Standing prominently in a 30-mile massif, Mt. Dhaulagiri ( 8167m ), renders challenges that put even the most seasoned climber’s experience and physical and psychological endurance to the test. Dhaulagiri rises stunningly high from its low-surroundings, thereby making it conspicuous among its other neighbors. On a clear day, it is supposed to be visible from the Northern Indian states of Bihar and Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh. In stark comparison, the other 8000 meter peaks are surpassed by their surrounding neighbors. In addition, Mt. Dhaulagiri gentle slopes are loaded with snow and ice, making it the supreme White Mountain. Contrastingly, the other 8000 meter peaks’ steep slopes offer little chance of accumulating snow and as a consequence display bare rocks and cliffs. Mt. Dhaulagiri has also carved the world’s deepest gorge with the help of the Kali Gandaki river along with Mt. Annapurna in the east. It also happens to be Nepal’s first discovered tallest peak after Kanchenjunga and Mt. Everest.

Most climbers traditionally follow the northeastern ridge to summit Dhaulagiri despite others opting for other routes. Well before reaching the base camp, you need to traverse the notorious French Pass ( 5360m ). However, you can only make the ascent to the summit after establishing five other camps at varying altitudes.
