Of the 8,000ers I saw in Nepal, Dhaulagiri is unequivocally the most beautiful and impressive. It stands head and shoulders above its satellite peaks, and is geometrically blessed with several aesthetic cornices ridges and majestic fluted faces. This is this east face at sunrise. Dhaulagiri from the Tukuche area, Nepal.
