Annapurna IV Expedition (7525 m)

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 approx. 70 – 75 degrees of steep climbing with fix ropes of approx. 600m. to reach camp I. To reach camp II, approx. 1000m. fixed ropes will be required along the ridge and some stretches of steep climbing. From camp II to camp III is relatively easy with zigzag crossing and gradually climbing up. However, it will require approx. 1300 – 1500m. fixed rope will be required. From camp III to the summit, generally fixed rope is not required and the main rope is used. There are posibilities of avalanches between camp I and camp II.
