The expedition is one of the most popular climbs in Nepal. The climb is easy to approach because of Dome mountain shape. The mountain is just west of Annapurna Himalayan range. Dhaulagiri I, the sixth-tallest peak in the world, towers high above the well-trekked Muktinath pilgrim trail up the Kali Gandaki Valley. The vast massif screens the hidden lands of Dolpo to its north, and to the west of it are Nepal’s far western hills. Only to the east along the Kali Gandaki Valley, we can easily view the mountain close up, so massive Dhaulagiri with its symmetrical peak and four major outliners remain an enigma along much of its perimeter.
