Annapurna (8091m) is the tenth highest mountain in the world. It is located east of a great gorge cut through the Himalayan by the Kali Gandaki River. The mountain has glaciers on its western and northwest slopes, which drain into this gorge. The name supposedly means “Goddess of the Harvests.”

The Annapurna I  is considered to be the world's most dangerous mountains to climb. It is prone to avalanches and the high rate of fatality. On June 3, 1950, it became the first 8000-meter peak successfully climbed by Maurice Herzong and Louis Lachenal, of a French expedition. The south face of Annapurna was first climbed in 1970 by a British expedition led by Chris Bonington and including the Alpinist Ian Clough. He was killed by falling off an ice-pillar at the time of descent. In 1978 an expedition led by Arlene Blum became the first American team to climb Annapurna I. The expedition was also remarkable for being comprised entirely of women. On February 3, 1987, Jerzy Kukuczka and Artur Hajzer, both Polish climbers, made the first ascent of an eight-thousander in winter.

Himalayan Global Expedition and the Annapurnas

Himalayan Global Treks and Expedition organize Mt. Annapurna I Expedition every year in spring and autumn. In spring the first week of April is the best time to start and to end the beginning of June Mt. Annapurna I Expedition. As the temperature in the Annapurna climbing area gets from cold to hot, it is more convenient for approaching the summit after sufficient acclimatization and practice at various camps. For this reason, we strongly recommend our climbers to choose the spring season for their Annapurna I Expedition. However, we do organize the Expedition even in autumn as well.
