri Himal lies of the Tibet/Nepal boarder and the culminating high point at its eastern end is Dhaulagiri I. The seventh highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri   towers in solitary splendor. This magnificent peak rises as a giant shoulder of shining ice and snow.  It was first climbed by K. Diemberger, P. Diener, M. Dorji, E. Forrer, A. Schelbert & N. Dorji in 1960. This mountain was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800's but reminded virtually  unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949. This White Mountain was first climbed in 1960 by the Swiss following the North East Ridge. Dhaulagiri I is buttressed by five ridges and even up until the early 1980's only the North East Ridge has been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri is considered the most interesting peak among the eight thou sanders. Today there are more than six different routes established with variations, and the possibility of more.

Best time: From April, May (pre-monsoon) and late September,
October (post-monsoon) are best seasons for climbing.
