Ford Escape and The North Face
Ford Escape and The North Face gear offered in a print ad published in a Philippine national paper an ultimate weekend in Annapurna Nepal.
Lonely Planet describes the Annapurna Region as the attraction in Central Nepal. You have a 360 degrees panorama of the Himalayan peaks from the Annapurna sanctuary. You walk around the Annapurna massif crossing the 5,416m Thorung La, pass at the Gurung village at the foot of the high Himalayas and enjoy the hot springs and diverse restaurants at Tatopani. It has the world's deepest valley.
Two thirds if the 100,000 trekkers who visited Nepal in 2000 included Annapurna in their itinerary. Gateway is Pokhara. The shortest trek is for 6 days. Annapurna to Times needs at least 16 days.
A Ford Escape will not bring you anywhere there. Buying a brand new one can win you a ticket to Katmandu.
