Dhaulagiri (8167 m) is the Seventh highest mountain in the world and is located in the Dhaulagiri Himal. Mt. Dhaulagiri lies in the Dhaulagiri Zone of north-central Nepal, northwest of Pokhara. Its name is derived from Sanskrit “Dhavala" means "White" and Giri is "Mountain".
A French team was permitted to climb either Annapurna or Dhaulagiri in 1950 but decided to climb Annapurna after a reconnaissance of Dhaulagiri. A Swiss team tried to climb Dhaulagiri in 1953 but failed to reach the summit.
Dhaulagiri was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by Ernst Forrer, of Switzerland via North East Ridge. The expedition leader was Max Eiselin.
