Up to 1950, no mountain vistas higher than 8000 meters had ever been ascended. On 3rd of June 1950, a French expedition team led by Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal became the first climbers in history to climb the summit of Himalayan Mountain Annapurna I.
This expedition group wanted to try either Dhaulagiri (8167 meters) or Annapurna I (8091 meters) and the team initially made a move to start looking for a route to both of these & came to the conclusion that Dhaulagiri was too difficult to ascend, they found their way to the North Face of Annapurna.
The route to North Base Camp of Annapurna is now popular as the French North Face Route.
As they reached the summit of Annapurna without oxygen, down to and from Annapurna became a great challenge and adventurous for them. It was a crazy descent, dodging the snow storm, avalanches, and other miss-happens. Both the group barely made it back to the camp. Annapurna wasn’t then climbed up again until 1970. After that, British Army expedition followed the same route to get into the summit.
