Dhaulagiri, or the Dhaulagiri massif, is one of the tallest mountains in the world.

The Nepali name of the mountain comes from Sanskrit and means white, dazzling, and beautiful mountain.

Why Is It Famous?

The fame of Dhaulagiri comes from its height, as its highest point reaches 8,167 meters (26,795 feet). It is also the highest mountain that sits entirely within a single country, in this case, Nepal.

What’s Nearby?

This mountain is in Nepal, 120 kilometers away from Kaligandaki River. The southwest and north borders of the massif feature the Bheri River tributaries while the southeast features the Myagdi Khola. Dhaulagiri is just one of many peaks within the Dhaulagiri Himalaya.

Geological Description

The rise of Dhaulagiri from its lower terrain is unique. It goes up 7,000 meters from Kali Gandaki River, which is 30 kilometers southeast. The west and south faces rise quickly to over 4,000 meters. Within the same massive, the Gurja Himal’s south face is immense as well.

It is also interesting to note that the Dhaulagiri rises over the world’s deepest gorge, creating a sharp contrast. The distance between the deepest point of the Kali Gandaki Gorge and the top of Dhaulagiri is 18,525 feet.

When it was discovered in 1808, experts thought that Dhaulagiri was the highest mountain in the world. In 1838, Kangchenjunga beat Dhaulagiri, and then Mount Everest did in 1858.

Events in Time

An expedition involving Austrians, Swiss, and Nepali climbers was the first to climb the mountain, doing so in May 1960. The first attempted ski descent of Dhaulagiri took place in 2008, but the skier had to stop at about 8,000 meters due to weather, so he made a 3,000-meter vertical ski descent.

In Conclusion

A gorgeous mountain with snow-covered peaks, Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world and was once thought to be the tallest. The mountain has a long history of ascents and is close to many other mountains.
