Annapurna Expedition

Trip Overview

Annapurna I (8091m/26,545ft.) is the world's tenth highest peak and Nepal's eighth highest peak. Annapurna I is the lowest 8000m peak, but it is also one of the most difficult peaks to climb in the Himalayas. Strictly closed to foreigners until 1948, Annapurna (8,091 m.) was the first foreign nationals in 1949, when we allowed The Annapurna Expedition to a group of American ornithologists, followed by a team of Swiss climbers led by Rene Dittert. The team explored the breathtaking Himalayas of this country's northeast. The then-Nepalese government granted permission to the French Federation de la Montagne in 1949 to climb one of Nepal's highest peaks.

The name 'Annapurna' is formed of the words 'Anna' and 'Purna,' which mean "filled with foods/grains." The goddess 'Durga,' the Hindu Divine Mother Goddess, also inspired the name Annapurna.

Annapurna I was the first mountain peak over 8000 meters to be climbed On June 3, 1950 by French climbers Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal. It wasn't until 1970 that it became a reality. Based on the number of fatalities, the Annapurna Expedition is regarded as the most dangerous Himalayan peak to climb. Annapurna has had a less successful attempt and is regarded as a difficult mountain peak to climb. 

The Annapurna Expedition was re-summoned from its Northwest Ridge. The exact site of the peak can be found at the coordinates 28°35'45"N83°49'20"E. Annapurna I (8091m/26,545ft), Annapurna II (7937m/26,040ft), Annapurna III (7555m/24,786ft), Annapurna IV (7525m/24,688ft), Gangapurna (7455m/24,457ft), and Annapurna South (7219m/23,684ft) are the six major peaks.

The south face of Annapurna is less popular among climbers than the north face. Our itinerary also includes visits to Ghasa, Thulo Bugin, Mristi Khola, and Annapurna Base Camp on the north/northwestern face.
