About the Destination:
The host to not one, not two but six massive peaks of the Himalayas – The Annapurna Massif lies in the northern region of Nepal. Annapurna, a Sanskrit name, denotes to mean the Goddess of Fertility and indeed you will see the meaning manifest itself in full measure as you trudge through its terraced fields, gorges and lush green forests.
While the peaks themselves stretch over 55km, the Annapurna base camp trek brings you within breath-taking distance of the 7,000m high ranges after a trek of 10-11 days. Few mountains can boast of the raw beauty that the base camp of Annapurna possesses! It brings you through oak,pine, rhondondendron and merrily dancing rice fields to a silvery carpet of snow and capricious slopes of lush valleys.
