Annapurna expedition I has the highest ratio of deaths to successful ascents for every two climbers who reach the summit, one dies. These statistics explain why there has been no genuinely commercial expedition to the peak so far- the avalanche prone north face and the difficult south and north west faces are likely to ensure that there will be no change to this in the coming years. Annapurna is the 10th highest mountain in the world (8091m) located east of the great gorge cut through the Himalayas by the Kali Gandaki River which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif which lies 34km west of Annapurna I. Annapurna is the least climbed mountaineering peaks and it has a fierce reputation, second only to K2 in terms of the ratio of summiteers dying on descent to the successful climbs.
Annapurna I mountain was first climbed by French expedition led by Maurice Herzog in 1950. The south face of Annapurna was first climbed in 1970 by British expedition led by Chris Bonington. In 1987, Polish expedition team made the first winter ascent of Annapurna I. Annapurna holds the highest fatality rate among all 14 eight thousands peak. As of 2005, there have been only 103 successful summit attempts, and 56 lives have been lost on the mountain, many of the avalanches for which it is known.
