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. 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. Our expedition is an attempt on the highest of these four peaks, climbing Dhaulagiri I.

The first successful Dhaulagiri expedition was in 1960 when Kurt Diemberger, Peter Diener, Ernst Forrer, Albin Schelbert, Nyima Dorji and Nawang Dorji, members of a Swiss/Austrian expedition climbed it.

The Dhaulagiri Expedition lasts almost 7 weeks including a weeklong trek to the basecamp at 4750 metres. Although there are multiple routes up it, Dhaulagiri is a difficult mountain and a technical climb regardless of the route requiring a high level of skill. The standard route for climbing Dhaulagiri is via the North East Ridge and is climbed with 3 camps above basecamp.
