Maurice Herzog’s Annapurna Expedition has stood as an irony in the mountaineering world. The 10th highest mountain in the world was the first of the 8000 metre mountains to ever be climbed but since then climbing Annapurna has been notorious for its incredibly high fatality rate and has seen the lowest number of ascents as compared to other 8000 metre mountains. Annapurna is rarely attempted and summits on the mountain are rare. A combination of the overly difficult and steep terrain, unpredictable weather and risk of avalanches makes the Annapurna trekking Expedition one of the most challenging expeditions in the Himalayas and the world despite being only 8091 metres high.
Climbing Annapurna expedition is not for inexperienced mountaineers and requires logistics and preparation to the highest degree. The climb up Annpurna is usually done in 3 camps and the standard route is via the West face and Northwest Ridge.
