We’re now entering the 8,000-meter club, a mountaineering feat for those determined to stand 8,000 meters (or 26,500 feet) above sea level. Annapurna is not only the Hindu goddess of food and nourishment but also a towering massif in Nepal. It offers a popular trek for individuals and tours, as it’s a steady ascent to the top.
While a climb to the top of Annapurna I is flaked with glacial lakes, snow-capped mountains and wildlife, it’s also known for having some of the best food along the way! The path follows an ancient (and still functioning) trade route, winding its way through local villages. Depending on the route, it’s about a 13- to 17-day trek to the top.
