    Mount Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It is an enormous Himalayan massif, located in north central Nepal. It is the highest mountain located entirely within Nepal. Mount Dhaulagiri' s crest stretches for thirty miles, lending structure to an otherwise tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers, and ice falls. Along the main crest, several pyramid-shaped peaks rise. Four of these summits, numbered from east to west, rise above 25,000 feet.
  • Description Edit •  Add / Share you knowledge with mates

    The main summit of Mt. Dhaulagiri is 8167m whereas the same massif of 5 major peaks is with prominence ranging from 135m to 3357m. Mt. Dhaulagiri is known to the world as the 7th highest peak. The mountain is of more formidable peaks to climb with the first successful summit only in 1960. In terms of rise above the terrain Dhaulagiri is unparallel as it rises 7000m over Kali Gandaki valley with horizontal length of 30km, which by any standard is an impressive statistic. In the Expedition of Mt. Dhaulagiri the vast majority of ascents till date have been made via the first ascent route, which is known as the "Normal Route" on the mountain. However several other ascents have been made from almost every direction. The massif Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and two faces known as south and west faces, which raise 4000m from their Base Camps, offering opportunities to develop many interesting routes from Italian, Swiss and French camps.
