Annapurna IV

Annapurna IV


From £8,275
Altitude 7,525m Grade: 3D

Annapurna IV is located in the eastern part of the Annapurna Range south of the Thorong La.

This is a spectacular seven thousand-meter peak that can be completed in just 30 days. This climb will require four camps to be set above Base Camp (C1 5500m, C2 6100m, C3 6400m & C4 6850m) and is predominantly over snow and ice.
Higher than the average 7000m peak Annapurna IV is ideal training for Everest and avoids the need to do another 8000m peak. Not often frequented by commercial teams Annapurna IV requires considerable work to fix the mountain, as a result of this we will operate on a 1:1 sherpa ratio. A good peak to climb in the Spring when many other peaks are out of condition. Breath-taking views of Manaslu, Tilicho Peak, the Annapurna’s and the sacred Machapuchare.

It was a demanding trip that provided me with a great spectrum of experience.
Yet, above all, it was the people that I will remember. From clients to staff, all the greatest
and most colorful characters.
All that in a beautiful country.

John · 3 years ago ·

Epic high altitude adventure with mixed rock, snow and ice climb (Camp 1), large ice wall (Camp 3) and deep snow trekking. As we were the only team on the mountain it added to the remoteness. Fantastic base camp and Sherpa support throughout the expedition. Excellent food. Over the last 15 years I always advise customers, clients, friends and family to consider Adventure Peaks first and foremost.
[The info we received was] very thorough, informative and timely.
I've got the utmost respect for not only Stu's [trip leader] management skills (excellent ratings) but his actual Leadership skills are second to none. When you're in this type of adverse and remote environment it was very interesting observing how Stu operates and uses all aspects of Leadership.
[Overall, the highlights were] having the mountain to ourselves (remoteness), the High Camps and working with highly skilled individuals (teamwork).
