Part of this magnificent range forms a natural amphitheatre known as the Annapurna Sanctuary. The Annapurna Himal is ringed by such awe-inspiring giants as Hiunchuli (6441m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna I (8091m, the 10th highest in the world), Annapurna II (7939m), Gangapurna (7454m), Fang (7647m) and Annapurna III (7555m).The breathtaking sunrises over the snow-capped mountains together with the appearance of the ‘big tail’ (double summit) of ‘Mt. Fishtail’ (Machapuchare) are truly mind-blowing. Other highlights include the ever-changing landscape of deep subtropical valleys, rice fields, misty forests and tiny villages, incredible rhododendron and bamboo forests, beautiful jungle and, finally, high desert landscapes.
