Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the first
American Ascent of Dhaulagiri
26,795 Feet - 8,167 Meters
Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world, 8167 meters (26,795 feet). This massive hulk of snow, ice, and rock lies in Nepal’s Dhaulagiri Himal Range neighboring the Annapurna Range. Dhaulagiri’s siren song has coerced climbers on to her slopes for over 60 years. First summited in 1960, Dhaulagiri’s long approach, technical climbing, avalanche prone slopes, and high altitude continues to make this mountain a formidable challenge today. In 1973 the third ascent of Dhaulagiri was made by an American team.
40 years later, in the Spring of 2013, a strong team of American guides and alpinists will return to this iconic mountain to test ourselves on the steep slopes and thin air of Dhaulagiri.
