Mt. Annapurna South Expedition 7,219m.

Annapurna South Expedition (7219m) is a spectacular adventure that takes you to one of the most beautiful and challenging peaks of Nepal. This thrilling expedition in Nepal combines trekking through remote and scenic trails, exploring diverse forests, valleys, and villages, and climbing to the summit of the majestic Annapurna South, which is part of the Annapurna massif.

Our journey begins from Nayapul, a small town near Pokhara, where we start our trek along the Modi Khola river. We follow the trail to the picturesque village of Ghandruk, home to the Gurung people, who are famous for their hospitality and culture. We enjoy the views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Machhapuchhre from the village, and visit the Gurung Museum to learn more about their history and traditions. We then trek through the largest Rhododendron forest in Nepal, where we can see various species of birds and flowers. We also pass by some waterfalls and streams, adding more charm to our trek. We reach Kopra Ridge, where we set up our campsite under the shadow of Annapurna I, the tenth-highest mountain in the world. From here, we hike to the sacred Khair Lake, also known as Baraha Pokhari, where we perform a puja ceremony to seek blessings for our climb. The lake is surrounded by snow-capped peaks and offers a serene atmosphere for meditation and reflection. We then ascend to the Base Camp of Annapurna South, where we prepare for the final push to the summit. The climb is challenging but rewarding, as we witness the panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges from the top. We also feel a sense of accomplishment and pride for reaching one of the most coveted peaks in Nepal. After achieving our goal, we descend back to Base Camp and retrace our steps to Nayapul, where we end our memorable expedition.
