World’s 7th Highest Mountain from 35000 feet – Dhaulagiri

On my flight from Kathmandu, Nepal to New Delhi, India, I took a seat on the starboard side (right) of the aircraft to be able to view the 7th highest mountain in the world - Dhaulagiri.Wikipedia: Dhaulagiri is the seventh highest mountain in the world at 8,167 metres (26,795 ft) and is one of fourteen over eight thousand metres. Dhaulagiri, which is in Nepal, was first climbed on May 13, 1960 by a Swiss/Austrian expedition.The mountain's name is धौलागिरी (dhaulāgirī) or धवलागिरी (dhawalāgirī) in Hindi and Nepali. This comes from Sanskrit where धवल (dhawala) means dazzling, white, beautiful[2] and गिरि (giri) means mountain.[3] It is often called Dhaulagiri I, denoting the highest summit in its massif called Dhaulagiri Range (Nepali: श्रृंखला, shrinkhalā), Dhaulagiri Himāl (Nepali: हिमाल) or The Dhaulagiris. This massif extends 120 km from the Kaligandaki River west to the Bheri. Dhaulagiri I is the easternmost high peak. Dhaulagiri I is also the highest point of the Gandaki river basin.Annapurna I (8,091m/26,545 ft) is only 34 km. east of Dhaulagiri I. The Kaligandaki River flows between through its notable gorge, said to be the world's deepest. The town 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.CREDITS: This video contains sound from freesound.org under attribution licence Sound used: dreamy 0E_31mi2.wav Artist: Setuniman URL: http://www.freesound.org/people/Setuniman/sounds/142600/ Commercial use agreement: Available on the direct URL of the artist as well as here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
