It is situated in the Annapurna mountain range of Gandaki Province, north central of Nepal. It forms a ridge some 30 miles (48km) long between the gorges of the Kali (Kali Gandaki; west) and Marsyandi( east) rivers north of the town of Pokhara. Its parent peak is Cho Oyu. The massif contains four main summits, two of which-Annapurna I (26,545feet[8,091 meters]) and Annapurna II (26,040 feet[7,937 meters]) stand at the western and eastern ends of the range, respectively; Annapurna III (24,786 feet[7,555 meters]) and Annapurna IV(24,688 feet[7,525]) lie between them.
Although climbers had reached 28,150 feet(8,580 meters) on Mount Everest by 1924, Annapurna I became famous in 1950 as the first peak above 26,000 feet(8,000 meters) to be ascended to the summit. The feat was achieved by a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog, who with Louis Lachenal reached the top on June 3. Annapurna IV was climbed on May 30, 1995 by German team of Harald Biller, Heinz Steinmetz, and Jurgen Wellenkamp; and Annapurna II on May 17,1960 by the British climbers Richard Grant and Chris Bonington and the Sherpa Ang Nyima in an expedition led by James O.M. Roberts. In 1970 an all-women Japanese climbing team scaled Annapurna III – article by John M. Cunningham
Acme Adventure Treks Private Limited aims to collect all real news and article to give right information’s. Nepal Government has launched project called The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) in 1986 to achieve a balance between environmental conservation and socio-economic development, through people’s participation. ACAP operates under the guidance of the National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC), formerly King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation (KMTNC).
Tourism is an important and fast-growing industry in the ACA, which is visited annually by more than 150,000. The land is fragile and its resources are under pressure due to human activities. NTNC-ACAP aims to explore the long-term potentials of tourism and development while minimizing its threats.
ACAP is well-known for being the first organization in the world to introduce Integrated Conservation and Development Projects (ICDP) as an important part of Protected Area (PA) management. Before this, people were seen as enemies of species and habitat conservation and PA’s were usually fenced off to keep people out and animals in. The new approach recognizes the importance of involving local people in the management of PA’s and in improving their living conditions. ACAP’s ICDP includes conservation (nature and cultural heritage), education, institutional development (local management committees), research, infrastructure( drinking water, trails, bridges, etc) and economic development (agriculture, animal husbandry, tourism).
