Mount Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world and the highest 8000 meters mountain that lies entirely within Nepal. It lies in the western region of Nepal and is a less climbed 8000 meters peak. The climbing expedition to this mountain is one of the best adventure experiences of climbing. Although an 8000 meters peak, Dhaulagiri is technically easier mountain than others to climb and can be your ideal mountain in Nepal to start your climbing journey to the Himalayas.
Adventure Mountain Nest organizes this one of the most coveted mountaineering expeditions in the world every year. Our Dhaulagiri expedition is led by a strong, expert team of experienced Sherpas and other supporters. Several days of trekking through high altitude passes to the base camp of mount Dhaulagiri gives us ample time to acclimatize to go further on our summit bid. All the acclimatizing passes come before the base camp. Once the expedition reaches the base, we set up the base and start preparing for the climbing attempt and look for the favorable weather condition and acclimatizing procedures.
