Annapurna is a peak series 53 km long with the highest point, Annapurna I, which stands 8091m/26546ft in altitude, making it the 10th-highest summit in the world, located in an impressive group, east of the biggest ravine of Nepal cutting through the Himalayas by the Kali Gandaki River, which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif lies 31 km. The climb up Annapurna is usually done in 3 camps and the standard route is via the West face and Northwest Ridge
Annapurna I was the first 8,000m/26248ft peak climbed by a French Expedition led by Maurice Herzog, who reached the summit on 3 June 1950. It took 20 years long for another team to succeed on the same mountain summit. A combination of the overly difficult and steep terrain, unpredictable weather and risk of avalanches makes the Annapurna Expedition one of the most challenging expeditions, Annapurna is rarely attempted and summits on the mountain are rare.
