Annapurna I (8019m)


Mount Annapurna I (8091 meter) is situated in mid western part of Nepal. Annapurna range is a series of peaks 55 km long with the highest point, Annapurna I, which stands 8091m in altitude, making it the 10th-highest mountain in the world. Mount Annapurna I is located in a spectacular setup, east of a great gorge cutting through the Himalayas by the Kali Gandaki River, which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif lies only 34 km west.

Mount Annpaurna is derived from a Sanskrit word ‘Anna’ and ‘Purna’ which literally means “full of food” but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna is a goddess of fertility and agriculture and an avatar of Durga.  Annapurna I was the first 8,000m peak climbed by a French Expedition led by Maurice Herzog, who reached the summit on 3 June 1950. It took 20 years for another team to succeed on the same mountain summit. The 1970 ascent of the South Face of Annapurna by Chris Bonington’s team was a landmark in the history of mountaineering. This is a mountain that is among the most familiar of mountains, yet one that is very rarely climbed. The expedition trip to climb Mount Annapurna I begins from Kathmandu to Beni through Kaligandaki river.  And this region is protected by Annapurna Conservation Area led by Project (ACAP) and it is largest conservation area in Nepal. Team of Himalayan Shepherds will support all the all members of expedition to climb Mount Annapurna by using their expertise and extensive knowledge of climbing and mountaineering.
