Mt. Dhaulagiri whose name means White Mountain, is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It is an enormous Himalayan massif, located in north central Nepal. After its discovery by the western world in 1808, it replaced Ecuador’s Chimborazo (20,561 ft.) as the postulated highest mountain in the world. It maintained this standing for nearly 30 years, until the discovery of Kanchanjunga, which was then falsely believed to be the world’s highest mountain. The mountain offers 4 camps, starting from the east of Dhaulagiri Base Camp, (5,300 m), Camp II (6,400 m), Camp III (7,200 m) and Camp IV (7,500 m) Dhaulagiri Camp IV is considered the most difficult in the expedition.
