Mountain Overview

Dhaulagiri VII (also known as 'Putha Hiunchuli') is the western most peak of the Dhaulagiri Range and an expedition to it is an adventure in the true sense of the word. The area is remote and simply reaching basecamp is a significant achievement.  Unlike many other 7000m mountains the peak itself present basically no technical difficulty it does however represents an attractive opportunity for those who want to climb very high. Do not discount this peak – it is still a very serious undertaking and provides excellent training for later 8,000m peaks. Overall it is probably the 'easiest' 7,000m peak in Nepal and presents an ideal opportunity for ski touring and ski or snowboard descents of a 7000+m peak.

Our Expedition notes contain a full outline of the expedition, itineary and equipment lists.
