It is in Western Development Region of Nepal. Mt. Dhaulagiri is one of the most formidable peaks to climb with the first successful summit only in 1960 by the Swiss following from the Northeast Ridge. Mt. Dhaulagiri is coined from the Sanskrit word ‘Dhavala Giri’, meaning White Mountain. Dhaulagiri is almost unique in the world in terms of its rise above local terrain where it rises to 7000m over the Kali Gandaki gorge to the south-east in about 30 km of aerial distance.
