Annapurna Expedition


    Annapurna is a huge Himalayan massif, the tenth highest mountain in the world. It is lies in the central-western Part of Nepal and very famous mountains range for visiting of thousands of tourists, located In Nepal.

    A French expedition led by Maurice Herzog explored the kali Gandaki valley in 1950. After deciding that Dhaulagiri was too difficult, they turned their attention to climbing Annapurna. Hampered by inaccurate maps, they spent considerable time and effort finding a way to the foot of the mountain. Annapurna was not climbed again until 1970, when a British army expedition followed essentially the same route as Herzog. At the same time Chris Bonington let a successful British expedition to the very steep and difficult south face. However, all the routes on the mountain pose severe difficulties and hence it is probably why fewer climbers have reached the summit in comparison to other 80000m peaks. The best climbing season is on April -May and late September- October.
