Dhaulagiri Expedition to this 8167 m Himalayan massif is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It is located in north central part of Nepal. The crest of the mountain stretches some thirty miles giving structure to an otherwise tangled topography of twisting ridges, glaciers and icefall. Along the main crest, several pyramid-shaped peaks rise. All four of these peaks each rises 7000m over the Kali Gandaki gorge to the southeast within about 30km. The Kali Gandaki gorge lies between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. This creates a face-off of two eight-thousander giants over the deep Kali Gandaki valley.
