The real altitude of Mt Dhaulagiri is (8,167m) from sea level.  It is situated on the north-west of Lake City called Pokhara in the western part of Nepal and southern side of the Nepal and Tibet border. Mt. Dhaulagiri is one of the most formidable peaks to climb with the first successful summit only in 1960 by the Swiss following from the Northeast ridge. This mountain was first sighted by the British surveyors in India in the early 1800s but remained virtually unknown until a Swiss aerial survey in 1949. Five ridges buttress Dhaulagiri l and even up until the early 1980’s only the Northeast ridge had been successfully climbed. Dhaulagiri is considered the most interesting peak among the eight thousand meters one.
