Annapurna Region

image

Annapurna is a section of the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes 8,091 m Annapurna I, thirteen additional peaks over 7,000 m and 16 more over 6,000. This section is a 55 km-long (34 mi-long) massif bounded by the Kali Gandaki Gorge on the west, the Marshyangdi River on the north and east, and Pokhara Valley on the south. Annapurna I is tenth among Earth's fourteen eight-Thousand. 8167m Dhaulagiri I rises 34 km to the west across the Kali Gandaki Gorge, considered Earth's deepest canyon.

Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means "full of food" (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna is "... the universal and timeless kitchen-goddess ... the mother who feeds. Without her there is starvation, a universal fear: This makes Annapurna a universal goddess .Her association with the giving of food (wealth) led her in time to be transformed into Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth.

Annapurna is considered one of the most fabulous trekking destinations in Nepal offering a variety of trekking routes of all grades and styles. The region introduces us the country’s spectacular diversity at its finest-various ethnic tribes and castes.
