WHAT DOES DHAULAGIRI MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Dhaulagiri

Dhaulagiri

The Dhaulagiri massif in Nepal extends 120 km from the Kaligandaki River west to the Bheri. This massif is enclosed on the north and southwest by tributaries of the Bheri and on the southeast by Myagdi Khola. Dhaulagiri I at 8,167 metres ranks seventh among Earth's fourteen peaks over eight thousand metres. It was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by a Swiss/Austrian/Nepali expedition. The mountain's name is धौलागिरी in Nepali. This comes from Sanskrit where धवल means dazzling, white, beautiful and गिरि means mountain. Dhaulagiri I is also the highest point of the Gandaki river basin. Annapurna I is only 34 km. east of Dhaulagiri I. The Kali Gandaki River flows between through its notable gorge, said to be the world's deepest. The town of Pokhara is south of the Annapurnas, an important regional center and the gateway for climbers and trekkers visiting both ranges as well as a tourist destination in its own right.
