Annapurna Expedition 2013

Annapurna (8091) the beautiful mountain which is tenth highest mountain in the world, located east of a great gorge cut through the Himalaya by the Kali Gandaki River. Annapurna was first climbed by a French expedition in 1950 (M. Herzog & L. Lachenal). There are four summits called Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, the entire massif forms a barrier on the northern side of the Pokhara Valley.
A French expedition team led by M. Herzog explored the Kali Gandaki valley in 1950. After deciding that Dhaulagiri climbing was too difficult, then they turned their attention to climbing Annapurna. Hampered by inaccurate maps, they spent considerable time and effort finding a way to the foot of the mountain. They eventually ascended via the Miristi khola to the north face and made what was the first ascent of any 8000m peak on Jun 3, just before the start of the monsoon. The summiteers Suffered frostbite on the descent and were finally evacuated back to the road head in India. Annapurna was not climbed again until 1970, when a British army expedition followed essentially the same route as Herzog. At the same time Chris Bonington let a successful British expedition to the very steep and difficult south face of Annapurna climbing. The best climbing seasons is on April, May (pre-monsoon) and late September, October (post monsoon).
