Course:

You are running with the mighty Annapurna ranges in the backdrop. Annapurna range consists of one, over 8000 metre peak, Thirteen, over 7000 metres peaks and sixteen over 6000 metres peaks.

Scenery:

Amazing! No other words required.

Weather conditions:

Chilly in the morning when we start, sunny in the Noon being at the ‘plains’. Then we climb again. If we are lucky there will be a lovely downpour in the evening , giving you a really awesome Himalayan experience of how weather can change in flashest of seconds..

(PS: Thunder Storms, Sudden frantic & fierce galloping of horses, like the female mind.., even the saints with immense wisdom won’t be able to predict the sudden changes in nature and weather conditions! Be prepared.)

Fuel and water stations:

‘Annapurna’ mythologically means ‘Goddess of Food’ in Indian scriptures. So you wont die! There are plenty of resources along the route so fuel and water are not in short supply.

Atmosphere:

Vibrant atmosphere meeting people from various countries and moreover the lovely Nepali people. Last year there were runners from 20 different countries.
