Mount Dhaulagiri expedition was first climbed by the Swiss team in 1960. Dhaulagiri name is derived from Sanskrit “Dhavala- meaning white” and Giri meaning mountain – The White Mountain. Mt. Dhulagiri located in North Central of Nepal.

After a short flight from Kathmandu, Pokhara & Jomsom, you will spend the first few days of our expedition walking through cultured fields connecting mountain villages, enjoying the shops, tea houses and normal everyday lifestyles of the Gurung, Chhetri and Magar peoples. You will walk along cobblestone paths, over suspension bridges and through dense forests, taking in the vistas of some of the world’s most beautiful mountains. We will continue to explore and fully absorb the beauty of the surrounding peaks. We will climb over the glaciated French pass and Dhampus pass and then descend a winding trail to Yak Kharka. You will continue through mountain villages, enjoying the Hot Springs at the Tatopani and views of the majestic peaks of Annapurna (8091m) and Machhapuchhare (6997m) as we make our way toward Pokhara while also visiting several Monasteries and religious sites.
