The Dhaulagiri also as known as "The white mountain" is quite easily recognized because of its unique, mound shape when can be seen from treks that leave from Pokhara.
Lying in the north-west side of Pokhara, admired by thousands of trekkers from Poonhill, Dhaulagiri resisted the attempts of mountaineers for a long time. In 1950 the French expedition led by Maurice Herzog had initially hoped to submit it, but after a lengthy reconnaissance, they decided it was too difficult and turned their attention to Annapurna I instead.
At the time, the European assumed Dhaulagiri, (also known as White Mountain in Sanskrit), as the world's highest mountain. Numerous attempts were conducted on Dhaulagiri, but not until 1960 that a Swiss expedition finally beat the mountain. On 13 May Peter Diener, Ernst Forrer, Albin Schelbert and Austrian mountaineer Kurt Diemberger reached the summit along with Sherpas Nyima Dorji and Nawang Dorji. Attempts since have tried different routes, but many climbers have perished on the killer white mountain.
