Annapurna I (8091 m) is the 10th-highest mountain in the world and the 8th highest mountain in Nepal. It is the highest summit of the four main Summits of the Annapurna Massif in north-central Nepal in the Gandaki Province. Its climb has been famous since 1950 when Maurice Herzog led a French expedition and ascended successfully on June 3rd. Since then, the Southern route to Mount Annapurna became the most appropriate route to experience the beauty of the massif itself.
The largest conservation area of Nepal protects the four summits of Mount Annapurna and its surrounding area within the 7629 square km, The Annapurna Conservation Area. Despite not being the easiest to ascend, the glorious view of the entire Mt. Annapurna summit, Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Mt. Machhapuchhre (6993m), Mt. Nilgiri (6940 m), and Lamjung Himal (6983 m) will surely be worth your journey.

- Annapurna's standard route is via West Face and Northwest Ridge, which is a very challenging route with Annapurna being statistically one of the most dangerous 8000m peaks. The most dangerous and difficult is a section between camps 1 and 2 with a very unstable and broken glacier with dangling Seracs ready to crash any time, being a major cause of death, and eminent avalanche danger.
- The climb is done with 3 camps. It takes 2 Hrs. to get from the ABC to the bottom of the climb; facing a 70 deg steep 500m climb with fixed ropes and danger of falling services.
- From camp 1 to Camp 2 the climbing is slightly less steep but also difficult with still high objective avalanche danger. This section requires also a set of about 1000m of fixed ropes.
- The route from Camp 2 to Camp 3 requires switchbacks navigation on the snowfield between Seracs of the broken glacier. There are still 1000m of fixed ropes required.
- The Summit attempt is on the exposed ridge but it doesn’t require fixed ropes, it is done as a free ascent.
