Annapurna is one of the most dangerous destinations of Himalayan expeditions. Ascent to the top requires a lot of experience, but the views reward all the hardships associated with climbing. An alternative is trekking around the mountain, which is offered by Asian Trekking. This company based in Nepal has been organizing extreme expeditions in the Himalayas for over four decades. The degree of difficulty depends on the advancement of the expedition members and the destination. The Annapurna trek is certainly one of the more demanding options, taking an average of 49 days.
The Nepalese company founded by Ang Tshering also offers climbing Ama Dablam: a six-thousander that delights tourists with its view of the Khumbu valley. The itinerary covers about 30 days, part of which is intended for acclimatization. Members of the expedition can count on the support of Sherpas, but also help in settling organizational matters, as well as in renting equipment. The company also offers climbing expeditions and treks to other great peaks of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest.
