Annapurna I is the tenth highest mountain in the world at 8,091 metres (26,545 ft) above sea level. It is part of a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes thirteen peaks over 7,000 metres (22,966 ft), and sixteen more over 6,000 metres (19,685 ft).
Annapurna I was the first of the eight-thousanders to be climbed and the only 8,000 meter-peak to be summited with a safe descent on the first try. Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal, of the French Annapurna expedition led by Herzog, reached the summit on June 3, 1950.
Historically, the Annapurna peaks have been among the world’s most treacherous mountains to climb with the particular case of the extremely steep south face of Annapurna I Main – a wall of rock that rises 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) – making it one of the most difficult climbs in the world.
