Dhaulagiri Expedition 2017

Dhaulagiri Expedition 2017

The seventh highest mountain in the world “Mt. Dhaulagiri” is 8167m in height. In Sanskrit Dhaula means white, beautiful and giri meaning mountain. t was discovered by the westerns in 1808. Unknowingly, it was counted as the highest mountain before the discovery of Mt. Kanchenjunga. It was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by a Swiss/Austrian/Nepali expedition.
The Dhaulagiri massif extends 120 km (70 mi) from the Kaligandaki River west to the Bheri. There are more than six different routes to climb Dhaulagiri. The normal climbing route is considered a reasonable climb with only short technical climbing sections and moderate avalanche danger. The South and West faces of Dhaulagiri both feature massive drops; each rises over 4000 meters from its base, and each has been the site of epic climbs. The tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers, and ice falls is crested by a stretch of thirty miles. Several pyramid-shaped peaks rise along the main crest. Four of the summits, numbered form east to west, rise above 25,000 feet.

Climbing Details

  • Dhaulagiri Normal climbing route is via Northeast Ridge, the route first used and climbed by Swiss-Austrian expedition in 1960. The Advance Base Camp is established at 5,300m and above there can be 3-4 camps.
  • Camp 1 : First camp will be established at 5,900m on the Col east from the ABC.
  • Camp 2 : Second camp will be established at 6,400m, reached with some steep climbing sections from camp 1.
  • Camp 3 : Third camp is located at 7200m west with steep ice and snow climbing. From Camp 3, climb towards the East Ridge, where more often we’ll experience strong wind conditions before reaching camp 4 (7500m). This is the most difficult part of the climb.
  • Camp 4 : From camp 4, if weather and condition favor us, we make direct push for the summit and return to camp 3. In difficult conditions the fallback is to setup bevy at 7,900m in order to attempt another summit push next day.
