The Fifth highest mountain peak in the world is Mt. Dhaulagiri in Nepal. This mountain is located in the Northwest of Myagdi District. Dhavala means “White” and Giri means “Mountain peak” from Sanskrit, is a real giant which refers to the range of White Mountains as Dhavala-giri hereafter called MountDhaulagiri in combination.

The real altitude of Mt Dhaulagiri is (8,167m) from sea level. 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.

This mountain was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s but remained virtually unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949. Five ridges buttress Dhaulagiri l and even up until the early 1980’s only the Northeast ridge had been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri is considered the most interesting peak among the eight thousand meters one. In terms of rise above the terrain Dhaulagiri is unparalleled as it rises 7000m over Kali Gandaki valley over horizontal length of 30km, which by any standard is an impressive statistic.
