Annapurna I is the 10th highest peak in the world which has an altitude of about 8,091 meters. It is a series of peaks which is 55m long with the highest point, Annapurna I. It is located in a great setup which is at the east of a great canyon cutting through the Himalayas by Kali Gandaki River which separates Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. The Annapurnas are considered one of the most difficult and dangerous mountains to climb since they are much inclined to have avalanches and all the available routes are much difficult for climbers.
