ANNAPURNA III  EXPEDITION

ANNAPURNA III EXPEDITION

( 35 NIGHTS/ 36 DAYS )

overview

Annapurna III (7,555m / 24,787ft.) is the 42nd highest snow-capped mountain in the world. First ascended in 1961 by an Indian team on an expedition with an aim to reach the summit via the Northeast face. In 1970 a Japanese Women’s expedition was carried out for women empowerment. Similarly there are several such attempts of Annapurna III expedition peak climbing in Nepal by scientist and explorers from around the world. The Annapurna range of mountains are the most difficult to climb, and the most number of deaths have occurred in the Annapurna Massif. Novice climbers do not attempt the climb to the summit of the Annapurna III because of the extreme level of difficulty.

The Annapurna III expedition trekking in Nepal begins from Besisahar-Syange, and the summit of the mountain would be the end point of the trek. The scenery around the base camp area is breathtakingly beautiful. There are a number of tea houses, lodges and stops where you can relax and even spend the night if required. The panoramic view of the Lamjung Himals, the Fish Tail mountain – Machhapuchhre and the amazing Gangapurna is absolutely stunning. The Annapurna III Expedition – Trekking team is given training, excellent quality mountaineering gear, ropes for safety. It is a must for the climbers to have technical experience of climbing difficult peaks like the Annapurna III.
