There are four summits called Annapurna ; the entire massif forms a barrier on the northern side of the Pokhara valley. The main summit is to the west of Annapurna sanctuary.
A French Expedition led by Maurice Her zong explored the Kali Gandaki valley in 1950. After descending Dhaulagiri was too difficult, they turned their attention to combing Annapurna. Hampered by inaccurate maps, they spent considerable time and effort finding a way to the foot of the mountain. They eventually ascended via Miristi Khola to the north face of mount Annapurna on June 1950, just before the start of the Monsoon. The Summiteers suffered frostbite on descends wand were finally evacuated back to the road head in India.
Annapurna was not climbed again until 1970, when British army expedition followed essentially the same route as Herzog. At same time Cris Boning led successful British expedition to the very steep and difficult south face. With only 109 ascents, Annapurna has had fewer successful climbs than any other 8000m peak.
