Usually translated as “the Great White Mountain”, the name Dhaulagiri can also mean the “dazzling,” “white” or “beautiful mountain” in the original Sanskrit. The world’s seventh highest peak, the only one of the 8,000ers that’s usually visible from the plains of northern India, clearly made an impression on the people who named it and continues to dazzle climbers to this day. Rarely summited, it’s one of the most interesting 8,000m peaks, offering multiple potential routes to the skilled and dedicated mountaineer.

Climb the Great White Mountain :

Dhaulagiri is not a challenge for the fainthearted. Long thought to be the highest mountain in the Himalayas, its imposing bulk stands as a significant obstacle to any climber wishing to summit all 14 of the world’s 8,000ers. Many talented mountaineers have tried and failed to reach its dazzling white peak. More than a few have paid the ultimate price for their failure.

A true connoisseurs’ climb, Dhaulagiri is rarely attempted by commercial expeditions. Dhaulagiri’s relative isolation means it’s more important than ever to work with a team that takes care of everything - from carrying food to fixing ropes.Our proven experience on a mountain that’s unfamiliar to most makes us the best-placed operation to entrust with your dreams.

As well as being highly-skilled mountaineers, they and the handpicked Royal Nepal Group guiding team have extensive experience of conducting high-altitude rescue operations. We have evacuation plans and accessible helicopter rescue in place for emergencies. We ensure there’s always a 1-1 guide to client ratio on 8,000m peaks, with at least four extra guides to help out where needed. 

Our Dhaulagiri expedition can of course be tailored to the needs and desires of individual clients, but the standard plan includes 44 days on the ground in Nepal, leaving us an ample, 23-day weather window for climbing and plenty of rest days. We trek in from Darbang, and after returning from the summit, cross the French pass to trek out via Jomson. It’s an unforgettable experience. The dazzling mountain is undoubtedly the glittering crown jewel in any climber’s career.
