Experience an adventurous expedition to Mt. Dhaulagiri or Dhaulagiri I (8167m). The sixth highest peak in Nepal is also one of the most challenging mountains to climb. Although undertaken by pro-climbers, anyone with the least knowledge of alpinism can enjoy this expedition. Indulge in a serene trek along the snowy foothills of Dhaulagiri Massif, followed by the ascent of 3,500 meters of snow and ice-wall.
Dhaulagiri I is a part of 120km long Dhaulagiri Massif that extends from Kali Gandaki in the east to Bheri River in the west. It is home to fourteen different peaks ranging from 7,000 meters to 5,000 meters. Dhaulagiri Expedition is undertaken from the northeast ridge, also the easiest and most frequented route. The base camp is set at around 4,600m, followed by four high camps (Camp I at 5,850m, Camp II at 6400m, Camp III at 7400m, and Advance Base Camp).
Mt. Dhaulagiri Expedition begins upon your arrival in Kathmandu. Your trek guide will prepare the expedition permit and other necessary documents. Embark on a scenic drive to Beni located 300km west of Kathmandu. A short uphill drive will take you to Darbang from where you’ll begin trekking along the Kali Gandaki River towards the lush forested path. Climb towards Italian Base Camp (3600m) and head to Dhaulagiri Base Camp (4600m) located on the snow moraines below Mt. Dhaulagiri. After extensive preparations, training, and acclimatization, you’ll embark on the climb of the northeast ridge. The challenging ascent takes you through an ice wall, perpendicular planes, and avalanche-prone ridges. Climb via an icefall below Little Eiger towards North Col, where camp I is located. Follow an arête towards Camp II. The route steepens as you approach the snowfield at Camp III. Climb the final 45-degree gully to reach the broad summit. The summit may last 6-8 hours. Enjoy the magnificent sight of Annapurna I and few other Eight-Thousander peaks before retracing your path back to Base Camp. The trip concedes upon your arrival in Pokhara.
