The next quadrennial Joint Services expedition will take place during April and May 2016 in the Dhaulagiri region of Nepal. The overall ethos of the expedition is to conduct a number of high quality medical research projects, through the involvement of a large number of trekkers, develop future mountaineers and climb an 8000m peak in a credible style. The expedition is supported by HRH the Duke of York as Patron and the Surgeon General as research patron.
The Main Team and HADT Squad has been selected. There is still opportunity to organise or be part of a Trekking Team. The Main and HADT Squad need a considerable amount of mountaineering experience, both technical and at altitude. The Trekking Teams will be organised at unit level under the Dhaulagiri 2016 umbrella.
