Trip Introduction

Mount Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest peak in the world. The name is derived from Sanskrit which translates to “white mountain” due to the excessive snow and it truly is whitest of mountains. Reigning high at 8,167m the view from the summit is dazzling. When the sun rises and reflects its glittering light upon the surface of mountain peaks, it really is a sight to behold.

 

The trail to this majestic peak is full of failures of those who tried to conquer this ice monstrosity and succumbed to the harsh environment and technical difficulty. However, our experts here at Bomjan Treks and Expedition will provide all the necessary equipment and guidance so that the climbers will make the best out of this trip. The vertical slopes, harsh rocks, and altitude sickness makes this expedition more difficult ones in the above 8,000m category.

 

The journey to the North-west Himalayas starts from Beni after a drive from Kathmandu from where the climbers carry on by foot. Along the way, the pristine nature, the alpine forests, the panoramic view of the Himalayas and the massive glaciers will occupy the heart of the travelers.  Travelers will visit peculiar locations including Tatopani, Marpha, and Yak Kharka.

 

It takes around 70 days to complete the entire journey in which 25 days is reserved for the actual climb to the Dhaulagiri peak from the Base Camp and the journey back. Acclimatization plays a huge role as high altitude sickness gets even the best. Physical fitness along with good stamina is required to attempt this expedition.
