Dhaulagiri (8167 m) is the Seventh highest mountain in the world and is located in the Dhaulagiri Himal. Mt. Dhaulagiri lies in the Dhaulagiri Zone of north-central Nepal, northwest of Pokhara. Its name is derived from Sanskrit “Dhavala" means "White" and Giri is "Mountain".

A French team was permitted to climb either Annapurna or Dhaulagiri in 1950 but decided to climb Annapurna after a reconnaissance of Dhaulagiri. A Swiss team tried to climb Dhaulagiri in 1953 but failed to reach the summit.

Dhaulagiri was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by Ernst Forrer, of Switzerland via North East Ridge. The expedition leader was Max Eiselin.

GOOD TO KNOW:

HOW TO SAY HELLO AND THANK YOU IN NEPALI

Many Nepalese know Hello and Thank you, but hearing you speak in their language is still a sweet sound of respect. When saying Hello in Nepal, you say “Namaste” and fold your hands into a prayer.  Thank you is “Danyavad”.

HOW TO GET A NEPAL VISA UPON ARRIVAL

Once you arrive at the airport, please follow these simple procedures for Tourist Visa on Arrival.

1st Step. Fill in ' Arrival Card ' ...

2nd Step. Make payment at the bank according to your visa requirement ( 15/30/90 Days) ...

3rd Step. Proceed to the Immigration Desk with your online form, payment receipts and your passport.

THE SPOKEN LANGUAGE IN NEPAL IS NEPALI AND THE SECOND LANGUAGE IS ENGLISH

Nepali is an Indo-Aryan language similar to Hindi,  is written in Devanagari script and is the first language of Nepal. Indian travelers should understand enough to get around. English is a secondary language spoken mostly in large cities like Kathmandu. Outside Kathmandu, English is spoken a little less, but getting around is still manageable. Simply smile with a Namaste and the Nepalese will help you in any way they can.

AVOID DRINKING TAP WATER

Tap water is not filtered or purified in Nepal. Thus, tap water is often boiled before consumption. It’s best to buy bottled water. It is relatively inexpensive. Avoid any fruits and veggies foods washed in tap water.

ROADS AND DUST

Roads in Nepal can occasionally be in disrepair, due in part to the earthquake. The government is said to be working on improving them. Still, you’ll find large potholes and a lot of dust, especially in the more urban areas of Kathmandu. You’ll see Nepalese wearing face masks when driving on the road. Women cover their faces with saris or scarves.

SQAT TOILETS ARE COMMON IN NEPAL

While westernized hotels and restaurants and tourist attractions have western toilets, you’ll find more local joints and public restrooms bearing squat toilets. 

AVOID STREET FOOD

Nepalese street food has been known to cause many bold adventurers a case of traveler’s stomach issues. Refrigeration is poor in Nepal so street food isn’t always refrigerated and food can be reused after a day of being out.  Stick to well-maintained and busy restaurants.

BLACK OUT IN NEPAL

In the past, Nepal had regular blackout periods, which meant most of the city would go dark and don lanterns or power generators to keep business flowing. Today, the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has turned on the lights, making blackouts a thing of the past. But the newfound electricity has made Nepalese people suspect that the NEA purposely left them in the dark all these years, as a ploy to force them to invest in power generators. 

Kathmandu is fairly lit and most westernized hotels and restaurants have backup power generators for traveler’s convenience. In more remote areas and trekking trips, take a flashlight or head lamp.
