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.
