Annapurna Expedition Overview
Extending from Kali Gandaki gorge in the west to Marshyangdi in the east ‘Annapurna’ is one of the most significant peaks of Nepal for Annapurna treks and expedition. It’s formed with four summits creating a barrier on the northern side of picturesque ‘Pokhara valley’. The main Mt. Annapurna peak stands on the west of the Annapurna sanctuary route, which is the most popular trekking routes of Nepal.
Annapurna caught mountaineers attention only when Herzog and Lachenai first climbed the mountain in 1950. Standing high at 8091 meters, Annapurna is world’s 10th highest mountain. The mountain has glaciers on its western and north-western slopes which drain into a great gorge cut through the Himalayan by the Kali-gandaki River. All the routes to the mountain ensure severe difficulties and challenges with plenty of steep climbing.
The normal route to the mountain approaches from Manang with two hours of walk from the base camp to reach the bottom of the mountain. With plenty of steep climbing, zigzag crosses and possibilities of avalanches along the camps, Annapurna foothills treks and expedition has caused more faculties than any other mountain expeditions.
While we try our level best to follow through the itinerary, the adventure travel in the remote mountain region is unpredictable and involves high risk. Therefore, our expedition leader has power to amend the itinerary if he thinks it’s necessary due to safety concerns.
