Annapurna Expedition

Annapurna ExpeditionBefore 1948, Nepal was not opened to the rest of the world. After 1948, its boarders were opened and the group of American ornithologist climbed this mountain first time. It was further discovered by Swiss climbers in the north east of the country. In 1949, French Federation de la Montagne negotiated with the government of Nepal for the permission to climb one of the greatest peaks of the world.

According to the Indian survey, the word Annapurna is the combination of two Sanskrit words which means filled with food. The bend of the peak contains the root of another name Durga. It is one of the names of Hindu goddess. She is the wife of lord Shiva. During the expedition, Maurice Herzog said, the closest translation of this word is goddess of heaven.

Client Testimonials

While doing trek in the khumbu region, we will witness the different views of mountains such as Kwangde, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, the "horse saddle" of Kanteiga and of course the summit of Everest itself. We take a short rest for a while and it allows us little time for acclimatization. Here, you prepare yourself to explore the ascent of kalapatthar which is an altitude of 5545m. While climbing down from Lobuche, you will see some glacial moraine until the peak comes into view. Finally, you will be witnessing the north face of Mt. Everest . We return through a different route through Panboche to Lukla. We catch a flight for Kathmandu from Lukla.
