The seventh highest, and one of the most popular 8000m Peaks, Dhaulagiri lies on the north-west of Pokhara in the Western Nepal and south of the Tibet and Nepal border. Dhaulagiri was first climbed by the Swiss team in 1960 via the North East Ridge. Dhaulagiri which means in Sanskrit justifies its name with its enormous peak of shining ice and snow rising above local terrain above 7000m. The Dhaulagiri, along with another eight thousander Annapurna, make Kaligandaki the deepest gorge. It is also one of the most difficult mountains in the world.
Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain in the world is considered an interesting peak with more than six different routes. 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.
