Annapurna Massif

Published Date: Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Annapurna Massif includes over thirty peaks with elevations starting at 6,000 meters (20,000'). The Annapurna Massif, home to Annapurna, 8,091 m (25,500'), was the first and largest conservation area in Nepal. Much like Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks, the rocks near Annapurna's summit are made of limestone which was formed at the bottom of warm ocean millions of years ago. Annapurna is the most dangerous peak in the Massif with a death rate of over one-third of all climbers.

It is also home to several world-class treks, including the famed Annapurna Circuit. While many of the Annapurna peaks are the world's most dangerous mountains to climb, many of its treks are also dangerous. In December 1997, many greats of the climbing world perished in an avalanche on Annapurna's slopes. And, in 2014, 43 people died on Thorung La Pass while trekking the Annapurna Circuit. This was the single worst trekking accident in history and was a reminder that the area around this massif needs to be treated with the utmost respect.

Of special interest is the black wind on the Massif circuit; named after the appearance of the vicious swirling winds that whip around the massif during storms. Particles of dust and dirt in the air, give the winds a black appearance, thus black wind.
