Only 15 people have climbed all 14 of them and the first to be ascended, Mount Annapurna, was climbed by a French team led by Maurice Herzog in 1950. Herzog's book "Annapurna" still remains as a classic in mountaineering literature. The team flew in a propellor plane from France to Delhi and upon arrival, were immediately jailed for not having the correct permits. After finally reaching Nepal and dining with the king, they set out to climb Mount Manaslu, but due to non-existent maps, they ended up getting lost and accidentally climbed Mount Annapurna. I am not going to tell you how it ends but I will say that it is an exciting read.
This September and October we are offering "basic" and "full-service" climbs on either of 2 big mountains: Mount Cho Oyu OR Mount Shishapangma PLUS the opportunity to combine the two in a special ‘Double-Header’ expedition and earn a special 20% discount on "Shisha".
