Tour Details
Overview

Annapurna Expedition is one the best expedition in Nepal. Annapurna (Sanskrit, Nepali, Newar) is a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes one peak over 8,000 meters (26,000 ft), thirteen peaks over 7,000 meters (23,000 ft), and sixteen more over 6,000 meters (20,000 ft).The massif is 55 kilometers (34 mi) long, and is bounded by the Kali Gandaki Gorge on the west, the Marshyangdi River on the north and east, and by Pokhara Valley on the south. At the western end the massif encloses a high basin called the Annapurna Sanctuary. Annapurna I Main is the tenth highest mountain in the world at 8,091 meters (26,545 ft) above sea level, and was the first of the Eight-thousands to be climbed. Annapurna peaks are among the world’s most dangerous mountains to climb, although in more recent history, using only figures from 1990 and after, Kanchenjunga has a higher fatality rate. By March 2012, there had been 191 summit ascents of Annapurna I Main, and 61 climbing fatalities on the mountain. This fatality-to-summit ratio (32%) is the highest of any of the eight-thousands. In particular, the ascent via the south face is considered, by some, the most difficult of all climbs.

Annapurna is one of the world’s most technical mountains for that reason it has a bad fatality to summit ratio. The climb is a serious adventure and one of the most difficult 8000m/26,241ft peaks in the world. The South Face of Annapurna is one of the largest and steepest faces in the world. The face is awesome in size and difficulty. The South Face is 3000 feet higher than the Southwest face of Mt. Everest. The South Face of Annapurna is relatively free of the terrible avalanche hazards that plague the standard routes on the North Face of the mountain. Despite the great difficulty the South Face is a logical route to the summit of Mt. Annapurna. We provide our best quality of services to our clients to make their trip most memorable and joyful.
