A unique all women team heading for The White Mountain
Klára Kolouchová from the Czech Republic together with four partners, all with considerable 8,000m experience, are attempting Dhaulagiri this spring.
Dhaulagiri is reflected as one of the most fascinating peaks to climb. Situated in western Nepal, it is one of the coveted 8,000m peaks, standing as the seventh highest mountain in the world.
In Sanskrit, Dhaulagiri translates into Dhavali giri, meaning “White Mountain” and is the highest mountain that lies entirely within Nepal.
Mt. Dhaulagiri has 5 ridges and south and west faces. The International Women’s Expedition will be attempting to climb the Northeast route to the summit. The team also jointly decided to support Prayaas, a local NGO that helps pregnant women and new-born infants.
Klára has been proudly scouting super.natural products since 2019, when she conquered K2 (the second highest peak in the world), completing her collection of the three highest peaks in the world – Everest, K2 and Kanchenjunga - a combination that handful of women have climbed.
