The Annapurna region encompasses a full range of peaks suitable for climbing. The most renowned and beautiful peaks are Chula West and Chula East of Mt Damodar.  You will climb to 6,419 m (21,055 ft) and view one of the worlds most gorgeous panoramic scenes including Annapurna, 8091 m; Annapurna II, 7739 m; Annapurna III, 7555 m; Annapurna IV, 7525 m; Hiunchuli, 6441 m; Mt.
