Terraces in Annapurna Region 2

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means "full of food" (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. It is a section of the Himalayas in north-central Nepal, that includes 8,091 meters (26,545 ft) Annapurna I, 13 additional peaks over 7,000 m (22,970 ft) and 16 more over 6,000 meters (19,690 ft). This section is a 55 km (34 mi)-long massif.

Annapurna I is tenth among Earth's fourteen eight thousanders. It rises east of the Kali Gandaki Gorge separating it from Dhaulagiri massif. 8167 meters Dhaulagiri is 34 km to the west and the gorge between is considered Earth's deepest. More info in Wikipedia.
