Photo Gallery

Overview

Mt. Dhaulagiri, the White Mountain was first climbed by the Swiss in 1960. its name is derived from Sanskrit ’dhavala- means white’ and giri is mountain’ The White Mountain. It is an enormous Himalaya massif located in the North Central Nepal. It was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s and it remained as highest peak in the world till 1848 AD. Later it was mapped by one of the secret Indian surveyors in 1873 AD. But the region remained largely unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949. The French Annapurna Expedition, led by Mr Herzog in 1950, had permission to climb either Dhaulagiri or Annapurna but decided on Annapurna after a reconnaissance of Dhaulagiri. A Swiss team failed to climb in 1953 as did an Argentine group one year later. After four more expeditions, an eight member of a Swiss expedition reached the summit in 1960. The climb followed a circuitous route around the mountain from Tukuche, over Dhampus pass, French col to approach the summit from the North’ East col. The peak was then climbed by two Japanese in 1970s, the American in 1973 and the Italians in 1976.
