Dhaulagiri is the the seventh highest mountain in the world and one of the most popular 8000m Peaks for climbing.It lies to the north-west of Pokhara in western Nepal and south of the Nepal Tibet border. It was first climbed by a Swiss team in 1960 via the north east ridge.There are more than six different routes to the summit.The normal climbing route is considered fairly straight forward with only short technical climbing sections on the way however, there is a danger of an avalanche in places.The South and West faces of Dhaulagiri provide far stiifer climbing conditions both feature massive drops each rises over 4000 meters from its base and each has played its part in history of some epic climbs. The tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers and ice falls is crested by a stretch of around thirty miles. Several pyramid-shaped peaks rise along the main crest with four of the summits form east to west rising above 25,000 feet.
