Dhaulagiri also known as the “White Mountain” is one of the fascinating 8,000m/26,250ft peaks located in Western Nepal and stands as the seventh highest mountain in the world. Dhaulagiri is the highest mountain that lies entirely within the Nepal boundary. The mountain’s long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches and we will climb via the standard route, the North-East Face. This route was first climbed by the famous Kurt Diemburger along with Peter Diener, Albin Schelbert, with Sherpas Nawang Dorje and Nima Dorje of Nepal in May 1960.

During the trek, we will be passing through the deep remote valleys beginning at a height of 1,100m/3,608ft above sea level—leaving only 7,067m/23,185ft to go to reach the summit of Dhaulagiri. We ascend through temperate climes, passing through small settlements. We ascend through the tropical zone into the alpine zone over the duration of the trek. The final leg of the journey takes us under the immense western flank of Dhaulagiri to a sheltered Base Camp at 4,700m/15,420ft.

Kaitu Expedition can assure the best possible expedition logistics support to ensure safe and successful climb under the leadership and guidance of professional experts with years of guiding experience. The mountain decides the rest. We believe that with our logistic support and experience coupled with your passion, determination and willpower, Kaitu Expedition can help make your dream come true with memorable experiences and amazing stories to share - A journey of a lifetime.
