60 Days Dhaulagiri Expeditions
60 days Trekking and climbing in Dhaulagiri Region
7 days in Kathmandu sightseeing, world heritage sights
Dhaulagiri; name is derivative from Sanskrit "Dhavala" means "White" and giri is "Mountain". The Mountain was displayed by British surveyors in India in the early 1800s and was mapped by one of the secret Indian evaluator.
After four more expeditions failed, eight members of a Swiss expedition conquered the summit in 1960. The Swiss expeditor first ascended Dhaulagiri in 1960. The climb followed a roundabout route around the mountain from Tukuche, over Dhampus pass as French Col, to approach the summit from the North-East Col.
Tragedy struck in 1969 when an avalanche killed seven members of a US expedition on the East Dhaulagiri Glacier. The Japanese in 1970s, the Americans in 1973 and the Italians in 1976 summited.

"Rajan we want to extend our thanks and appreciation to you and all of Earthbound Expeditions that made our stay in Nepal such a pleasant and safe experience that will be remembered by us for a long time. Since I celebrated my 75th birthday with you on Everest Base camp trek, I am leaving my options open and I will try to stay in shape in case my son Mike needs company, he still has quite a few birthdays to celebrate and I know that he is anxious to spend some back in Nepal"..,
