ANNAPURNA I  EXPEDITION

ANNAPURNA I EXPEDITION

(53 NIGHTS/ 54 DAYS )

overview

Annapurna I (8,091m / 26,545 ft.) is the main peak in the 55km long stretched Annapurna massif of 30 peaks above 6,000, 7,000 and 8,000 meters. The Annapurna I is the 10th highest peak in the world. In 1950 the first ascent to the summit was made by a French expedition that was led by Maurice Herzog. The Mount Annapurna 1 First Expedition gained significant popularity as the first 8,000m mountain climb in history. There have been several expeditions to the summit of the towering peak since the first attempt, and the fatality rate of the Annapurna massif is the highest because of the obstacles and the life-threatening climb.

The Mt. Annapurna 1 trekking begins at Lete with an exposure to lush-green forests, and local villages. There are several teahouses and lodges where you can take rest for a night and then start fresh on the next morning. The end point of the trip is the summit of the mighty Mt. Annapurna, many trekkers return from the base camp considering the difficulty of the climb and the unpredictable weather conditions. The Annapurna Sanctuary visit and the Annapurna circuit treks are some of the most famous treks popular among mountain trekkers around the world. The Annapurna climbing expedition adventure requires technical climbing skills, high level of fitness and reliable climbing gears.
