Highlights

Overview

Annapurna IV is considered relatively easier mountain to climb among all the Annapurnas. The normal route is approached from Manang side. It requires two hours walking from the base camp to reach the bottom of the mountain. An approximately 65 - 70 degrees of steep climbing with fixed ropes of around 500 metres has to be used to reach camp I.
 
To reach camp II, another 1000 meters fixed ropes will be required along the ridge involving some stretches of steep climbing. Possibilities of avalanches between Camp I and Camp II is a risk for any mountaineer attempting to climb Annapurna IV.
