British Nepalese Army The Ascent of Annapurna 1970

The Army Mountaineering Association's major expedition for 1970 left England on 10th March for Nepal to climb ANNAPURNA I (26,545 feet). As the tenth highest mountain in the world, ANNAPURNA I, which has been climbed only once previously by a French expedition in 1950, presented one of the greatest challenges in the Himalayas.
