Annapurna - I Expedition
Annapurna I (8091m) was first climbed by M. Herzog & L. Lachenal in 1950.The name "Annapurna" is a sanskrit word which when broken down, would mean, "Sustenance" and "filled with". So the name would translate into "The Goddess rich in Sustenance" or simply "The Provider".The main summit stands to the west of the Annapurna Sanctuary.It was the first eight thousanders to be climbed, this feat was accomplished by the French.
However, all the routes on the Annapurna I (8091m) is more techincal,hence it is probably why fewer climbers have reached the summit in comparison to other 8000m peaks in Nepal.
