    About - Annapurna South Expedition (7,219 m)

    Annapurna South, one of the offshoots of the tenth highest mountain in the world, is located at an elevation of 7219m within the 55km long Annapurna massif. The Kali Gandaki River, which divides Annapurna from the Dhaulagiri range, cuts a large gap through the Himalayan Mountains to the east. One of the well-known 7,000-meter peaks, Annapurna South, offers breathtaking panoramas of the Himalayas, as well as vegetation, animals, and challenging treks. You can see the massive mass of Mt. Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre as well as the Annapurna in its entirety.

    The Annapurna Conservation Area, or ACAP, includes Annapurna South among its protected areas. There are many well-known trekking routes and expedition peaks throughout the entire area. You can anticipate seeing some of the uncommon and unusual flora and fauna since the area is protected by the government of Nepal. With steep terrain on the climax edge and the crossing of steep, precarious slopes beneath the highest point, the Annapurna South trek is regarded as difficult and challenging. For individuals seeking to conquer Annapurna South's highest point, previous experience of climbing a mountain peak or trekking a peak is advised, as well as being in good physical and mental health condition.

    Route to Annapurna South Expedition

    Annapurna south lies beyond one of the magical mountains Mt. fishtail aka Macchapuchhre so the journey towards Annapurna south will provide you an amazing glimpse of two base camps namely Machhapuchhre base camp and Annapurna South base camp. It's the peak where you get to experience the bases of two amazing mountains. There are altogether four camps set up towards the peak.
    Annapurna South Base Camp: Situated at an elevation of 4,000m the base camp is the first acclimatization zone for climbers. You’ll be taking the trekking trails to the base camp which will allow you to understand the high Himalayan altitudes and how to prevent any kind of sickness you might suffer in those elevations. It's an important hub on your expedition journey.
    Camp I: Camp I would be situated around 5,000m.
    Camp II: Camp II would be set up around 5,970m.
    Camp III: Camp III would be set up around 6400m. It's the final camp before the peak. Here your professional guide will prepare to push onto the summit depending on the weather conditions. If the conditions are favorable you will be pushing for the summit otherwise you’ll be descending towards base camp and preparing to summit again.

    Essential Information

    Tourist Visa
    Immigration Office, TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) under the Department of Immigration has been facilitating tourists flying to Nepal by providing visas on Arrival. To obtain a visa upon arrival by air in Nepal you must fill in an application form and provide a passport copy. Visa application forms are available at the arrival hall, though some airlines provide this form on the flight. There are now visa registration machines in the immigration hall for people with electronic passports, which will automatically fill out the visa form for you after inserting your passport. Or, you can get a visa from Nepalese Diplomatic Missions stationed in your own country before your arrival.

    On Arrival Visa Fee at Entry Points
    15 Days – 30 USD
    30 Days – 50 USD
    90 Days – 125 USD

    Getting in Nepal
    There are many entry points in Nepal but most of you will take a flight to Kathmandu which is the only entry point for travelers who are entering by air. Your expedition will officially begin after flying to Kathmandu where you will be picked up by a Luxury Holidays Nepal representative at the airport, so you need to provide your arrival details in advance. And also lets us know if your flight gets delayed right away so we can manage everything accordingly.

    Domestic Flights
    Domestic flights in Nepal are the main intercommunication to reach the region where you are going for your expedition as most of these regions are disconnected by road transport. Your flights into the Khumbu and any other region that are mentioned in your trip program will be reserved by us on your behalf. Due to the terrain and landscapes of Nepal domestic flights might get caught in weather delays which is why we recommend your return flight back home be changeable at any time.

    Altitude Sickness
    Altitude Sickness is an effect of high-altitude atmospheric pressure that results in a quick change in oxygen level and air pressure of the human body. The symptoms will arise while walking at a high altitude without properly acclimatizing the body. It can happen to anyone even if they have great physical fitness if they climb faster at a higher altitude. It is better to ascend gradually to prevent altitude sickness.

    Money
    There is good access to ATMs anywhere in most city areas, however, you will find it hard in rural areas. Different banks have their maximum withdrawal amount limit. Most hotels, restaurants, airlines, and travel agents accept cards as well. It is more important to have enough cash as there will be very limited or no ATM access in trekking areas and also some reserve cash for emergencies. USD is selectively acceptable in Nepal but still, you need to make sure you have Nepalese currency on hand during the expedition.

    Tipping
    There is no significant rule about tipping your guide or porter but it has been more common in Nepal. It is on you to decide whether to thank the guide and porter with tips or not. But in most cases, guides and porters expect tips from you though they don’t ask for tips verbally.

    Drinking-Water
    The water quality in Nepal isn’t the greatest so it is better to use a water filtration or purification tablet. You can also drink boiled water if you like. Make sure to drink a lot of water during the expedition as your body requires more at a higher altitude.

    Safety
    Nepal is a heaven for adventures and is comparatively a safe destination for those adventures. There is a low rate of serious crime however you should still take sensible safety measures. Keep an eye on pick-pocketers and snatchers in buses and tourist areas. You can avoid walking with a large amount of cash on your own. Always let your guide know if you’re going out during the trip.

    Internet and SIM Card
    Most cities have extensive access to the internet, also hotels, restaurants, and cafes that offer free WIFI. But outside the cities, in the remote trekking areas, it’s fair to non-existent. During the expedition, the internet is available at the base camp for a certain amount of cost. You can easily purchase a SIM card at an affordable cost. You can use the data package using the SIM card as well.

    Vaccinations & Immunization
    Before traveling to Nepal, please consult your travel clinic for updated information on vaccinations and immunizations. The commonly recommended vaccinations are Chickenpox, Diphtheria-Tetanus, Polio, Shingles, Covid-19, Hepatitis A & B, Encephalitis, Malaria, Measles, Rabies, Typhoid, and Yellow Fever.
