This is the glacier of Hinchuli (6434m) taken from Annapurna's South glacier. From this glacier basin, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Modi Khola River finds its way south in a narrow gorge 12,000ft.deep. Further south, the gorge opens up into a wide and fertile valley, the domain of the local ethnic group, "Gurungs". -Annapurna's Sanctuary Nepal, 2012-
