Dhaulagiri (8167 m) is the seventh-highest mountain in the world. It lies in the Myagdi district, in the Gandaki Province of Nepal, right between the Myagdi River and the Kali Gandaki Valley. Mt. Dhaulagiri extends about 120 km from the Kaligandaki River to the Bheri River in the west. It is also the highest point of the Gandaki River Basin. The name Dhaulagiri is derived from Sanskrit, meaning "white mountain"; hence, it is known for its snowy peaks and glaciers.

Dhaulagiri I (8167 m) was first climbed on 13 May 1960 by Kurt Diemberger, Peter Diener, Ernst Forrer and Albin Schelbert, Nawang Dorje, and Nima Dorje. There have been few attempts before 1960, like in 1954 by a Swiss team led by Albert Eggler. But ever since 1960, the climbers have felt the excitement of
reaching a summit that wasn't a success story.

We set up four camps to reach the Dhaulagiri Base Camp (4700 m), and on the journey, we also trek the Italian Base Camp (3660 m). The Dhaulagiri massif has five peaks that we will witness on our trip- Dhaulagiri I (8167 m), Dhaulagiri II (7751 m), Dhaulagiri III (7715 m), Dhaulagiri IV (7661 m), and Dhaulagiri V
(7618 m). We pass through rocky cliff trails, glaciers, and the view of some more peaks like Nilgiri (7061 m), Tilicho (7134 m), Annapurna range (8091 m) as well as Tukuche (6920 m), Dhampus (6012 m) and even the border peaks of Tibet.
