Trip Introduction

Annapurna South (also known as Annapurna Dakshin) was first climbed in 1964 by a Japanese expedition, via the North face. Also, Annapurna Dakshin was attempted by Italian team in 1988. The south face base camp is situated at 4000 meter & the advance base camp is on west bank of the glacier between Annapurna south & mount Himchuli. Climb up to the glacier is a little bit difficult gullies on all sides. The camp 1 is fixed at the 5000 meter. Camp-2 is fixed at 5970meter; and camp 3 is at 6400meter high. From Camp 3 the summit can be made.
For climbing Annapurna south seems easy from North East route of side and the base camp will be at Annapurna Sanctuary at 4300 meters.

The expedition starts from Kathmandu to Pokhara by private bus and stay over night is Pokhara, then the next day drive goes to Dhampus, then the trek stars to Pathana, a little temperate region of forested hillsides such as; Magar and Gurung villages through where the trekking route of Annapurna South face of Expedition goes. As the team move higher altitude through the rhododendron woodlands, the views of Annapurna and mount Machhapuchhre are amazing sceneries and towards the Modi River, the greenery valley’s nice views are there on the way. On reaching Ghandruk, Tadapani & Kopra pasture, our campsite remains right below the Mt. Annapurna south face. Trails go tranquilly, with a spectacular highland experiences. We set up the Base Camp there for climbing to Mt. Annapurna South. After concluding the expedition the trek backs to Pokhara leads us via Ghorepani and Poon hill where you can envisage one of the most famous panoramic views of mount Annapurna and Dhaulagiri rage.
