Himalayan Feast on the Annapurna Trail

Spring Trekking  in the Annapurna Region rewards you with clear skies, good weather, heavenly views of Himalayan peaks and a trail filled with rhodendron blossoms. It is aptly said that trekking in the Annapurna during spring is like  'taking a walk through paradise'. Samir from Sales recently   made that 'walk through paradise' and brought back pictures of his awesome trek. We share a few with you.
