Annapurna Expedition (8,091) is an enormous Himalayan massif. The tenth highest mountain in the world. In 1950, it became the first 8,000-meter mountain to be successfully climbed. It is located east of great gorge cut through the Himalaya by the Kali Gandaki River. The mountain has the glaciers on its western and northwestern slopes, which drain into this gorge.
Annapurna is a Sanskrit name that can be translated as the goddess of harvests or more simply the provider. One of Annapurna’s many highs peaks, five are labeled using some variations of the name Annapurna. Of these, the two highest (Annapurna I and II), stand like bookends at the western and eastern ends of the massif.
