Mount Dhaulagiri Expedition is standing proudly as the 7th highest mountain in the world, Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m / 26,795ft) is a captivating and formidable peak in Nepal. Nestled in the North-West part of the Myagdi District, this majestic mountain derives its name from Sanskrit, where "Dhavala" means "white" and "Giri" signifies "Mountain Peak." The term Dhaulagiri translates to "White Mountain," a fitting description for the stunning range of snow-capped peaks.

Conquered for the first time by a Swiss/Austrian expedition on May 13, 1960, Dhaulagiri stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit of mountaineering. The Dhaulagiri massif stretches an impressive 120 km from the Kaligandaki River in the West to the Bheri. Notably, Dhaulagiri I serves as the highest point in the basin of the Gandaki River.

Just 34 km to the east of Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna I (8,091m/26,545 ft) adds to the spectacular panorama of the region. The Kaligandaki River winds its way through the world's deepest gorge, creating a remarkable natural feature. To the south, the city of Pokhara stands as an important regional center, serving as a gateway for mountaineers and trekkers exploring both Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges. Pokhara is not only a strategic base for adventure enthusiasts but also a popular tourist destination in its own right, offering a picturesque setting against the backdrop of these awe-inspiring mountain ranges.
