Mount Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It is an enormous Himalayan massif, located in north-central Nepal. It is the highest mountain located entirely within Nepal. Dhaulagiri' s crest stretches for thirty miles, lending structure to an otherwise tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers, and ice falls. Along the main crest, several pyramid-shaped peaks rise. Four of these summits, numbered from east to west, rise above 25,000 feet. Our expedition is an attempt at the highest of these four peaks, climbing Dhaulagiri I.
