Annapurna North Base Camp Trek is proposed to those who like to trek in wilderness and less explored area in famous Annapurna region. No Mountains higher than 8000 meters had never been climbed before 1950. A French expedition group led by Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal became the first climbers in History to climb the summit of Himalayan Mountain Annapurna I in 3 June 1950. This expedition group wanted to try either Dhaulagiri (8167 meters) or Annapurna I (8091 meters). The team initially make a move to start looking for a route to either Dhaulagiri or Annapurna. Deciding that Dhaulagiri was too difficult, they found their way to the North Face of Annapurna. The route now is popular as French North Face Route.They reached the summit of Annapurna without oxygen. Down to Annapurna became a great challenge and adventurous for them. It was a crazy descent, dodging the snow storm, avalanches, and other miss happens. Both barely make it back to camp.
Annapurna was not climbed again until 1970 after that British Army expedition followed the same route to get in to the summit. Mountain lovers, adventurous people in few number are now exploring Annapurna North Face Base Camp, despite of difficult trail. So fresh and everlasting experience awaits for you.
