The Dhaulagiri Himal lies on the Tibet/Nepal border and the culminating high point at its eastern end is Dhaulagiri I. The seventh highest mountain in the world, Dhaulagiri I towers in solitary splendor, rising as a giant shoulder of shining ice and snow. This mountain was first sighted by British surveyors in India in the early 1800's but remained virtually unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949.
It was first climbed in 1960 by the Swiss following the North East Ridge. Dhaulagiri I is buttressed by five ridges, but even up until the early 1980's only the North East Ridge had been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri I is considered the most interesting of the eight thousand metre peaks. Today there are more than six different established routes with the possibility of more in the future.
