Ticino Treks has catered the needs of mountaineers climbing Annapurna Expedition/Mountaineering in a professional and committed manner. Annapurna, 8091m, was first climbed by a French expedition in 1950. There are four summits called Annapurna, the entire massif forms a barrier on the northern side of the pokhara Valley. The main summit of the Annapurna sanctuary/Annapurna base camp, Annapurna II is above Chame, about 24km to the east. Fewer climbers have reached the summit of Annapurna than any other 8000m peak in Nepal. Only 96 climbers on 106 expeditions had reached the summit by the end of 2002. 52 climbers had died on the mountain.

A French expedition led by Maurice Herzog explored the Kali Gandaki valley in 1950. After deciding that Dhaulagiri climbing was too difficult, they turned there attention to climbing Annapurna. Hampered by inaccurate maps, they spent considerable time and effort finding a way to the foot of the mountain. They eventually ascended via the Miristi khola to the north face and made what was the first ascent of any 8000m peak on June 3, Just before the start of the monsoon. The summiteer Suffered frostbite on the descent and were finally evacuated back to the road head in india. Annapurna was not climbed again until 1970, when a British army expedition followed essentially the same route as Herzog. At the same time Chris Bonington let a successful British expedition to the very steep and difficult south face of Annapurna climbing.
