Annapurna II (7,937m) is the second highest mountain in the Annapurna Himalayan Range, after Annapurna I (8091m). Annapurna II (7937m) was Chris Boninington’s first major climb. The impressive mountain rises 7937m seen from Pokhara. The normal route is via the West Ridge of the mountain.This is a major undertaking as it involves considerable descent,(ascent on the return!). Given the obstacle of a 3 kilometer ridge at an altitude over 7000 metres, combined with the fact that this mountain lies just below the magic 8000 metres line, may explain why it has been ascended by few expeditions.The expedition team from Yala Adventure lead by Mr. Philipp Kunz, Germany had successfully climbed Annapurna II in winter 2008( February 4th), which is the first winter expedition on the history of this mountain.
