Finally, after a work out the more than a year, Annapurna III team reached base camp by helicopter and established base camp at 4300m, higher than our planned Base camp. Had to make 8 shuttle from Pokhara with myself, team, staff and expedition load. We had to land between Base camp and Pokhara at the middle of nowhere - no exit point... thanks god .. weather was on our side and we manage to get out on time after dropping all the expedition load, team and staff at Base camp.

Not an ordinary expedition, the expedition had to returned back
last season without reaching base camp due to excess rock fall and danger to cross the col with our porters and staff.
