Named for the Hindu Goddess of food and nourishment, who is said to live among its summits, Annapurna is a vast massif in central Nepal with 13 peaks over 7,000m, and one that sits at 8,091m, making it the world’s 10th highest mountain. Annapurna was the first of the 8,000ers to be climbed, and the passes around the massif make it a popular trekking destination. But this is no easy mountain - the steep, south face is technical, tricky, and frequently deadly. A place where being guided by the best of the best makes a real difference.


The thrilling 8000m peak :

The popularity of the Annapurna Circuit as a trekking destination often lulls people into a false sense of security about the dangers of the mountain itself. While it might be only the tenth highest mountain in the world, Annapurna I, the main peak, is arguably the deadliest, with one of the highest death-to-successful summit ratios of any of the 8,000ers. Put simply, this is not a mountain that you can afford to underestimate.

Royal Nepal Group’s Annapurna itinerary is based on the tried and tested expedition plan implemented by our founder Nimsdai during his record-breaking Project Possible year when he climbed all of the world’s 8,000m peaks in record time. Annapurna’s relative accessibility means we recommend leaving just 40 days for the entire trip, which includes a lengthy 26-day climbing window and plenty of time to acclimatize. 

We guarantee a 1:1 client-to-guide ratio, and always keep four, highly experienced guides in reserve, ready to go at a moment’s notice to help out where needed. Anything that can be controlled, we will control. From carrying in our own food to pitching tents and fixing ropes all the way up the route, we do everything ourselves. This means we’re never reliant on third parties, reducing the chances of any misunderstandings, which could damage your summit chances.

Our handpicked guiding team, chosen using a rigorous process, know the routes like the back of their hand, but they also speak the language. This further reduces the chances of any miscommunication.

The Royal Nepal Group team aren’t just record-breaking mountaineers, they’ve hugely experienced mountain rescuers, with extensive training in high-altitude recovery techniques. This, combined with our intimate knowledge of the mountain, means you’ll be in the safest possible hands when taking on this tricky, technical climb.
