Baraha Lake Trek
The area which is Off from the tourist crowds and the scene somewhere between heaven and Earth, is simple enough; the world’s deepest gorge formed two of the only fourteen 8,000m peaks on the planet. Annapurna I (8,090m) standing right over you. The valley of the Kali Gandaki and eternal free fall below. Beyond it to the west the great white hulk of Dhaulagiri (8,167) as if by metamorphosis, via sunset pink turning to star-escorted midnight blue.
Off from the crowd, Birds life, great views of mountains and Guruing villages and green vegetation
