ANNAPURNA SOUTH  EXPEDITION

ANNAPURNA SOUTH EXPEDITION

(41 NIGHTS/ 42 DAYS )

overview

Annapurna South (7,219m / 23,684 ft.) also known as Moditse or Annapurna Dakshin, is one of the most popular expedition peaks in Nepal. The route to the base camp is one of the main attractions of the trek apart from the ecstatic feeling of being on top of the exquisite rise in the Annapurna region. The first Annapurna South Expedition (7219 m) was made in 1964 by a team of Japanese mountaineers. The team chose the north ridge to go up to the summit and also experienced viewing the Mt. Hiunchuli from top for the first time.

The Annapurna south expedition starts Nayapul and continues to entice climbers with the majestic mountain views and picturesque scenery of forests and the habitation. The Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mt Machhapuchhre can be seen from the tip of the gigantic Moditse. On the way back of the expedition, you will come across the famous Ghorepani Poon Hill, the breathtaking views of the Annapurna region is priceless from here, especially during the spring season when the clouds are not blocking your view. The difficulty level is high and novices are given proper training to build their technical climbing skills for this trek.
