Mt. Annapurna (8,091m) is taken from Sanskrit word that mean “Sustenance and filled with”, so that the name would translate into the Goddess rich in Sustenance or simply “The Provider”. It was first ascended by the French Expedition (M. Herzog & L. Lachenal) in 1950. Only 96 climbers on 106 expeditions reached the summit at the end of 2002 whereas 52 climbers had died on the mountain.

A French expedition was lead by Maurice Herzog explored the Kali Gandaki Valley in 1950. After deciding the Dhaulagiri was too difficult so that they turned their attention to climb Annapurna. Where, we can find four summits called Annapurna; which is the entire massif forms, barrier on the Northern side of the Pokhara valley. The main summit lies at the West part of the Annapurna Sanctuary, all the routes of the mountain pose several difficulties so that it is probably very few climbers had been able to ascend the summit in the comparison of the other 8,091m peaks of Nepal.
