Both this base camp has nice and cozy lodges with limited accommodations possibilities. The base camp is located within the sanctuary hidden between array and amphitheater of giant peaks. It is one of the most scenic spots to visit and experience the beautiful areas. Annapurna's name is derived from ancient Sanskrit word Anna and Purna which means crops and enough respectively. Annapurna is also a goddess of the harvest.
