Himalayan Feast on the Annapurna Trail

Himalayan Feast on the Annapurna Trail

Posted Mar 29th, 2012 under Photo Essay, Trekking & Hiking,

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.

Happy Explorers

The itinerary was nice, in that we got to see and experience many different types of climate during the trek, i.e., rainforests to mountain passes to villages.
