Annapurna IV Expedition Overview
About Annapurna IV Expedition:
Annapurna IV is considered relatively easier mountain to climb among all the Annapurnas. The normal route is approached from Manang side. It requires two hours walking from the base camp to reach the bottom of the mountain.
It requires approximately 65 – 70 degrees of steep climbing with fix ropes of approximately 500 metres to reach camp I. To reach camp II, approximately 1000 meters fixed ropes will be required along the ridge and some stretches of steep climbing. From camp II to camp III it is relatively easy with zigzag crossing and gradually climbing up. However, it will require approximately 1300 – 1500 meters fixed rope. From camp III to the summit, generally fixed rope is not required and the main rope is used. There are possibilities of avalanches between Camp I and Camp II.
